Upgrading to a smart thermostat is a big improvement

The new thermostat has made a huge improvement to everything from comfort to aesthetics

When I began looking into replacing my thermostat, I wasn’t prepared for the number of options. There has been a huge progression in thermostat technology. Today’s smart thermostats simplify temperature control, trim utility costs and make it easier to take better care of the heating and cooling system. They are also a lot more expensive than the plastic dial I originally had in my home. Realizing I was going to be spending several hundred dollars on a thermostat, I wanted to get maximum rewards from the investment. I did quite a bit of research into the most well-known manufacturers and models. There are thermostats with learning capability. For the first week after installation, the device keeps track of every adjustment, learns preferences and schedules and builds a customized program. There are also models with geofencing. The thermostat tracks the location of family members’ smartphones and automatically adjusts to conserve energy in an empty home and welcome occupants back to ideal comfort. Most of the models on the market provide conveniences such as weather forecast, energy tracking and reminders for maintenance. They are all able to be accessed by way of an app on the smartphone. I no longer need to remember to raise or lower the thermostat setting before my family leaves the house in the morning. We don’t return to an overheated or chilly house. If our schedule changes during the day, I can make adjustments from virtually anywhere I happen to be. The new thermostat has made a huge improvement to everything from comfort to aesthetics. I love the look of the touchscreen display and how easy it is to navigate. I’m especially happy about the money I’m saving on heating and cooling costs.
