Smart technology has become ingrained in everyday life, from the way we communicate to the way we live and work. Connected devices for the home such as smart thermostats offer comfort, energy savings and convenience. Here are four benefits to installing a smart thermostat in your Rogers, Arkansas, home.
Heating and cooling account for up to half of your monthly energy usage. One of the greatest advantages of installing a smart thermostat is the potential energy savings. With a smart thermostat, you can schedule your HVAC systems to turn off or run less during the day while you’re away. You can also program your system to turn on right before you arrive home, ensuring a comfortable home from the moment you step inside your home.
Smart thermostats also track your home’s energy usage. With this information, you can adjust your temperature preferences to further cut your energy costs.
One of the most sought-after features of smart thermostats is that you can connect to your device via Wi-Fi or data from wherever you are. If you realize that you left your HVAC system on, and you’re at work or on vacation, you can turn it off from any location.
Are you someone who comes and goes from your home frequently and aren’t always on a specific schedule? Most smart thermostats come with geofencing technology. Your thermostat can detect where you are on your phone’s geolocation. If you are out for the day, your smart thermostat can automatically adjust the temperature of your home to save energy. Your smart thermostat picks up when you are on your way home and adjusts the temperature of your home accordingly.
Smart alerts help you to stay informed about the status of your HVAC system. Receive text or email notifications regarding sudden temperature changes, maintenance reminders, or system fault codes.
