Despite what you may think, the thermostat in your home is so much more than just a simple “on-off” switch. Without a thermostat to signal your air conditioner and furnace to cycle on or off based on the temperature of the room, you’d be pretty uncomfortable in your Acworth area home!
And the best thermostats don’t just switch your heating and cooling system on and off either, they can also inform you of your energy use! At least, this is the case if you invest in a smart thermostat or WiFi thermostat.
If you’re still using an older digital thermostat, or an even older manual slider thermostat, it’s a good idea to consider smart thermostat installation. We provide this service! We want to help you enjoy a more efficient and comfortable summer season, this year and for the years to come. Read on as we uncover the 4 best reasons to have a smart thermostat installed.
Reason #1: You’ll Have More Accurate Temperatures
Smart thermostats provide better temperature reading for your Acworth home. This means that when you need your air conditioner (or heater) to adjust your indoor environment, the end result will be closer to where it’s supposed to be. With older thermostats, you can be off by a few degrees, which means you’ll either not be comfortable, or you’ll be using your HVAC system inefficiently.
Reason #2: You’ll See Your Energy Use
Depending on the type of smart thermostat you invest in, you may be able to get a report of your energy use patterns. This is super helpful in giving you a realistic idea of how to use less energy and keep your utility costs down. Plus, this can help you pick up on when something may be amiss with your air conditioner so you can get it fixed, fast.
Reason #3: You’ll Have Programmable Comfort
With a smart thermostat, you can set up programs that are based on your daily habits. This helps you use less energy but without sacrificing your comfort. So, you can set up a program to start cooling the home before you get back from work, and keep things at a higher temperature when nobody is occupying the home.
Reason #4: You’ll Have Remote Control Options
Smart and WiFi thermostats can be controlled from anywhere you have a smart phone or mobile device and an internet connection. This means if you decide you won’t be home until later than you thought and don’t want the air conditioner to cycle on or want to change the temperature, you can make that happen with a quick adjustment on your app.
Trust the Pros for Your Smart Thermostat Installation
When it comes to thermostat installation, homeowners often think that these are very simple devices that they can just put up themselves. You could but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should. The reason for this is because we can make sure your device is calibrated correctly, and located in a spot that will contribute to the best efficiency in your home.
