There are so many perks to getting a smart thermostat that many people don’t consider.
- Whenever an HVAC technician installs a central air conditioner or new furnace into a home, they always give a pitch about a smart thermostat.
While many HVAC technicians and customers see this pitch as just a way the HVAC technician can make more money, there are actual great things that come with purchasing a smart thermostat. First, smart thermostats and advanced thermostats are able to connect to wifi and to your cellular device. This means that no matter where you are in the country, you can use your phone to turn your central air conditioner or furnace on or off. This is especially great when a family leaves for a week of vacation, and the dad realizes that he left the furnace running. Instead of turning around or asking a friend to go to his house to turn off the furnace, he can do it himself with his phone and smart thermostat. These thermostats are also able to connect to your home security system and tell you if there is a breach, a problem, or other things. Smart thermostats are also able to connect to your smoke detectors and tell you if there is a strange or dangerous substance in the air. Many HVAC technicians also will recommend a smart thermostat be connected to an a/c unit or furnace because they can screen the air that goes through your HVAC units and tell you if there are high amounts of pollution or not which is a great help for those with allergies.
