Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Shelby

September 23, 2015

It isn’t far off to say that we’re never far from our smartphones. Whether it is email, searching the latest sports scores or perusing Twitter, we seem to be as busy as ever. That doesn’t mean that your smartphone can’t be utilized for simple conveniences like knowing when you require air conditioner service though.

Today, there are two types of Wi-Fi thermostats.  

  1. Connected. These permit you to control the system from anywhere via Wi-Fi, so if you leave the house and forget to turn down the thermostat you can go into an app and change the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically change the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or gone.

Smart thermostats have been discussed quite a bit in the last few years, and as technology continues to evolve, they will likely become even more common. And why not? They do offer a host of perks and allow you to have the most control over your home’s temperature and environment.

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they know your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re away so that you can get the greatest savings out there. Smart thermostats make sure that your comfort is always a top priority, while also working to save you more money.
  • Helpful reminders. Wouldn’t you enjoy knowing when it’s time to change your heating and cooling system’s filter or when it’s time to set up air conditioner service? Smart thermostats can allow you to do so, meaning you can trust your system to tell you when there is an issue or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are designed for easy integration across many different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can pick the perfect one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to evolve like most pieces of technology, but they already offer a number of bonuses that can help better your comfort, potentially decrease your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to arrange for air conditioner service.
