And why you should make that switch
One of the biggest and most common reasons for switching to smart thermostats is the amount energy consumption it reduces. Unlike older programmable thermostats, smart thermostats have the ability to automatically adjust the temperature based on the surroundings, which results in substantial savings on your in-home energy bills. Lastly, it tracks your past energy usage and provides reports for any time period you select. The reports enables you to identify where you can cut costs on future energy bills.
This has got to be our favourite feature from the future that is not only amazing but functional as well.
Smart controls allow you to access your thermostat while you’re away by simply downloading the desired mobile app. You can set your temperature, schedule the heating or turn it off with a simple wifi connection, no matter where you are. These are specially great for when you are away for holiday and realise you forgot to turn it down!
COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER SMART DEVICES
Your smart thermostat can link up and exchange information with a growing number of other home devices. Smart humidifiers and air purifiers, for example, can be controlled with the thermostat if they are on compatible platforms. And what better is that they can all be controlled from a hub on your smart phone app.
For those lazy winter months when you don’t want to leave the cozy couch, these smart controls come with a command technology, Amazon’s Alexa or Google Home can be controlled with your voice. And commands like, “Alexa, lower the temperature to 20 degrees” allow you to make changes on the spot. Be careful though – You might start enjoying this more than the kids!
Smart thermostats allow you to schedule your heating with the use of an app, remotely. If you like your heating low at night or off when at work or higher on weekends – simply schedule them ahead of time so you don’t have to keep track. This also means more efficient use energy.
Smart thermostats are designed to make your life easier and to do the thinking for you. They have very useful features such as maintenance reminders. A smart thermostat has dirty filter detection so it can notify you when it is time to replace your air filter.
Smart controls allow you to customise the heating in different rooms or floors by use of an additional thermostat. Each thermostat can have its own schedule, it’s own habits and temperature control – which can e accessed through the mobile app.
ADAPTS TO YOU
A smart thermostat learns your temperature habits over time and adjusts accordingly, while a programmable thermostat only allows you to schedule temperature changes for specific days and times. For hot and cold natured people alike, a smart thermostat will begin to automatically change your temperature over time as it learns your daily habits and preferences, which will keep extra cash in your pocket. Unfortunately, your existing programmable thermostat doesn’t have the same capabilities and prevents you from making temperature adjustments while you’re away from home.
