Smart Thermostats—The Benefits

Smart homes are trending, and it is a trend that is here to stay. As technology becomes increasingly embedded in our lives, most of it careless and not-necessary, why not install a technological system that will actually benefit you by making your life easier and your home more comfortable? Come up with any reasons? We thought not.

So even though there are no clear reasons as to why you haven’t already called Air Conditioning Specialist to install your new smart thermostat, here are the benefits of adding smart thermostat technology to your home.

Save Energy & Minimize Energy Costs

With the ability to pre-set temperature fluctuations to match your schedule, a smart thermostat allows for exponential energy cost savings. Pro tip: lower your thermostat when you are not home, so you are using less energy, and set your thermostat to raise your home temperature before you return from work, so your home is at your desired climate when you arrive. You can save up to 15% on cooling costs and up to 12% on heating costs with the installation of a smart thermostat.

Remote Control Capabilities

Smart thermostats come with mobile apps, enabling you to control your home’s climate from remote locations. This function is great when traveling! You will be able to heat or cool your home in advance of your return, so you enter a comfortable climate after a long day of traveling.

Eliminate Forgetfulness

We have all left our homes with our air conditioning or heating blasting. With a smart thermostat, your system will be able to sense movement and adjust the temperature if it detects an empty home. These systems also observe the weather, responding accordingly when temperatures outside increase and decrease—further optimizing energy-savings.
