Everything You Need to Know About Smart Thermostats

Nest-ThermostatYou may expect an HVAC contractor in Cincinnati, OH, to tell you that you need a brand new HVAC system if you are serious about getting the most efficient and effective performance possible from your air conditioner. That is not always the case, though. Sure, there are instances in which a full system replacement may be necessary. However, there are also plenty of instances in which upgrading a single component can be the fix you’re looking for.

This is frequently the case with thermostats. Specifically, for those homeowners still using outdated manual thermostats or very basic digital models. There is a whole world of advanced thermostat technology out there just waiting for you, so what are you waiting for? Using a smart thermostat is a simple but incredibly effective way to start getting more from your HVAC systems. They require professional installation with compatible systems, though, so be sure to work with a member of our team.

I Already Have a Programmable Thermostat, Though

Okay—but that’s not the same thing. Don’t get us wrong. Programmable thermostats are great. They are certainly a lot better than your standard dial or slide manual thermostats. With a programmable model, you can set temperatures easily and accurately, and you can set up heating and cooling programs that make living comfortably more efficient and convenient. A smart thermostat really takes things to the next level, though.

With a smart thermostat, you never have to worry about forgetting to adjust the temperature before you leave the house. Why? Because you can access your thermostat and set it remotely through the use of a smartphone, tablet, or PC. You get all of the programmability that you could want, too, and you can even integrate your smart thermostat into a bigger home automation system if and when you are ready.

Smart thermostats are the clear choice if you are very efficiency minded, too. Not only do you eliminate the need for fiddling with the thermostat thanks to its programmability, and not only can you control it remotely in order to make adjustments on the fly, but some smart thermostats actually learn your heating and cooling preferences. They can sense when the house is empty. They’ll know when you’re coming home. And they can automate your comfort programs to keep everything just the way you like it in the most efficient manner possible!
