Smart Thermostats

Coming home to a hot or cold house isn’t pleasant. However, running the AC or furnace all day wastes energy and money. So, how can you solve this problem? Simple, smart thermostats let you program your climate, so you come home to a temperature that’s just right.

However, before you make a final decision, here’s a quick overview of the different types of thermostats and more on smart thermostat installation from the pros at Sheldon’s Heating & Air Conditioning.

What Are the Types of Thermostats?

There are three basic types of thermostats. Whichever one you have now, if you’ve paid for thermostat repairs more than once in the past two years, it may be time for a replacement. Which option will you choose?

Non-Programmable Thermostats

These basic thermostats reliably control the heating and cooling in your home. They come with features like LED and backlit displays and dual power options. However, there are no bells and whistles. So, you can’t change the temperature from your phone or pre-program the HVAC system to accommodate your daily schedule.

Programmable Thermostats

If you want a new thermostat with more options than the ones you grew up with, consider programmable models. You can enter (or “program”) several settings, indicating the day and time to apply them.

Smart Thermostats

Thermostat repair can keep your older model running well past its useful life. However, at some point, you may decide it’s time for an upgrade. With a smart thermostat, you can change the temperature at home from your phone or computer. Convenient Wi-Fi functionality gives you the flexibility to program the device from anywhere inside or outside your home, or from far away. In short, smart thermostats offer greater control and save energy.

What Does a Smart Thermostat Do?

Unlike offline programmable thermostats that require close proximity to change, you monitor and update your smart thermostats via the internet. This brings the following capabilities:

  • Control your home climate through an app.
  • Access sophisticated AI to optimize your heating and AC settings.
  • Tie to your phone’s geolocation so your HVAC system knows when your home.
  • Control humidity precisely.

What Are the Benefits of Smart Thermostats?

You can control your smart thermostat from your phone, computer, or tablet. Some of the benefits of switching to a smart thermostat replacement include:

  • Save energy. By controlling when your system comes on, you’ll use less energy.
  • Save money. These efficient systems monitor the temperature in your home precisely and you can program them to more moderate settings when you’re away.
  • Easy to use. Our experienced pros will show you how to use your smart thermostat and give you tips on how to use it wisely. If you need help with the app, we’ll be happy to give you a walk-through.
  • Set it and forget it. Did you know that smart thermostats can learn? Over time, they begin to predict your schedule and more precisely monitor your home climate.
