Installing a smart thermostat offers you several advantages in terms of comfort and convenience. Here are the top four reasons you should consider having one of these useful devices in your Palm Desert, CA, home.
Saves You the Time Spent Scheduling HVAC Usage
Unlike a programmable thermostat, you don’t need to spend time scheduling when you want your heating and cooling system operating. Smart thermostats usually have motion detectors, so they know when people are home and active. They’ll turn your HVAC system off and on automatically, according to your daily schedule.
Minimizes Energy Costs
Smart thermostats save you money on your energy bills. Once they learn your schedule, they can start heating or cooling your home just before you arrive or when you’re about to fall asleep. Having the right system and maintaining it properly can save you 15 to 25% on your heating and cooling costs.
You Can Control Your Smart Thermostat from Anywhere
Smart thermostats can be controlled remotely with a smartphone app. If you’re away on vacation, you can adjust your thermostat, so your home isn’t unnecessarily heated or cooled. You can set limits so that if your home gets too hot or cold, the HVAC system will kick into operation.
Track Energy Usage
Smart thermostats make it quick and easy to track how much energy your HVAC system is using. You can look at energy reports that show how much energy it’s using and when. The reports also show how your energy consumption changes over time, provides tips to save money, and alerts you when the system may need maintenance.
