I’ve been looking into a smart thermostat for my home. My current thermostat is probably thirty years old. It’s a plastic fixture that serves one purpose and requires manual adjustment. I’m able to set the temperature I want my house and the heating and cooling system responds. The thermostat is not all that precise. In order to conserve energy when the house is unoccupied, I need to adjust the settings accordingly. While this lessens the workload of the furnace and air conditioner, my family then returns to an overheated or chilly house. I quickly raise or lower the temperature on the thermostat and we all ethier sweat or shiver until the air conditioner or furnace can return the home to a comfortable level. It’s a very inconvenient way of handling temperature control. However, the old thermostat was a ten dollar investment and installation was completed in approximately fifteen minutes. Modern thermostats cost upwards of two hundred dollars and should probably by installed by a licensed HVAC professional. I would need the recommendation of a licensed technician to be sure my furnace and air conditioner are compatible with the model I choose. The features offered by modern smart thermostats are downright amazing. After installation, the thermostat will keep track of the adjustments we make during the course of the first week. It will actually learn our schedule and preferences and build an appropriate program. The thermostat will then automatically adjust when we typically get up in the morning, leave the house and return, and head to bed at night. Some of the models offer geofencing which allows the thermostat to track the locations of our smartphones. It knows when we’re heading out or on our way home and manages heating and cooling to conserve energy or provide ideal comfort.
