Smart thermostats are increasing in popularity among Arizona homeowners. These thermostats can be used with just about any home automation. They are also highly reliable to control your home’s cooling and heart systems. Smart thermostats boast an elegant look and are much more refined than thermostats of the past.
Installing a smart thermostat to control your HVAC systems, you will have the opportunity to create automatic and programmable settings. These settings can be based on your daily schedule, weather, and personal needs. A smart thermostat has several advantages to consider before you decide on whether or not to install one.
5 Advantages Of A Smart Thermostat
1- Remote Access – Smart thermostats are linked through your WiFi which allows you to control your systems remotely. This is particularly helpful if you forget to adjust the temperature before you leave your home for vacation or are planning on coming home before your cooling schedule turns on. Within the smart thermostat system, you also have the ability to set limits that will alert you if your HVAC system is not working properly.
2- Track Energy Usage – Most digital or smart thermostats have the ability to track energy usage over time. By doing this, you can see how your usage affects your energy costs and how adjusting your cooling system settings can lower costs. Storing this data is made easy within an application on your cellular phone or other devices.
3- Create A Schedule – One of the most important advantages of a smart thermostat is its ability to create a schedule for your cooling and heating systems. You have the ability to completely customize the schedule to fit your life every day of the week. Programming this schedule is simple within the smart thermostat’s mobile application.
Some smart thermostats are also equipped with movement detectors. These are used by the thermostat to detect movement throughout the day. Over time, your thermostat will learn the patterns of the household and automatically adjust the schedule. Additional indicators can be set for the thermostat to automatically adjust for weather as well.
4- Straightforward Installation & Use – Smart thermostats are created to be easily installed and are very intuitive to use. Before installation, make sure you have the proper wiring available and be sure to turn off any breakers leading to those wires. If you are unclear about the wiring or how to install the thermostat, consult your local HVAC company or electrician. Improper installation could cause your system to not function properly.
5- Reduce Energy Costs – The previous 4 advantages of installing a smart thermostat help create this 5th and possibly the greatest advantage, reduced energy cost. Having remote access and creating a schedule to turn back your HVAC systems when you are not home can help reduce the energy costs. Also, tracking your usage can help you understand how to best utilize your system and have it run at its most efficient rate. Over time, you should be able to see a difference in your energy bills.
