We all want to keep our homes cool and comfortable throughout the long, Georgia summer, but the prospect of sky-high energy bills is daunting. Fortunately, there is an easy, affordable way to have the best of both worlds. Replacing your existing thermostat with a smart thermostat will help your house stay cool when you are there but will adjust automatically when you’re not home, helping to keep your cooling costs in check.
What Is A Smart Thermostat?
Long gone are the days when the only option for adjusting the air conditioning temperature for your home meant you had to set your thermostat and manually adjust it each time you wanted to change the temperature. And while programmable thermostats were a definite improvement on the manual kind, they still weren’t perfect and couldn’t adjust for your changing schedule or changing outdoor temperatures. Then came the smart thermostat.
Save Energy & Money With A Smart Thermostat
In the same way that our smart phones can do amazing things, so can smart thermostats. For example, smart thermostats can calculate whether it’s more efficient to adjust the temperature or to turn the system off completely, saving you money in the long run. Some of them can detect when you are home and when you’re not, learn your patterns and preferences, give you a weather report or forecast and even generate reports to show you your energy use over time.
Control Your Home From A Smartphone
Perhaps one of the best features is that your smart thermostat can also be controlled remotely through your smart phone, computer or tablet device, allowing you to override the thermostat and adjust the temperature up or down. You can even remotely shut off the air conditioner completely from wherever you are, whether that’s reclining on the couch in your family room or halfway across the country.
The best part? You do not need to completely overhaul your home’s HVAC system to add a smart thermostat. They can be added to your existing system quickly and easily.
