How You Can Benefit From a Smart Thermostat

You might not think that upgrading your thermostat can make a huge difference in HVAC effectiveness or efficiency. But a smart thermostat offers a variety of benefits, including elevated comfort and savings on your monthly energy bills. This is especially true if you are upgrading from a much older thermostat.

If you are interested in thermostat service in Waxahachie, TX, give our team a call today. We can complete an in-home assessment to look at your current thermostat and HVAC system and offer upgrade options. In the meantime, you can keep reading to learn more about the unique benefits that a smart thermostat offers.

Boost Accuracy

If you have an older thermostat in place, it may have a manual dial for selecting the indoor air temperature. This is risky because the dial is not 100% accurate. You may think that you’re setting the indoor air temperature to 75° for cooling, but really you’re setting it to 72° instead. 

The difference of the 3° can cost you a lot on your monthly energy bill. A smart thermostat has buttons where you select a precise temperature. If you intend to set the thermostat at 75°, that’s exactly the indoor air temperature that it will maintain. In this way, a smart thermostat can save you money on your energy costs by offering precision. 

Improve Energy Efficiency

There are also other ways that you can boost energy efficiency by using a smart thermostat. The first is by customizing your settings. You can select one temperature for your home when you are there and another temperature for your home when you are away. You can preselect these settings to change automatically. 

For example, you may set your thermostat to be a little bit warmer while you are away at work so that you aren’t paying to cool an empty house. Similarly, you may set your thermostat to be higher when you are out of town for an extended period of time. Many smart thermostats can even monitor your energy usage and make recommendations for how you can boost efficiency even more.

Change Settings When You’re Away from Home

What happens if you forget to set your thermostat or need to make changes while you’re away? The great thing about a smart thermostat is that it is enabled to connect to Wi-Fi. You can download an app that allows you to control your smart thermostat from anywhere. 

If you plan to get home early, you can adjust the preset to begin cooling your home down, so it is comfortable when you arrive. Alternately, if you plan to be away for longer, you can adjust the settings so that the temperature does not stay lower when you don’t plan to be home.
