What is a Smart Thermostat?

Over past ten or so years, the growth of Smart technology has become noticeable. From smartphones to automobiles, to home appliances, are becoming more advanced to better serve consumers. Smart technologies are everywhere and your heating /cooling system is no different.

Smart thermostats can be found in different styles and many companies like NEST Labs are trying to innovate with new breakthroughs in smart home technology. Because smart technology is a newer technology, there is certainly no lack of options or diversity when it comes to smart thermostats. Here are some of the great features smart thermostats have to offer:

 

Having Remote Access
It may seem simple, but often the simple things need to be appreciated. With a smart thermostat, you will be able to control your heating and cooling system from your phone, tablet, or computer. For example, if you are away from your home for a few days, you can decrease the temperature and save money on your electricity bill. Small things like that can really add up and save you money, while also making it effortless to adjust the system after you left, in case you forget. This is an amazing feature for any home, but especially in second homes that don’t get used very often.

Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency has been vital when it comes to innovation. Smart thermostats aim to do exactly that. Using adaptive learning features as well as programmable systems, smart thermostats are designed to keep your home as comfortable as possible, while using the least amount of energy.

  • Programmable – Smart thermostats do not always need to be manually adjusted to meet your home comfort needs or your schedule. Many allow you to program a schedule.
  • Learning – might sound like something from a sci-fi movie but Smart thermostats can learn from your patterns. Just like the programmable thermostats that can be set to fit your schedule, some of [them|these|the thermostats]70] actually pay attention to the hectic nature of your routines.
  • Account for All the Data – A smart thermostat will typically analyze what the ideal way is to heat or cool your home while using the least amount of energy, based on the data it records. Rather than using the same settings that waste energy, your thermostat can learn the most effective ways to use the minimum amount of energy to be efficient as possible.
  • Environmentally Friendly– A recent study on Climate Change states that one of the ideal ways to prevent climate change was installing a smart thermostat. Because of the reduced amount of energy used, there are lower greenhouse emissions coming from your HVAC equipment.

There you go! Smart thermostats save you money, make your home more comfortable, are more accessible, and better for the environment. If you want to make a simple smart home improvement that will pay off in the long run, a smart thermostat is the way to go!
