Take a stroll over to your thermostat—do you have the best model for your home? You might want to give the question a kneejerk “yes” response because your thermostat seems to do its job. It turns on your air conditioner when you need it, turns it off when you don’t, and seems to display the temperature of your home accurately. Just because your thermostat does a decent job, doesn’t mean that it does the work that you need.

What’s a Smart Thermostat?
Now you might think that you know what a smart thermostat is because there are so many “smart” products on the market right now. If you’re not reading this on a smartphone right now then you probably have one in your pocket, you probably have a smart tv, a smart tablet, or maybe even a smartwatch.
Your thermostat is in charge of two things—monitoring the temperature of the area and turning on your climate control systems. Smart thermostats go above and beyond because they “learn” how you like to cool and heat your home. Eventually, they can anticipate your needs. Install a smart thermostat if you’re ready to take your home to the next level of comfort.
The Benefits of Smart Thermostats
Smart thermostats have a wide array of benefits in your home:
- Save Energy: Smart thermostats can help you save money on your energy bills. Since this system controls your HVAC system year-round, you’ll benefit from the savings in your home throughout the year. Smart thermostats help you save money because they’re efficient and allow you to use less energy to heat or cool your home. Smart thermostats prompt you to make energy-saving choices and can even adjust your settings for you if you allow this capability.
- Increase Your Comfort: We touched on this above, but smart thermostats can come to anticipate your needs over time. After the first few weeks of being in your home, your smart thermostat will learn when you like to turn your HVAC system on and off and what temperatures you prefer. So let’s say that you come home in the evening around 6 p.m. Your smart thermostat will anticipate this after a few weeks and turn on your air conditioner for you around this time. You’ll never have to walk into a hot house ever again!
- Helpful Features: Smart thermostats are great too because they’re designed to make your life a lot easier. Smart thermostats can suggest energy-efficient temperature settings, remind you to schedule maintenance services for your HVAC systems, and even tell you when its time to replace your filter. Smart thermostats take the guesswork out of efficient thermostat operation.
