The Benefits of Using a Smart Thermostat

When the heat of the Tampa Bay summer creeps in, you’ll want to be able to control your thermostat with the touch of a button. While you want to keep your family cool and comfortable when you are at home, you don’t want to rack up high energy costs by running your AC all day, which is where a smart thermostat comes in. Intrigued? Here are Super Heat & Air’s top five reasons to make the switch to a smart thermostat NOW!

Minimize Energy Costs

One of the best reasons to upgrade to a smart ( WiFi) thermostat is that it can help you save on energy costs. You can easily schedule your HVAC system to run less while you are at work for the day, so you’ll in turn use less energy by cooling your home only when needed. You can also program your thermostat to kick on right before you get home so that your house is at the perfect temperature as soon as you walk in the door.

Track Your Energy Usage

Most smart thermostats will allow you to track your energy usage, which can help you build a home energy profile that tells you how much your usage has changed over time, and how you could possibly adjust your HVAC system to save even more!

Remotely Control Your Thermostat

If you want to be able to control your HVAC with ease from your phone, wherever you are, then a smart thermostat is perfect for you. If you want to change the temperature, you can simply log into your thermostat’s app, and adjust the cooling schedule. An unexpected cold front coming through? Turn up the heat! See? Simple! Plus, if you are going on vacation, you can set the temperature to a warmer setting while you are away, and monitor it if need be.

If you are away from your home for an extended time or have a vacation house that you maintain, you can easily get alerts sent to you from the smart thermostat that lets you know when the temperature has fallen below or risen above your set limits.

Schedule HVAC Usage

Don’t worry, digital smart thermostats aren’t hard to program, or adjust. In fact, your heating and cooling usage will be MUCH easier with a smart thermostat because you can set it and forget it! Most smart thermostats have movement detectors, which can tell when you or your family members arrive home. Over time, it will learn your family’s movement patterns, and adjust the heating and cooling accordingly. A smart thermostat can even monitor the weather. It can cool your home when a heatwave is coming, and heat it when a cold snap sets in. Neat huh?

Easy to Install

As long as you have the right thermostat wiring, installing a smart thermostat is easy peasy. If you remove the cover of your current thermostat and take a look at the wiring. If you see a wire marked with a C, and others marked R, W, Rc, or, Rh, you should be able to install a smart thermostat.

Generally, it’s a pretty easy install, and instructions will come with the smart thermostat. But the pros at Super Heat & Air are only a phone call away, and are happy to help your family stay comfortable by installing a smart thermostat!
