Smart Thermostats Boost Comfort, Savings in Your Middletown Home

Smart Thermostats Boost Comfort, Savings in Your Middletown HomeAlthough smart thermostats have become quite popular, there are many homeowners who aren’t aware of their existence. These modern marvels provide users with better control over their heating and cooling systems, which improves comfort and saves energy (and money) each month. So if you’ve been searching for a quick and easy way to lower your energy usage, these little devices can be a God send. 

Millions of houses, apartments, and businesses around the world have tossed aside their manual thermostats and replaced them with programmable models. These devices allow you to predetermine when your HVAC system runs on a daily basis.  To understand why these units are so beneficial, here are some of what they offer, depending on the model:

  • Programmable — Just like their predecessors, these devices can be set with the days and times that you would like your heating or cooling system to turn on and off.
  • WiFi connectivity — Smart thermostats can be controlled remotely through an internet connection. Certain models can also be accessed through a smart phone app.
  • Multiple thermostat access — If your home utilizes a zoned system, you can integrate this feature with your programmable thermostat, which will come in handy.
  • Weather monitoring — WiFi capability allows the device to stay connected with weather information, which it can use to automatically make changes to its temperature settings.
  • Energy usage charts — By tracking your energy usage each month, you can take steps to gain better control over it.

Installation of a smart thermostat can be done as a do-it-yourself project or by hiring a trained HVAC technician. Which you choose is up to you, because some models make specific suggestions regarding the proper installation of the device.
