Why You Need a Smart Thermostat This Summer

If you’re finding it difficult to keep the inside of your Lubbock, TX home cool enough, it may be time to consider a smart thermostat. If you’re on the fence about whether a smart thermostat is right for you, consider the following ways in which this new technology can help you.

Keep Temperature Regulated Wherever You Are

Most smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capabilities, meaning you can remotely control them wherever you are. While a smart thermostat does its best to learn your routine and adjust the temperature accordingly, it isn’t psychic. This means it won’t know when you’re staying late at work or coming home early because you aren’t feeling well.

With just a few taps on your smartphone, you can have your home at the perfect temperature whenever you plan on arriving.

Control Temperatures in Each Room

Do you have rooms you don’t go into as often, such as a spare bedroom or formal dining area? If so, why waste precious energy by cooling them down? A smart thermostat can allow you to pick and choose which parts of the home to cool, meaning you can zone your cooling efforts to save on your utility bill.

See Real-Time Temperature Reports

Smart thermostats are constantly monitoring your home’s temperature, so if they spot an abnormality, they can let you know. For example, perhaps you left a window slightly open, which is letting in hot air. Your smart thermostat will realize that temperatures are rising and send you an alert that something is wrong.

Even better is the ability to see energy reports from your HVAC system. This can help you alter your usage and save even more.
