5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

You should probably get a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you forget to change temperature settings when you take off.

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

  1. Your energy bills keep going up.
  2. You’re regularly forgetting to change settings on the thermostat.
  3. Your calendar is hectic—and frequently changes.
  4. You’re having difficulty regulating your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to limit energy spending.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the guessing out of controlling your home’s temperature. It’s a great choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set properly or unintentionally leave your HVAC system working all day.

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

Small temperature changes can add up to sizable savings over the duration of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two leading manufacturers. Your actual savings can depend on the part of the country where you are located, how big your house is, and your temperature and humidity settings.

Monitor Your Home While You’re Away

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

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you have to make an appointment for routine tune-ups? Your thermostat can remind you when it’s time.
