The first thing most people notice when they switch to a smart thermostat is the cost savings. Because they can automatically adjust the temperature of your home to fit your normal schedule, or can be controlled remotely to keep from over using AC or heat when no one is around to benefit, you can rack up significant savings on your utility bills.

Speaking of control, that’s another great feature. Imagine being able to turn up the heat before you get home to ensure a toasty living space or adjust the air conditioning on the way home from the beach. Many devices even allow for automatic adjustments to be made according to your local weather conditions, so you’re always prepared for whatever comes your way!

Have you ever left for vacation and had a nagging suspicion that you forgot to adjust the heater or air conditioner on the way out? With a smart thermostat, you can check in on your home system from down the block, from the airport, or while you’re touring abroad. You’ll never have to worry about it again. And you can adjust the temperature before you return home so you don’t walk into an uncomfortable house just because you’ve been away for a while.

The environment is an important issue on many people’s minds today, and if we can each do our part to conserve energy and help the planet, we will all surely benefit in the long run. Smart thermostats are a green choice because they help homeowners to have a more efficient home. Many smart thermostats allow you to monitor your energy consumption and can also help you pinpoint peak use times and plan ways to reduce your usage without sacrificing comfort.

Possibly one of the best features of most smart thermostats is that they can learn your preferences and adjust your home to suit your needs. Imagine having a home that is nice and cool in the summer, toasty warm in the winter, and requires little or no input from you to keep a perfect temperature from sunup to sundown, as well as all through the night.

We all know that these days “data is king”. Smart thermostats give you all the data you could possibly want to help you make informed choices on managing the climate of your home. Most have mobile apps that allow you to check in on how much money you’re spending on heating and cooling, whether you’re at home or not. And many even provide reminders to help you keep up with routine maintenance like filter changes and annual cleanings.

Of course, as with any major purchase, it’s often advised to consult a pro to help you make the best choice for your home and family.
