Whether you are in the thick of the cold, winter season or in the middle of a hot and humid New Jersey summer, upgrading to a smart thermostat is always worth it. Now if you are only interested in manually changing your thermostat for the rest of your life and not concerned with saving energy and money, you might be content with your current thermostat. However, we know that is not the case with most people. Technology continues to evolve and will continue to evolve and so will the heating and air conditioning world. It not only changes the way we communicate, learn, and drive, it changes how we live! Below we will discuss what a smart thermostat is and some of the benefits you experience when you upgrade to one.
What is a Smart Thermostat?
A smart thermostat (also known as a connected thermostat) is a thermostat that connects to your home Wi-Fi connection which allows you to control it with your phone, tablet, smart speaker, or other internet-connected devices. They allow you to schedule or program your desired temperature settings for different times during the day on specific days.
As we mentioned above, your smart thermostat connects to your Wi-Fi. This enables you to have complete control over your home heating and air conditioning system no matter where you are in the world. If you’re on your way home from a long vacation, you can hope on your phone to change your thermostat to be at an optimal temperature again so you will feel immediate comfort once you arrive back home. Or maybe you’re running late to work and forgot to crank down your HVAC system, no problem just change it via your smartphone once you arrive at work.
One of the biggest advantages of owning and operating a smart thermostat is its energy-saving components. They provide you with the most energy-efficient thermostat settings while keeping your home comfortable. Smart thermostats allow you to program your temperature settings for different times of the day on different days. So if you want your HVAC system to crank down a bit while you are away from work, you can program it to do so. You will not only be saving money, but you will also be helping your HVAC system run more efficiently since it isn’t having to work hard for you 24/7.
Last but certainly not least, smart thermostats have learning capabilities. What we mean by that is your smart thermostat can actually learn when the people in your home are active. So if you don’t want to have to go through the process of programming your thermostat schedule yourself, your thermostat will adjust the temperature of your home according to your home schedule. Additionally, your thermostat can give you feedback and tips on how to reduce your energy usage, helping you save even more money!
