Reasons To Upgrade to a Smart or Programmable HVAC Thermostat
Thermostats are an integral part of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. They sense the indoor temperature and signal when the unit should turn on to deliver conditioned air and turn off when reaching the set temperature.
Older, mechanical HVAC thermostats simply sense indoor temperature. Adjustments are made by hand, and readings are often inaccurate. Both affect comfort and energy usage. Today’s programmable and smart thermostats offer much more. When used properly, they reduce energy usage, which saves money on utility bills. Smart thermostats automatically adjust to your schedule and lifestyle, keeping your indoor environment comfortable 24 hours a day.
Programmable thermostats let you set specific temperatures for various times of day and days of the week. By setting the thermostat back at night or when you are away for 8 hours or more, they use less energy and can save at least 10% on energy bills.
Many people find them easier to use because they have touch screen controls and digital readouts that are easy to see. Once programmed, you do not have to worry about remembering to reset the thermostat. Some can be controlled by interactive devices. If you want to change a setting after you leave home, you can do it from your smartphone, computer, or tablet.
Smart HVAC Thermostats
Smart thermostats take this efficiency and convenience one step higher. These Wi-Fi-enabled devices are easy to use because they learn your preferences and automatically adjust temperatures for optimum comfort and energy savings. Some can read real-time outdoor temperatures, monitor indoor humidity, track energy usage and exchange information with other smart devices on compatible platforms. If you have zoned heating and cooling, smart thermostats let you precisely control each zone without affecting comfort in other areas.
