The heat of summer will be coming to us before we know it, meaning it’s a great time to change your air filters, clean your vents and ensure your HVAC system is ready for the season ahead. Perhaps you might even consider upgrading your thermostat this summer! Modern smart thermostats come with a hand full of features that could potentially be game-changers for your home. Here’s why you should purchase a smart thermostat!
Saving Yourself Money
The initial investment of a smart thermostat will cost you more than a conventional thermostat. However, the price gap is closing all the time. These days, you can find feature-packed smart thermostats for just around $100! The real savings start once you install the device, however. Google reports that Nest Thermostats can save an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.
Many people are skeptical about smart thermostats because they feel like they aren’t technically savvy enough to justify purchasing one. In truth, smart thermostats are among the easiest thermostats to use that we’ve come across. After the installation process (which we’re more than happy to help you with), all you have to do is use the touch screen and minimal interface on the device itself. If that is too daunting, you could opt to control the device with your smartphone instead. Are you struggling there, too? You can even use your smart assistants to control your smart thermostat with your voice alone!
Keeping Yourself in the Know
If your HVAC system starts to malfunction, you should be made aware of it the moment it happens, not when you open your door and are greeted with a hot living room on a warm summer day. A smart thermostat will send a push notification right to your phone if anything out of the ordinary is detected within your HVAC system. Additionally, if you want a detailed look at all of your usage any given day, week or month, a smart thermostat can provide that data at just a moment’s notice.
