In an ideal world, your air conditioner will be able to cool your home without the help of you or your thermostat. Your AC would be able to know exactly what your comfort standards are and meet them. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
Unfortunately, the world is a bit more complicated than that. Machines can’t read our minds (yet) and we’re still finding technical problems to the maximized efficiency and efficacy of our comfort systems. You can try to run your air conditioner efficiently without smart thermostats in Plano, TX—but it won’t work.
Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats are the next generation of advanced comfort technology. They can more easily adapt to our custom temperature patterns and learn what we like and what we dislike. These systems aren’t just convenient, they’re efficient at curbing our energy consumption when it comes to comfort. Keep reading, we’ll get into the details.
What Does a Smart Thermostat Do?
Many homeowners see the term “smart thermostat” and they think to themselves, “I’ve already got one, I don’t need a smart thermostat.” While they might sound similar, there’s absolutely nothing similar about your ancient analog thermostat and a new smart one. Even digital thermostats from ten years ago lag behind the power and efficiency of a smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats are able to be programmed. This means they can learn your cooling habits during the summer and more appropriately signal to your air conditioner to make minor changes that save you money. For example, a smart thermostat can be programmed with the time you go to bed. At this point, it can lower the energy consumption of your AC because you and your family will be asleep! If this continues day after day, you’re bound to see som serious results on your energy bill.
Back in the old days, when returning home after work, we all had to wait while the air conditioner started up. This used to be agonizing, since no matter how hot it was inside, there was no respite until the system worked through a cooling cycle to make your home comfortable. Those days are over!
A Smart thermostat connects to the Wi-Fi connection of your home. This allows you to operate it from your smartphone, no matter if you’re at home or not! So, when you’re venturing home from work on a hot day, signal your air conditioner to start up and you’ll be greeted with comfortable temperatures at your abode!
Easier to Work with
Let’s face it, working with old digital thermostats or ancient analog thermostats is a nightmare. They rarely get the temperature right, they constantly mess up your settings, and they require repairs frequently. Smart thermostats are much more stable and easy to work with. Since they’re programmable and have a long list of settings, they’re easier to work with and repair. If your thermostat is the brain of your HVAC system, think of a smart thermostat as a smarter brain. Take it from us, they’re worth every penny.
