Smart thermostats are changing the way we interact with our homes and control our energy consumption. With several models now available for under $200, Mendenhall residents have affordable access to exciting home automation tools that help us be responsible consumers and make our lives a little more convenient.
Remote Control Access
By connecting your smart thermostat to Wi-Fi and a mobile app, you will be able to conveniently adjust temperature settings at any time and from anywhere. This is especially helpful when you forget to turn down the heat before walking out the door or when our weather unexpectedly jumps from pleasant to sultry. Some thermostats are even equipped to automatically switch from a heating source to a cooling source when the temperature hits a target number.
Set Smart Eco Temperatures
You can also keep up with fluctuating temperatures by enabling the device’s energy efficiency features. Simply sit back and let the automated thermostat do all of the work for you. During the first couple of weeks, it analyzes your family’s routines to know when you are home and away. You can still override the programmed controls with manual adjustments and custom schedules, and the system will continue learning from these habits.
A smart thermostat also eliminates the hassle of remembering to perform routine maintenance tasks and keeps a watchful eye on your HVAC system. Some models use the system’s runtime to estimate when the air filter should be swapped out. Others have safety alerts built in that send emails when the thermostat detects loss of cooling, a tripped power breaker or high humidity.
