Technological advancements are changing the way we work, travel and entertain ourselves. They’re also impacting how we consume energy to cool and heat our homes in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. HVAC technology continues to evolve in leaps and bounds, and one of the most sought-after innovations in recent years has been the smart thermostat. If you’re thinking about upgrading to a smart thermostat, consider these four fantastic features the device offers:

Remote Accessibility

The internet has helped connect billions of people around the world to form one global community. And with a smart thermostat, you can use the internet to adjust your home’s temperature from anywhere in the world.

For example, if you leave for a summer vacation and forget to turn up the temperature, you can access your smart thermostat via an app on your smartphone and change it with just a few taps. As a result, you’ll avoid cooling an empty home and high energy bills.

Program Schedules

Smart thermostats get their name for a reason, and they’re smarter than you think. If you’re still getting up to manually adjust your home’s thermostat, it’s time to let a device do the work for you.

With a smart thermostat, you can program schedules so that it automatically adjusts your home’s temperature based on whether you’re awake, away or asleep. As a result, you won’t have to get out of bed or off the couch to adjust it anymore.

Real-Time Alerts

HVAC systems are complex mechanical devices. Unless you have a trained eye, you likely won’t know something is wrong until it’s too late and your unit has broken down.

Smart thermostats have the intelligence to monitor your HVAC system and send real-time diagnostics that help a comfort specialist find out what’s wrong and repair the issue. The sooner you fix it, the less chance it has to develop into a major problem.

Energy Usage Reports

Smart thermostats help you consume less energy without sacrificing a degree of comfort. But to help you understand your energy usage habits even more, a smart thermostat can provide with a detailed report that outlines where and when you’re wasting and saving energy. That way, you can change your habits to save even more every month.
