Is A Smart Thermostat Worth It?

There are many areas in our homes that we can invest in or upgrade to improve our daily lives — but how often do you think of your thermostat as one of those areas?

Why switch to a smart thermostat?

Smart thermostats aren’t called smart for no reason. These devices have many features that help you have the freedom to heat or cool your home from outside the house, as well as keep you in the green by saving energy as much as possible.

Benefits of Upgrading Your Thermostat

There are many benefits to switching to a smart thermostat, but these three are our team’s favorites:

Creates a Completely Customized Experience

Anyone who has a manual thermostat currently knows that the extent of the work you can do with it is to adjust the temperature up and down. That’s nothing to sneeze at, but newer models grant your family the power to keep your home comfortable in a range of different scenarios.

Cold in the mornings? Set your heater to automatically kick on at 6 AM! No more dreading the cold floors when you wake up to get ready for work in the morning. Geofencing allows you to also set a smart thermostat to track when your phone enters a certain area — such as the entrance to your street — and kick on the air conditioner, so your home is cool as soon as you come in.

Reduces Energy Consumption

Programming your smart thermostat allows you to take advantage of the “set it and forget it” rule of thermostats. Instead of constantly adjusting the thermostat to meet your home’s many comfort needs, you can set the thermostat to save energy while you’re away and kick on right before you arrive back home.

Freedom to Roam

Smart thermostats with wifi accessibility allow you to adjust your device from anywhere you have a stable internet connection. If a surprise cold snap hits while you’re away, you can turn on the heat at home using a smartphone or tablet to help prevent frozen pipes.

These are only a few of the reasons to invest in a smart thermostat. If you’re ready to make the change, contact Pro Energy Solutions at (800) 704-7340 to speak to a member of our team and explore your options.
