Is It Worth Investing in a Smart Thermostat?
The heat of summer is the best time to efficiently control your HVAC system’s operation. A smart thermostat, or Wi-Fi thermostat, can not only help you stay cool and comfortable, but also help you save money on your electric bill by only running your AC when it’s needed rather than all day when no one is home.
Traditional Thermostat vs. Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat has the ability to actively learn your household’s patterns and adjust how your system cools and heats your home based on that data. This enables you to save on your utility costs by only cooling or heating your home when someone is home, or about to arrive. Traditional programmable thermostats can also control your HVAC system on a schedule, but you are required to determine that schedule and manually input it into the thermostat, then adjust the settings any time your schedule changes. Smart thermostats, like an ecobee3, simplify the programming process by doing most of it automatically.
How Do Smart Thermostats Work?
Smart thermostats connect to your home’s Wi-Fi network and can allow you to adjust settings using your smartphone, computer, or home automation device as well as the thermostat itself. This allows you to conveniently adjust the temperature before you arrive home, or without needing to actually get up and approach the thermostat. Smart thermostats also provide historical usage data that allows you to monitor how often your system runs and the associated energy use. One of the most noteworthy (and convenient) features is your smart thermostat’s ability to learn your habits and make adjustments based on that information. The ecobee3, for example, is able to learn the schedule of when you’re away from your home, as well as your comfort preferences throughout the day, without the need for manual programming.
