Spring is a Great Time for a Thermostat Upgrade

The spirit of spring is in the air—that means that you’re cleaning house, letting go of things you don’t need anymore, and making room for bigger and better things to come into your life. Even if you’re thinking about your HVAC system, it’s likely that you’re overlooking your thermostat. Your thermostat is actually the first place that you should start. If you want a simple way to greatly overhaul the quality of your home’s air conditioning then looking into switching over to a smart thermostat in Salem, OR.

Everything You Need to Know About Smart Thermostats

So your thermostat has two main jobs:

  1. Monitoring the temperature of your home.
  2. Turning on and off your HVAC system according to changes in temperature, your pre-programmed settings, or manual alterations of the switch or dial system.

You might read all that above and still not really understand the significance of your thermostat. To really understand the importance of a thermostat, you have to think about your HVAC system as an ecosystem. Your thermostat is the center of this ecosystem—it leads the pack. Your thermostat sets everything else in motion. If you’re still using a regular digital thermostat or a manual thermostat, you’re not getting the most from your home’s air conditioning system.

Smart thermostats are the best thing that thermostat technology has to offer. What makes them so “smart” is their ability to learn your heating and cooling habits overtime. Let’s paint a picture: say you’re someone who commonly leaves for work around 7:30 a.m. so you turn off your thermostat shortly before you leave. You arrive home around 5:30 p.m. every day and turn on your thermostat shortly after. A smart thermostat will notice this pattern, anticipate it, and adjust itself to meet your needs.

Why You Should Make the Switch

Sure, a smart thermostat sounds great, but why switch over to this system?

  • You’ll Save Money: Smart thermostats are so smart that they even highlight opportunities for you to save money. You probably know how to work your thermostat well enough but, let’s face it, you probably don’t always know the optimal temperature to set your thermostat on so that you can always save money. You could give this a quick search online, but this information is generic–a thermostat helps guide you in the right direction and works specifically with your home in mind.
  • Experience Superior Convenience: Sometimes you’re rushing out of your house and you forget to turn off your air conditioner. It’s always a bitter realization when you understand that your air conditioner will cool an empty house all day. You’ll never have to worry about this with a smart thermostat because of the remote Wi-Fi capabilities. You can use smartphone, tablet, or computer to turn the system on or off.
