Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Mount Hope

September 23, 2015

It seems as though we are ever-connected to our smartphones. Whether it is email, looking for the latest sports scores or thumbing through Twitter, we seem to be as busy as ever. That doesn’t mean that your smartphone can’t be taken advantage of for simple conveniences like realizing when it’s time for air conditioner service though.

Today, there are two types of Wi-Fi thermostats.  

  1. Connected. These mean you can control the system from anywhere via Wi-Fi, so if you leave the house and don’t turn down the thermostat you can go into an app and alter the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically alter the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or not.

Smart thermostats have been discussed quite a bit in the last few years, and as technology continues to change, they will more than likely become even more common. And why not? They do provide a number of perks and allow you to have the greatest control over your home’s temperature and environment.

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they recognize your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re away so that you can get the most savings possible. Smart thermostats make sure that your comfort is always a high priority, while also working to save you more money.
  • Helpful reminders. Wouldn’t you enjoy knowing when it’s time to replace your heating and cooling system’s filter or when it’s time to arrange air conditioner service? Smart thermostats can allow you to do so, meaning you can count on your system to notify you when there is a concern or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are developed for easy integration across a variety of different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can pick the perfect one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to evolve like most pieces of technology, but they already offer a variety of perks that can help better your comfort, potentially decrease your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to set up air conditioner service.
