5 Signs You Need a Smart Thermostat

You should probably get a smart thermostat if your home doesn’t feel comfortable or you neglect to modify temperature settings when you leave.

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

  1. Your energy bills keep getting more expensive.
  2. You’re regularly forgetting to lower or raise the thermostat.
  3. Your agenda is jam-packed—and often changes.
  4. You’re having trouble controlling your home’s temperature.
  5. You want to limit energy waste.

How Smart Thermostats Save Energy

A smart thermostat takes the estimating out of handling your home’s temperature. It’s an excellent choice if you have a programmable thermostat that’s set accurately or inadvertently leave your HVAC system working all day.

It uses less energy by keeping the temperature as low as practical for the greatest amount of time as possible. This helps prevent wasting money on heating and cooling when you’re away. Then, it warms up or cools down your house based on when you come home.

Small temperature changes can add up to large savings over the course of a year—between 12 to 23 percent, according to two top manufacturers. Your actual savings can depend on the part of the country where you are located, the size of rooms in your house, and your temperature and humidity needs.

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 running properly.

Can’t remember when you last changed your air filter? Or when you need to schedule routine tune-ups? Your thermostat can prompt you when it’s time.
