benefits of a smart thermostat
Smart Thermostats are not just control panels for your heating and A/C unit. Smart Thermostats come with wi-fi, sensors and advanced algorithms to help you save energy and time. Below is a list of reasons how a smart thermostat will be beneficial in your home and life.
With a smart thermostat you can create a schedule with the correct temperature zones to save you money on energy bills. Installing a smart thermostat and using it correctly can save you at least 10% on your energy bill.
Smart thermostats have learning functions built in. In combination with the sensors, they can "learn" when people are active and when heating/cooling needs to be on and will change the schedule on its own. This feature helps save time when first programming, and when shifting schedules as the seasons change.
A smart thermostat provides energy reports about how much power you are using. Also, they show how your energy use has changed over time, and how much this is likely to cost you. As a result, these reports are typically bundled with tips on how to adjust temperatures to save money as well.
Your smart thermostat can link up and exchange information with a growing number of other home devices like Alexa and Google assistant. Smart humidifiers and air purifiers, can also be controlled with the thermostat if they are on compatible platforms.
Bonus: Smart thermostats can track the latest local weather reports and make small changes in the temperature if the heat is picking up or a cold front is coming in. Those are just some of the benefits of a smart thermostat.
