Are you tired of skyrocketing energy bills during the hot summer months? As the heat increases, your energy bills shouldn’t as well. That is where a smart thermostat can come in handy. Instead of fighting with the Summer heat to cool your residence or business, let your system do the work for you. Smart thermostats provide amazing energy efficiency, cost reduction, ease of use and mobile technology, and will learn your home’s heating and air needs as it operates for a fully enhanced heating and cooling experience, year-round. With that being said, Fritts Heating & Air goes into more detail about the benefits of upgrading to a smart thermostat.
What Are They?
A smart thermostat is an advanced temperature control device designed to provide enhanced comfort and convenience in your home or work. Unlike traditional thermostats, smart thermostats incorporate intelligent features and connectivity to automate temperature settings based on your household’s usage and presence.
Benefits Of Upgrading To A Smart System
When optimized for energy efficiency, a smart thermostat will help you with energy savings and bills. Many smart thermostats provide detailed energy usage reports and insights that break down your consumption patterns and track how much energy you’re using and when. This can be accessed on your mobile device for easy reading and understanding.
A great feature is that a smart thermostat will learn your household schedule and adjust its usage to be utilized when needed and save when not. Some have room sensors that can measure the temperature in a specific room or area of the home and heat or cool it based on its current temperature, reducing hot or cold spots. These functions can be vital to savings and put that extra money back into your pocket.
Convenience & Comfort
As mentioned before many smart thermostats learn your temperature preferences and establish a schedule that automatically adjusts to energy-saving temperatures when you are asleep or away. Newer technology like voice commands and geofencing also are great benefits.
- Geofencing allows your smart thermostat to know when you’re on the way home and automatically adjusts your home’s temperature to your liking.
- Voice command technology like Alexa and Siri allows homeowners to control their temperature with a simple voice command. This makes it easier for you to adjust the temperature without leaving your couch or table.
Learning & Adaptation
Smart devices continue to grow in terms of compatibility with other systems. This basically means that your smart system can connect and exchange information with a number of other smart devices. For example, smart humidifiers and air purifiers can be controlled with the thermostat if they are on compatible platforms.
From this, a smart thermostat homeowner is able to get more information about the efficiency of their system and every other system that may be linked to it. Some systems like Ecobee are even able to adjust your thermostat based on the weather outside. If you are interested in those features be sure to ask your Fritts technician about them today!
Energy Usage Insights
A smart thermostat provides energy reports about how much energy you are using. Smart systems also show how your energy use has changed over time, and how much this is likely to cost you. As a result, these reports typically offer useful tips on adjusting temperatures to save you money. Lastly, periodic software updates are done to ensure your smart thermostat is using the latest algorithms and energy-saving features available.
Improving the energy efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system not only saves you money—it also helps protect the environment by reducing harmful carbon emissions. You can help reduce air pollution, improve air quality, and protect the planet against climate change.
Increase Your Home Value
Are you looking to sell your home or business in the near future? A smart thermostat can simply improve the value of your home. According to studies, having a more energy-efficient and modern home is not only good for builders and buyers, but it’s also extremely helpful for those looking to sell. Energy-efficient homes tend to have a higher resale value.
Savings & Rebates
In most states, power companies offer rebates for installing smart thermostats. In the state of Georgia, homeowners can receive up to a $75 rebate when they purchase a Smart, Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat from the Georgia Power Marketplace. Learn more about available rebates through HEIP and how you can participate as a single-family or multifamily residential customer.
