Your thermostat is critical for your home comfort. It allows you to control your home’s internal environment and maintain an indoor temperature that you feel most comfortable in. When you invest in a smart thermostat, you allow yourself to make an even greater difference in your home comfort and to gain even more control over your HVAC system.
Things to keep in mind
- Try to look for a programmable smart thermostat that allows you to preset different temperatures at different times of day. You should also be able to differentiate between your weekly and weekend schedules to fit your lifestyle better.
- A lot of smart thermostats can be controlled through Wi-Fi enabled devices, like your smart phone, so you can control your settings even when you aren’t home. This is especially useful for any last minute changes you’d like to make in case of drastic temperature changes throughout the day.
- A major advantage of installing a smart thermostat is its ability to help keep your energy costs down. Look for a model that allows you to schedule a set-back period for 8-12 hours a day in which your thermostat will adjust your home’s temperate by 1 degree every hour. Through this, you’ll notice a 1% reduc;on in your utility bills. This is a great tactic to use in the winter as you can reduce your home temperature by at least 10 degrees while you’re away during the day. This can result in a 10% reduction on your energy bills!
- Your smart thermostat can be adjusted according to when you are and aren’t home. You’ll be able to enjoy your home comfort systems fully while at home but they won’t be forced to work when you aren’t. This will in turn result in a longer lifespan for your HVAC system due to decreased wear and tear.
