5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

It might be time for a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you forget to change temperature settings when you leave.

Here’s a few other signs a smart thermostat is right for your home:

  1. Your energy bills keep going up.
  2. You’re constantly forgetting to adjust the thermostat.
  3. Your agenda is jam-packed—and often changes.
  4. You’re having trouble evening out your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to reduce energy waste.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guesswork out of managing your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s configured correctly or accidentally leave your HVAC system on all day.

It saves energy by keeping the temperature as low as feasible for the greatest amount of time as possible. This helps you avoid wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re not home. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on your arrival.

Small temperature adjustments can add up to large savings over the length of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two major manufacturers. Your actual savings can depend on where you live, the size of rooms in your house, and your temperature and humidity needs.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

Since smart thermostats are Wi-Fi-enabled, you can control them with a smartphone, tablet or laptop while you’re away. You can also watch your system’s performance and get alerts if your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump isn’t operating appropriately.

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you should make an appointment for routine service? Your thermostat can let you know when it’s time.
