If you’re thinking of buying a smart thermostat, you may be wondering if it is worth the expense. Smart thermostats are a great investment that will reduce energy use and make your Sarasota, Florida, home more comfortable. Here are three reasons to consider upgrading to a smart thermostat.
Comfort and Convenience
One of the great things about living in this modern age is the technology it brings. Homes are becoming more automated and products like smart thermostats bring an extra level of comfort and convenience. With a traditional non-programmable thermostat, you have to adjust the temperature manually. With a programmable thermostat, you can preset the temperature and some smart thermostats even "learn" the habits and patterns of your home and adjust automatically.
Smart thermostats are able to connect to Wi-Fi. This means you can operate it remotely and adjust the temperature from any location via your cellphone, provided you are connected to the internet. If you forget to turn the HVAC system off when you leave home, simply open the mobile app to turn it off or lower the temperature. Hop back on the app to switch it back on before you make your way home.
A major benefit of a smart thermostat is that it helps you save energy and lower your electric bill. Most people forget to adjust the thermostat as the weather shifts throughout the season. Many just "set it and forget it." With a smart thermostat, you can pre-program the temperature so that you don’t have to remember to adjust it. For example, in winter, you can pre-program the thermostat to automatically lower the temperature at night and increase it in the morning. In addition to saving energy, you’ll spend less on HVAC repairs and your furnace will last longer because it won’t be working as hard.
Smart thermostats are a worthwhile upgrade to make in your Sarasota home. They offer convenience and make your home more energy-efficient. If you’re interested in upgrading to a smart thermostat, contact Aqua Plumbing & Air on (941) 306-3715 to inquire about our product range.
