Buying a programmable or smart thermostat can be a great decision. By automating the cooling and heating of your home, both you and your home are benefiting. Here are the main benefits of how an automated thermostat can help you:
Lower Energy Bills
An automated thermostat can save you a significant amount of money on your monthly energy bills. You can program your thermostat so that your home isn’t heated or cooled as much when you’re away or asleep. Every degree of adjustment saves you about 2% on your energy bills.
Reduce Wear and Tear on Your HVAC System
The more you use your heating and cooling system, the less efficient and more worn it becomes. Automated thermostats reduce the amount your HVAC system wears down over time. They also help reduce the workload of your system, which increases its efficiency.
An automated thermostat can maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home, so you can say goodbye to hot and cold spots. Temperature sensors placed in different rooms of your home communicate with the thermostat so that it can adjust for even temperature control.
Less Time Adjusting
With a manual thermostat, you need to regularly adjust the temperature throughout the day. This includes when you get up, leave for work, arrive home and go to bed. An automated thermostat is much more convenient as it eliminates these steps for you.
Keep an Eye on Your Home
With an automated thermostat, you can control it from anywhere using a desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. You can see if your home is being heated or cooled and what the temperature is set to so that you don’t have to wait for it to heat up or cool down upon entering the house.
