So, what exactly is a smart thermostat?
Smart thermostats learn from your behavior! They allow you to control the temperature in your home or business remotely, show you “real time” energy consumption and even have the ability to adjust themselves to certain conditions like humidity levels. With a smart thermostat, you can adjust the temperature after you leave the premises for the ultimate in conservation and re-adjust it prior to your arrival. So, the temperature will always be just right. Additionally, you can manage your thermostat settings from your smart phone or applicable web application.
Is a smart thermostat right for me?
Smart thermostats are a perfect addition to any home or business but require a decent upfront investment (typically $200- $500). However, if you are planning on staying in your space for a significant period of time they can be a great asset. Additionally, these thermostats are especially helpful for individuals who tend to leave their heater or air conditioner running all day in fear of walking into an uncomfortable space or those who simply forget to adjust their thermostat prior to leaving. They are also an excellent resource for those looking to save money on their gas and electric bill.
