Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in West Columbia

Smart phones are our constant companions, whether it’s checking in on work or checking in on friends. In addition to keeping you in touch with work and friends, your smart phone can also keep you connected to your home. Your phone can allow you to control your home’s temperature and find out when it’s time to schedule air conditioner service.

Technology can change rapidly, but currently there are two types of advanced thermostats:

  1. Connected. Connected thermostats give you the ability to control your system via a Wi-Fi connection, so you can use your smart phone whether you're at work or on vacation to manage your thermostat.
  2. Smart Thermostats. Smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capabilities, and they can also learn your patterns and routines by knowing where you are. This type of thermostat can actually sense when you’re away from home and adjust the temperature accordingly.

You may have heard a lot about smart thermostats recently. As with most new technology, they’ll continue to evolve and become more accessible and affordable. If you don’t have one, it’s never a bad time to learn more about them and all the benefits they offer you, namely the ability to closely control the comfort of your home—even when you’re away from home. Following are more benefits:

  • Easy adjustments. As they learn your preferences, smart thermostats will make adjustments that will keep you comfortable when you’re home and save you money.
  • Helpful reminders. In our busy lives, it’s sometimes hard to remember to make an appointment for HVAC maintenance. Your smart thermostat can remind you to change your HVAC filter and even tell you when you need to schedule routine maintenance.
  • Convenient compatibility. You will see that most smart thermostats easily integrate with a wide variety of heating and cooling equipment, so a lot of models are probably compatible with your equipment.

Smart thermostats offer many ways to help you maximize your home comfort levels and give you opportunities to lower your energy bills.
