The Benefits of Upgrading to a Smart Thermostat for Your AC System

March 6th, 2023

New technology can feel intimidating. Sometimes, you just want to stick with the tried-and-true for your home rather than upgrade to new systems that come jammed with features that might not add much to your life aside from extra confusion.

We understand you may feel this way about getting a smart thermostat for your house to replace an older model like a standard digital programmable thermostat or even a manual one with dials or sliders. We want to assure you this is a different situation: when you work with us for smart thermostat service in Alpharetta, GA, you’ll have cutting-edge technology that genuinely benefits your home. Best of all, smart technology does most of the work itself—you don’t have much to adapt to or complex systems to learn.

What are the smart thermostat benefits? Here are the major ones to consider:

Greater Energy Savings

The main advantage of having smart technology for your thermostat is that you have a dedicated “brain” that does nothing but consider your home’s temperature needs and how to meet them without waste. A smart thermostat is an efficient machine, always seeking ways to provide home comfort at a lower cost. The thermostat’s programming analyzes the way you cool and heat your house and then uses all the data it has to create programming that maximizes energy use. You can’t do this on your own: you must have a dedicated computer to get such results.

Reports on Energy Savings

You don’t have to trust our word that a smart thermostat can save you money. Or even trust looking at your monthly utility bills. The thermostat will tell you how much you save through the reports and data it provides you. You’ll know where you’re saving money. 

Wi-Fi Connectivity

All smart thermostats come with wireless connectivity so you can control them from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection and device. When you’re away from home, you can tap into your climate control system through a smartphone, tablet, or computer. From there, you can monitor temperatures, turn the AC or heater on and off, or alter the thermostat’s programming. Although the smart thermostat can make great decisions for you, you still have control over it from wherever you are. 

Easy Upgrades

The wireless feature of smart thermostats allows you to upgrade the software and firmware of the unit in the future, much the same way you can have software for your smartphone updated. Your smart thermostat will keep up to date with latest developments and newest data. 


All of these features of a smart thermostat add up to a large overall benefit: convenience. You have less to worry about with your home climate, you don’t have to constantly adjust the thermostat for comfort, and if necessary you can make changes while you’re off on vacation with only a few clicks on your mobile device.
