Are you trying to save energy in your Highland Park, Illinois, home? Upgrading your thermostat could be the answer. High-tech thermostats are designed to save energy and keep more money in your pocket, especially when coupled with an innovative HVAC system. Here are just a few more reasons to upgrade to a smart thermostat.
Smart thermostats are Wi-Fi enabled, giving you complete control of your home’s temperature settings even when you aren’t home. Use the thermostat app from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection and adjust the settings as needed. This feature comes in handy when one of the kids is sent home sick from school or you’re traveling on vacation and realize you forgot to readjust the thermostat program before you left.
Outdated mercury thermostats use needles to control the temperature, so they’re not as accurate as thermostats currently on the market. If you’re still using an outdated unit, it’s past time for an upgrade. Digital thermostats are the next best option, but if you want state-of-the-art features, consider investing in a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your family’s habits and adjust temperatures automatically, effectively regulating temperatures and maximizing energy efficiency.
Avoid Classic Thermostat Problems
Old-school thermostats were more sensitive when it came to placement. Mounting the thermostat in the wrong spot could result in inaccurate heating and cooling throughout the home. Outdated units can also be difficult to clean, reducing overall performance. Newer smart thermostats are designed to be accurate with less maintenance. Simply having a smart thermostat means you’ll enjoy more consistent temperatures.
Smart thermostats make it easy to zone your home. Zoning allows you to adjust the temperature of certain parts of your home independent from other zones, so you can heat and cool occupied rooms while setting different temperatures in unoccupied spaces.
