Smart thermostats have changed the way people cool their homes. These technologies give working professionals a great deal of control over their HVAC systems, even when they’re not at home. If you’re on the fence about installing a smart thermostat in your Lake City, GA, home, here are three reasons why you might want to.
1. Control the Temp with Your Phone
Smart thermostat technology works with your phone via your home’s Wi-Fi. Once the setup is complete, you can adjust the temps in your home via your phone as well as the wall unit. To do this, you’ll need to download an app from the manufacturer’s website. A service technician can walk you through this. Once your phone has the app and you’ve synced the thermostat with your Wi-Fi, you can adjust your thermostat even if you’re not at home.
2. Preference Memory
There is a reason these devices are called smart devices. They remember you and your preferences. In this case, once the thermostat understands your temperature preferences, it’ll adjust the temperature on your central air conditioner system automatically. This means if you forget to adjust the temperature before you go to sleep, it’s not a problem. The thermostat will do it for you.
3. Energy Savings
You can save as much as 25% on your utility bills when you choose to install a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat’s remote access features allow you to monitor your central air conditioner’s temperature. You can turn it up when you are away from your home and turn it down right before you get home.
