Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats give homeowners the ultimate convenience of controlling their thermostats from their smartphones. This is helpful if you leave for vacation and forget to adjust the thermostat. With manual and conventional programmable thermostats you end up heating or cooling an empty house! During the winter, you can also adjust your thermostat remotely before you leave work so your home is warm and comfortable when you walk through the front door.
Installing a new thermostat and adjusting the temperature appropriately can help save as much as 5-10 percent on your annual energy bills. Thermostats can do this in a few different ways. First, programmable and smart thermostats allow you to pre-set the temperature based on the time of day and day of the week. For example, you can set the temperature higher or lower – depending on the season – when you’re at work during the day and set it at a different temperature on the weekend when you’re home.
Smart thermostats can use artificial intelligence to learn your temperature preferences over time and make adjustments accordingly. They can also detect sudden changes in the weather and make energy-efficient adjustments to save you money. One of the most common uses is adjusting settings during the evening. When you are asleep smart thermostats can adjust settings to save money without sacrificing your personal comfort.
Many smart thermostats provide monthly energy reports that show how much energy you’re using and when to help you make cost-effective adjustments. Some smart thermostat models can also alert you when your HVAC system’s air filter needs to be changed and if there are problems with your heating and cooling system. Being alerted quickly to HVAC system issues can help prevent a bigger, more expensive issue from cropping up.
It’s not always easy to know when your thermostat is on the fritz and needs to be replaced. Pay attention to some of these thermostat replacement warning signs:
