Have you finally come to the conclusion that it’s time to ditch your old thermostat for something new? Are you excited about the prospects of installing a smart thermostat?
While there are many of these to choose from, some are more advanced than others. Here are a handful of smart thermostat features that have the opportunity to change your life (for the better):
- Mobile access. Forget about getting up off the couch when you want to adjust your thermostat. With a smart thermostat, you can use your mobile phone or tablet to turn up the heat or blast the AC.
- Voice control. Even better than mobile access, some smart thermostats have voice control. This allows you to make the necessary changes all by speaking. Talk about fast and efficient.
- Thermostat learning. You want a thermostat that learns your routines and understands what makes you comfortable. A smart thermostat can do just that, adjusting the heat and AC based on your daily preferences.
- Regular alerts. Can your old school thermostat alert you when your AC or furnace is doing something funny? Can it tell you when your home is so cold that it could cause harm, such as a busted pipe?
It may be a big change at first, especially if you’re most familiar with a traditional thermostat, but that shouldn’t stop you from making the switch.
It only takes one day with a smart thermostat to realize that it will change your life forever.
