Looking for a way to make keeping your Bunn, North Carolina, home a comfortable temperature a whole lot easier? A smart thermostat can put you in control of your HVAC and make controlling it simpler and quicker. Here are some of the ways in which a smart thermostat can make your life easier.
Lower Energy Bills
Your smart thermostat can improve energy use in your home by allowing you to create a program to meet your schedule and by giving you energy reports on your energy usage, along with tips on how to reduce it. Some smart thermostats are equipped with learning capability to make their own energy-saving adjustments.
Remote Control From Your Phone
Another convenient feature of smart thermostats is that they let you control the temperature in your house from wherever you are, using your smartphone or tablet. If you forget to lower the temperature before you leave home, not a problem, you can change it easily. Away on vacation but want to turn up the temperature for part of the day for the comfort of your pets? It’s as simple as touching a few buttons on your screen.
Not only can you control your HVAC system directly from your phone, but you can also really fine-tune your temperature management using a convenient smartphone app. You can create programs for weekdays, weekends, vacations, and certain times of the day.
Working With Other Smart Devices
Most thermostats are designed to work with other smart devices in your home, such as smart humidifiers and air purifiers, to give you complete control over your energy use. Many also now include voice command through compatible home smart devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
Start taking control of your energy usage and make managing the temperature a little easier with a smart thermostat. Not sure which model is best for your home? Call Alford Mechanical at 919-246-5265 and let one of our HVAC pros find and install the perfect one for you.
