Thermostats used to be a simple piece of home equipment that people didn’t give much thought to. Recently, though, smart thermostats have become a game-changer in creating perfect, comfortable living spaces. Here are a few thermostat features you should look for to improve your Immokalee, Florida, home:
One of the most useful features of modern smart thermostats is their ability to be controlled from anywhere through smart devices. If you forget to turn your thermostat down before you leave for work, you can do it on your phone. Once you’re ready to head home, use your phone to raise or lower the temperature on your thermostat to make sure your home is comfortable by the time you walk through the door.
To save money on your utility bills, you first have to know where your home uses its energy. Many smart thermostats give you detailed reports on when and where your HVAC system is using its energy. This helps you get a better idea of how you can adjust your heating and cooling habits to lower your monthly bills and improve your HVAC system’s efficiency.
Although programmable thermostats have been around for a while, smart thermostats take scheduling to the next level. Smart thermostats can be programmed manually, but some models will learn your habits and adjust themselves to fit your needs. For example, after a few days of lowering the temperature on your system before you go to work, a smart thermostat will begin to recognize the pattern and do it for you.
Smart thermostats make zoning your home’s HVAC system a breeze. Instead of having to painstakingly adjust each zone’s thermostat to program it to your liking, a system equipped with smart thermostats can be controlled from one smart device, such as a phone or tablet.
