    The Benefits of Smart Thermostat

    Most experts recommend that you replace your thermostat every 10 years or so. This is partly because older thermostats often start having more issues that can prevent them from working correctly. Over time, thermostats can lose their ability to accurately measure the temperature in the home.

    This can lead to the unit signaling your heating or AC to shut off too soon or turn back on before it actually needs to. Thermostats can also have issues where it doesn’t always send the signal for your HVAC to turn on. When this happens, you will often hear it repeatedly make a clicking sound without your furnace or AC starting.

    Upgrading your home with a smart thermostat can allow you to enjoy all of these benefits:
    • More energy efficient HVAC operation
    • Lower monthly energy costs
    • Improved comfort
    • Automatic repair and maintenance alerts sent to your phone

    The other reason is that modern thermostats are more technologically advanced and have more useful features. For instance, many newer models have a pre-cooling (“Early-On”) mode that essentially works to pre-heat or pre-cool the home. Older programmable models will always start heating or cooling at whatever time you program the temperature to change.

    This means your house may not be fully cool or warm when you get up in the morning or get back from work unless you program the temperature to change earlier. Pre-cooling mode will turn your HVAC system on earlier to ensure that the home is already at the desired temperature at the programmed time.

    A smart or Wi-Fi thermostat has even more useful features and gives you the ability to adjust the temperature remotely using your phone, tablet, or other device. This type of unit can learn your normal daily patterns and adjust its programming automatically based on when you wake up, get home from work, and go to bed.

    These units can also monitor the weather forecast and turn the temperature up or down to ensure your home stays comfortable and your HVAC system consumes less energy. Most units will also alert you when you need to replace your air filter or have your system serviced.
