The advent of smart wireless thermostats has allowed homeowners to take
greater control of their home’s indoor environment, as well as their
short- and long-term energy expenditures. By upgrading your thermostat,
you can enjoy greater convenience and comfort with lower associated costs,
all without extra effort on your part. Your HVAC technician in Orem can
offer tips and product recommendations to enhance the value of your home
and prolong the functional lifetime of your heating and cooling appliances.
Monitor Your Settings and Energy Usage
A smart thermostat is a valuable tool on the road to lower energy usage
and greater monthly savings. Smart thermostats automatically track factors
such as heating and cooling output, energy consumption, and can even make
suggestions on adjustments that will lower your home’s energy use
in several ways. Using your smart thermostat, you can make small changes
that will increase your comfort without raising the amount of energy needed
to heat and cool your home. In fact, the majority of homeowners are able
to save 10-20% on their monthly energy bills by tracking energy usage
and allowing a smart thermostat to more accurately and effectively control
indoor temperature. Furthermore, when you install a smart thermostat,
you can’t forget to turn the heat or the air conditioning on or
off, which is a major source of HVAC energy consumption.
Control Home Comfort 24/7
A smart thermostat will automatically adjust the temperature and other
comfort factors inside your home, based on your schedule and your preferences,
so you can sit back and enjoy a healthier and more comfortable home environment
without a single thought for your HVAC system. If you prefer, you can
allow your thermostat to completely regulate your home, saving you the
trouble of making adjustments when you leave, return, or go to sleep.
When you do want to make changes, your thermostat is easy to access and
adjust, even if you’re not home—any smart device can be used
to adjust your thermostat’s settings to accommodate for changes
in your schedule or the weather. The ability to easily adjust your thermostat’s
settings means you will enjoy the utmost in control over your home’s
environment, regardless of the temperature outside.
Prolong HVAC System Longevity
One of the major factors affecting HVAC system longevity is use. Both the
amount of use and the type of use your HVAC system undergoes can impact
the number of years a heating or cooling appliance works effectively and
efficiently before it requires replacement. Because
your thermostat is the control center of your HVAC system, it plays a vital role in HVAC
function and efficiency. A smart thermostat can prolong the lifetime of
your HVAC system by regulating your heating and cooling systems more efficiently.
By keeping your home at a more even temperature and reducing HVAC usage
for energy savings, your smart thermostat will also reduce overall strain
on your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump. The thermostat’s
ability to easily regulate a dual heating system will also ensure each
appliance is used more effectively for a longer, more productive lifetime
and fewer overall heating problems if your home employs this type of heating.
