Chances are you’re reading this post on your smart phone. If not, you’re online which is the same place you could be adjusting your home comfort system. There are a number of thermostat options for you to choose from too. You can choose from the regular model, which allows you to control your heating and cooling from a control panel in your home. There are programmable thermostats, which allow you to program your system to change temperatures at different times of the day. Then, there are smart thermostats, which connect with your home’s Wi-Fi and allow you to remotely control and monitor your heating and cooling system. Not only that, but a smart thermostat will alert you when your system needs any service or maintenance.
The “smart” part of a smart thermostat isn’t just that it allows you to control your home’s temperature from a mobile device, but it actually learns from your behaviors. You are able to see and adjust your energy consumption and can even make adjustments based on conditions such as humidity.
The technology behind both programmable and smart thermostats is continuing to evolve and with wireless technology you can install the latest upgrades to your smart thermostat just like you would on your phone, tablet or laptop.
Some of the additional benefits are:
- Easy adjustments. Again, smart thermostats aren’t just a clever name. They actually learn and will make adjustments according to your lifestyle. They work to keep you comfortable and to save you money. And they are easy to adjust. If you’ve ever gotten into bed and realized you’re too hot, no need to get out of bed to adjust the thermostat, just grab your phone and let your smart thermostat take care of things.
- Helpful reminders. As we are always reminding customers, it’s really important to change your filters. You won’t need our reminders after upgrading to a smart thermostat. Your thermostat will let you know when it’s time for a filter change or if another issue arises and you’re in need of service.
- Save money. In addition to the energy savings, there are also rebates available in our area through Mass Save. They are offering rebates for both programmable and smart thermostats.
