Why We Love Smart Thermostats for Homes (and You Should Too!)
If you’re like most people, you love saving money. And if you’re like most people, you also love convenience. So why not combine the two and buy a smart thermostat for your home? Smart thermostats are amazing devices that can help you save money on your energy bill while also making it easier to regulate your home’s temperature. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why we think everyone should invest in a smart thermostat.
They Are Easy To Use
They’re smart! Smart thermostats learn your schedule and preferences over time, taking the thinking out of smart home comfort.
Smart thermostats have a ton of great features built-in beyond smart convenience. You can control them from anywhere with a smartphone, automatically adjust the temperature based on a schedule set by you or a local weather report, program heating and cooling to turn on before you arrive home from work each day and that’s just to start! Most smart thermostats also feature remote access, allowing you to increase or decrease the temperature while you’re away from your smart home.
Smart thermostats work with other smart devices too, meaning you can create a smart home that’s smart and efficient. You’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without a smart thermostat!
They Save You Money
A smart thermostat is a great way to make smart energy decisions in your smart home. You can monitor and get reports on energy use for optimal savings, but one of the best features of modern-day smart thermostats is their ability to learn how you live and automatically adjust your HVAC system for superior comfort and savings.
The smart devices automatically detect when there is nobody home; they then turn off all appliances that are used when nobody is home such as air conditioning units or heating systems which would only cause the systems to function unnecessarily and will end up causing steep utility bills. By performing this action, smart devices help save electricity and money regularly.
Furthermore, smart devices can learn to recognize the household’s patterns and program themselves to save energy. Having smart devices at home will not only help ease the load of doing everyday chores but also allow homeowners to enjoy their time together without worrying about utility bills.
Smart Thermostats Learn Your Preferences And Make Adjustments Based On Them
Smart thermostats are smart because they can learn your preferences and adjust accordingly. They do this by recording certain data points, such as how long it takes to heat your home to a certain temperature or how long you typically run your furnace.
They use that information to understand what temperatures you enjoy most and when you like them best. Then the smart thermostat will automatically start heating or cooling at those times and adjust itself throughout the day in order to save energy and keep you comfortable.
You Can Use Your Smartphone To Control Your Smart Thermostats
Most smart thermostat companies offer smartphone apps, which allow you to turn your smart thermostats on and off, change the temperature, and receive alerts. For example, you can use your smartphone to see when your smart thermostat has turned on or off in the morning or evening, plus adjust the temperature for different times of the day.
You can also set up geofencing technology so that if you leave town your smart device will automatically turn down the heat or air conditioning before you leave home.
They Are Compatible With A Variety Of Smart Gadgets
What makes smart thermostats so smart is their compatibility with other smart devices. Not only are smart thermostats compatible with smart home managers like Google Home and Amazon Alexa, but they’re designed to communicate with other smart devices throughout your home.
This creates a network of smart devices that can easily work together to automate tasks, create more energy-efficient homes, improve security, monitor your health and safety, and more.
Smart Thermostats Offer Control Through Automation
One of the biggest benefits smart thermostats offer is the ease of controlling them through automation. Instead of having to adjust the heat every time you come in or go out on a cold day, smart thermostats can learn when turning up or down your heat based on your smartphone. This means less time fiddling with the heat and more time getting ready or relaxing after work, which is a smart choice for homeowners.
Smart Thermostats Are Easy To Install
Another reason why we love smart thermostats is their ease of installation, which saves you money compared to hiring an HVAC professional to install them. When smart thermostats are pre-programmed to all of your home’s heating and cooling systems, there’s nothing for you to do but enter basic information about your home’s heating system. This ensures smart thermostats fit seamlessly into your home because they’re working just as hard as you on saving energy and money!
As you can see, there are a number of benefits to using smart thermostats. Whether your goal is saving more money on energy bills or being able to control the temperature from anywhere in the house without having to get up off the couch, these devices have something for everyone.
