Most of us put very little thought into our home’s thermostat. These simple devices that hang from the hallways of our homes have become more common in that location than a family portrait — and have become so normalized in day-to-day life that we rarely give them any consideration.
In reality, your thermostat gives you an interface to control your HVAC system which is a vital aspect of the modern comfort most of us enjoy. The importance of the thermostat isn’t lost on the HVAC professionals here at Bravo Heating and Air Conditioning, and we want to do everything in our power to ensure that our customers get the most out of every aspect of their system, including their thermostats.
One of the best ways to get the most out of this technology is by taking the next step and upgrading to a smart thermostat. With the potential to save you money, increase the control you have over your system and take the thought out of ideal climate control, you have nothing to lose by considering the upgrade!
A smart thermostat upgrades the typical function of a traditional thermostat with the addition of internet connectivity and AI technology. This addition of technology far increases the control you have over your entire system and has the potential to remove some of the human error associated with having to manually control your home’s climate.
Smart thermostats are typically controlled via a touch screen similar to a smartphone — instead of buttons or switches — and are more modern in nearly every way, function and appearance.
The benefits of upgrading to a smart thermostat far exceed having a more modern-looking device hanging on your hallway wall. When utilized correctly, the technology has the potential to impart several benefits.
One of the main benefits of upgrading is the estimate energy savings homeowners can experience. Most smart thermostats are ENERGY STAR® rated, which means that per government standards, will save homeowners an average of $50 per year.
Internet connectivity may seem excessive for a thermostat — until you have to take an unexpected trip and all of a sudden remember you left the heater running. Smart thermostats, generally through the use of an app, allow homeowners to set the temperature from anywhere, eliminating scenarios where you are accidentally left heating or cooling an empty house.
With the addition of AI technology, smart thermostats can learn from the habits of your home’s occupants and create individually catered temperature schedules that can keep everyone comfortable and your utility bills as low as possible.
Smart thermostats allow homeowners to keep track of their HVAC usage in a way that’s never been possible before. Instead of relying on your utility company for a readout on your usage, most smart thermostats will actively monitor this information and make it easily accessible to the user.
Upgrading to a smart thermostat is one of the most simple steps you can take to make sure you are utilizing your HVAC system to the fullest degree.
