Smart home automations are intended to make our lives easier. We are now able to control basic home management tasks like sprinklers, lights, and thermostats all from an app on our phones. Smart thermostats can regulate the temperature of your home more effectively and allows you to manage your home’s heating and cooling systems remotely. Smart thermostats do tend to be pricier than traditional thermostats, but here are 3 reasons to install a smart thermostat in your home.
Despite a popular misconception, programming a smart thermostat to a schedule for the heating and cooling of your home is a breeze. Some smart thermostats have movement detectors that can learn from the movement in your home. It will then heat and cool based on your family’s schedule. Smart home thermostats can also monitor the weather and then heat and cool your home accordingly.
You’ve just boarded your plane and realized you forgot to set your heating and cooling system. If you have installed a smart thermostat you could alter your home’s temperature from anywhere– even on vacation. You simply have to log into your thermostat app to control the temperature of your home.
A smart thermostat can also alert you if the interior temperature of your home has fallen above or below your set temperatures. This allows you to monitor the health of your system and alert you if something is not working properly.
Of all the reasons to install a smart thermostat one of the best reasons is it can provide accurate and informative information on your energy usage. You can often zero in on the correct temperature in your home to save you money on your energy bill. Some smart thermostats predict savings of 10-23% on heating and cooling costs.
There are hundreds of smart thermostats on the market today and finding the perfect one for your home can be a daunting task. The smart thermostat that we most commonly install and highly recommend is the Lennox iComfort S30 Smart Thermostat. It functions in six important ways that a standard thermostat cannot.
