These days, technology is making everything “smarter.” Home automation systems now include smart plugs, smart lights, and automated smart home security. Smart devices allow us to operate more efficiently. The result is energy savings and increased control over our environment.

Installing smart devices gives you immediate energy savings through reduced energy usage. The cost savings are an incentive to upgrade as early as possible. Your thermostat is one of these devices. A smart thermostat will help you stay comfortable and minimize costs at the same time.

The Differences Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats.

A manual thermostat never seemed like a big deal in the past. When you were cold, you turned it up. Simple, right? It certainly solved the problem in the short term. However, by failing to turn it back down after, it created another problem. It used energy when it wasn’t needed. Money is often wasted by heating an entire house during the night or when no one is home.

Programmable models took the next step in making heating and cooling more efficient. It was a good feeling to be able to set the time when the heater kicked in each day. It felt even better to adjust the settings for times when you knew that you weren’t going to be around.

These days, we demand more out of our home automation systems, which should include a smart thermostat. We want each room to be at the right temperature without paying any more than is needed on our utility bills. Being Smart means that the thermostat learns your behaviors over time. This has incredible benefits, such as the ability to:

  • Connect to WiFi and allow you to remotely control the temperature of your home with your remote or smartphone.
  • Sense when you’re there or not and automatically adjust the temperature.
  • Incorporate the weather to ensure your home reaches your ideal temperature as efficiently as possible.
  • Provide information on your energy use.

How a Smart Thermostat Can Save You Money.

As it learns your patterns, a smart thermostat does more for less. It takes into account the outside temperature, season, and time of day. Then, it responds to control the temperature inside depending on whether you are home or away. A smart heating and cooling system quickly goes far beyond what you could predict on your own. It’s easy to see how a smart thermostat can save you hundreds of dollars each year.
