Everything You Need to Know About Smart Thermostats
The staff at Cooper Heating & Cooling knows that your heating and cooling costs make up a big chunk of the monthly budget of your home. New climate control technologies are working to make homes more efficient. Incorporating smart thermostats into your system is a small change that can make a big difference in your utility bills.
Increased Energy Efficiency
You want a comfortable home in every season, but you don’t need your system to run when everyone is out. Smart thermostats have the benefits of other programmable thermostats. You can enter the times when the system should work and the times when it can be idle. Smart thermostats take this control to the next level. A smart thermostat can monitor your household patterns over time, learning your temperature needs more precisely. Even 15 minutes a day of lower system operation adds up to hours of savings over a few weeks.
Remote Access Convenience
Most smart thermostats allow you to control them through an app on your phone or computer. You will never have to worry about turning off the program when you go on vacation. If you forget to make adjustments, you can command your thermostat from across town or across the country. This also means easy control if you change your routine. If you are coming home from work early or someone is at homesick, you can have the thermostat warm or cool the house to the appropriate setting.
The Power of Information
In addition to learning your heating and cooling patterns, a smart thermostat can also alert you to system problems such as the need for a filter change. This will help your climate control system run at its best. Smart thermostats can also provide a regular report about your energy use and offer suggestions on ways to improve your home’s efficiency.
