Smart thermostats have risen in popularity the last several years. Whether you’re more inclined to purchase a Nest, an EcoBee, a Lyric, or something else, one thing is for sure—a smart thermostat can make a big difference in how you take care of your home. From forgetting to turn down the air conditioner when you leave for work to increasing the heat in your home on a cold, rainy day, a smart thermostat makes it easy to protect and monitor your heating and air systems. And that’s only one reason why they’ve become so popular.
You program a traditional thermostat when you are home. Adjusting the numbers based on your comfort level, you have to control how your heating and air systems work. But with a smart thermostat, there’s a lot less pressure on you. That’s because a smart thermostat can actually learn and adjust itself based on things like temperature, humidity level, and even your family’s activities (home or away, awake or asleep). For families that are frequently out of their homes for school, work, and play, a smart thermostat is a great solution.
Additionally, a smart thermostat can be controlled by your phone, allowing you to remotely adjust things like temperature. So when you forget to set the thermostat before you leave for work, you don’t have to worry about how much it’s going to cost you on your next energy bill. Or if you’re traveling for work or pleasure, you can adjust the temperature of your home from wherever you have a signal.
There are even more reasons why smart thermostats have risen in popularity the last few years. For those homeowners who are budget conscious, a smart thermostat provides an array of benefits. Not only can it keep homeowners informed about the temperature back home. A smart thermostat provides beneficial information like energy usage and even maintenance alerts—so you know when to call the experts at Service America and schedule your semi-annual air conditioner or HVAC checkup.
Are you considering a smart thermostat for your home? Because they’ve helped so many people gain more control over their heating and cooling systems, smart thermostats have become a popular choice among homeowners. But not all smart thermostats are the same. Some are designed to work for specific brands. Be sure to do your research before installing one in your home. And remember to call Service America, so a technician can check out your air conditioning or HVAC system after your smart thermostat is installed in order to call identify to any issues that may arise.
