Benefits of Smart Thermostats

When it comes to energy efficiency and comfort for your home, your thermostat can have a surprising impact on your monthly costs. If your home is still equipped with a manual thermostat or programmable thermostat, you have likely considered upgrading to a smart thermostat. While these units can be somewhat costly, they offer many benefits that make them well worth the price. As a leading provider of residential HVAC services, the team at Primo Heat knows how beneficial the right thermostat can be for every living space. That’s why we’ve outlined the benefits of smart thermostats to show why they’re well worth the investment for nearly every home.

3 Reasons to Install a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats offer the following benefits for homes of all sizes and layouts:

1. Reduced Energy Costs

Smart thermostats can save you money by reducing the amount of time your HVAC system runs throughout the year. With a smart thermostat, you can automatically set your system to run only while you are home and awake. This means that your system will not run while you are at work or asleep, only running for a few hours out of the day without any additional effort required on your end. Many homeowners set their heat/air conditioning to turn on just before they wake up or just before they come home from work, maintaining comfort while reducing electricity and gas costs over time.

2. Accurate Energy Usage Tracking

A smart wi-fi integrated thermostat allows you to track your energy usage with real-time data. This allows you to make informed decisions about your energy usage and make adjustments as needed based on your current bill projections. Smart thermostats also allow you to create an energy profile for your home that will tell you how your energy usage fluctuates every month, how this may affect your energy costs in the future, and how you can adjust your heating/cooling preferences to reduce costs without compromising the comfort of your living space.

3. Ease of Operation

Most smart thermostats are easy to install so long as you have the right thermostat wiring. Once installed, smart thermostats can easily be operated at the unit or via a phone app. This makes it easy to adjust the temperature as needed, set up a heating/cooling schedule, and check the current temperature in your home from any location, even if you’re not home. By installing a smart thermostat, you never need to worry about leaving the heat on while you’re away at work again as most units will automatically learn when you’re away or asleep, turning the heat or air conditioning down until you need it again.
