When you want to adjust a home’s temperature, walking up to the thermostat and manually changing the setting is still the most common way to do so, but the arrival of the “smart thermostat” is changing things quite a bit. This tech-based system provides ways to save more money and regulate interior temperatures more conveniently.
How a Smart Thermostat Works
Like any traditional thermostat, a smart thermostat controls the furnace and air conditioning system in a home. However, a significant difference sets smart thermostats apart from traditional ones. Smart thermostats are programmable and integrated with home automation systems. Users gain far more control over the operation of their heating and cooling equipment thanks to technological features and functions.
Installing a smart thermostat may require assistance from an HVAC contractor. Homeowners in Lebanon, NJ, could ask Mighty Ducts Heating & Cooling for furnace and thermostat help. We’ll be happy to oblige.
Automatic and Programmable Options
A smart thermostat offers you the ability to program temperature settings. You could leave the thermostat at 55 degrees during the workday and program it to rise to 62 degrees at 3:30 p.m. This way, you can enjoy the desired temperature when returning from work without wasting energy during the day.
Smart thermostats also come with automatic, on-command functions that allow you to change a setting in real time with an app. A smartphone or tablet may serve as the “command center” where you can raise or lower temperature from a remote location, even one far away.
Saving Energy and Money
Many benefits come with using a smart thermostat. Regulating your home’s temperature better could reduce your high heating and cooling bills. The furnace or AC might get some relief as well, which could extend its life while decreasing service visits.
