Five Reasons Why You Need a Smart Thermostat

Imagine a sleek, new smart thermostat on a wall in your home. That’s what you do, isn’t it, when you see one on TV, or at a friend’s place? It’s understandable. Modern models have come a long way with features designed to save money and make your life easier. So, let’s take a look at the top five reasons why you need a smart thermostat.

Five Benefits for Better Energy Efficiency

Depending on the make and model of your new thermostat (we’re partial to Honeywell, but more on that later), you’re likely to get these benefits:

  1. Save money. You want lower energy bills, right? Of course you do! With their built-in customizable features, smart thermostats are wiser about providing energy for heating and cooling. Set up schedules and temperature zones that maximize your energy for when you’re home and minimize it when you’re not.
  2. Control with your smartphone. Using an app, you can program or adjust your smart thermostat from anywhere. Set up your comfort zones and schedules, make quick temp changes and get maintenance alerts.
  3. Geofence your comfort. When you set up and cross a geofence boundary, the app uses your smartphone’s location to trigger activity, such as cooling off your home as you approach after work.
  4. Track your stats. Smart thermostats provide energy usage reports, so you can gauge and adjust your energy needs for better efficiency.
  5. Make it easy. No need to squint—smart thermostats use clear touchscreens and sensors with easy-to-read interfaces and large, visible numbers.
