For most homeowners, controlling the temperature in your home means manually adjusting a thermostat that regulates your heating and air conditioning system. If you have a programmable thermostat, you have the benefits of setting the temperature for different times of the day. The next step in the evolution of heating and cooling is smart, wi-fi-enabled thermostats that enable you to control your home’s climate remotely, learn from your habits and behaviors, monitor your energy consumption in real-time and even adjust the temperature based on ambient conditions like humidity.
This means you don’t have to turn the dial from a panel on your wall to change the temperature. Instead, you can tell your HVAC system to turn on or off from an app on a mobile device. Your smart thermostat will not only adjust the temperature. It will also show you how long it will take to make the change you requested. And, you can keep track of how much you’re really spending on cooling and heating costs.
Could a Smart Thermostat Save You Money?
Although a smart thermostat is more expensive than your standard wall-mounted, programmable model, it may be able to save you dollars in the long run by enabling you to better manage your energy consumption. This is particularly true if you’re forgetful about adjusting a programmable thermostat and choose a learning type smart thermostat that can eliminate the hassle out of managing your home’s temperature.
While cost-savings is certainly a perk, the real benefit of a smart thermostat is automating a task that you previously had to do manually. Not having to adjust your wall-mounted thermostat every time you leave, come home or go on vacation may be well worth the investment.
