Thermostats have come a long way since the days of your parents and grandparents. By incorporating computer technology, sensors,and your home’s Wi-Fi network, these devices can offer homeowners an array of features never before imagined.
Smart thermostats are far more accurate and informative than manual thermostats. As such, most manufacturers of these devices predict homeowners will see an annual savings on energy bills between fifteen to twenty percent.
Smart thermostats have a long-term learning feature that allows them to learn your living patterns within your home. By using a combination of sensors and other built in features, these thermostats monitor when you and your family are most active to better predict when settings should adjust.
Better Tracking of Energy Use
Unlike manual thermostats, a smart thermostat uses computer technology to monitor energy use and efficiency. These devices will then provide reports that allow you to utilize your home energy consumption.
Remote Control of Your Home
Because a smart thermostat is linked to your home’s WIFI network, once you download the manufacturers app, you can control the temperature in your home remotely. This allows you to make instant adjustments as your schedule changes. You no longer have to worry about forgetting to set the temperature before heading out of town for the weekend. Now, there’s an app for that.
Your smart thermostat is compatible with voice command technology used in Amazon and Google devices. This allows you to make adjustments on the spot simply by speaking a command without having to interrupt what you’re doing.
Complete Energy Profile
Through the use of the systems app, you can create a detailed energy profile of your home. The app will use information about your home’s size, location, layout, and HVAC system to provide detailed information about the efficiency of your energy usage.
Track Weather Changes
Many of the newest smart thermostats automatically monitor weather changes in your area. The thermostat can adjust the temperature in your home based on local weather patterns.
