Home Guide: Smart Thermostats
Technology has kept moving at lightning speed in the heating and air industry, and HVAC systems are more efficient than ever before.
These advancements are due in part to introducing smart thermostat technology that provides homeowners with more control of their environment. HVAC repair companies like Lyons Air & Heat recommend considering this cost-effective upgrade to your residence.
Your thermostat is the brain center for controlling temperatures and has dramatically changed through the years. They've transformed from operation by a manual dial, to programmable, to now Smart technology.
Smart Thermostats Conserve Energy
Smart technology is an advancement from a programmable thermostat. Programmable thermostats allow users to set schedules for temperature control based on the household's climate needs. A smart thermostat "learns" about your household's habits, schedule, and preferences. The Smart thermostat uses this information to establish energy-smart temperatures to deliver ideal comfort with less energy use throughout the day.
Packed with user-friendly features, Smart Thermometers can vary widely from model to model. However, all of them provide a similar fundamental user experience.
Wireless Connectivity - Homeowners can access and control the thermostat in their home remotely from their phone, tablet, or app. Theoretically, you never have to touch the thermostat again manually!
System Monitoring - Online portals connected to your Smart Thermostat allow you to see your energy usage information to understand better how the home's energy is getting utilized. Based on this data, you can make informed decisions about ways to lower your consumption.
Air Quality Data - Indoor air quality can be a real concern. Some models of Smart Thermostats can monitor multiple aspects of indoor air quality, including humidity levels. When air is too dry, it can irritate nasal passages resulting in bloody noses, headaches, and sore throat.
If the environment has too much moisture and humidity, this can be uncomfortable and help create an ideal environment for mold.
By monitoring the home for subtle changes in comfort and humidity, homeowners can learn more about potential problems, so they can make any needed adjustments, such as using a humidifier or a dehumidifier and calling for HVAC repair if required.
