How a Thermostat Upgrade Can Boost Your AC Efficiency

smart-thermostatYou might not realize how important your thermostat is to your HVAC system—many homeowners don’t. But something as small as a thermostat upgrade greatly boosts the efficiency of your HVAC system. The vast majority of homeowners have a digital, programmable thermostat. While this technology is adequate, we now have even better systems available that work with you rather than forcing you to work around them. If you’re looking to increase your HVAC efficiency by upgrading your thermostat in New Braunfels, TX, now is the perfect time to do so.

Why Upgrade?

We find that many homeowners are reluctant to upgrade their thermostat technology because what they currently use seems to serve them adequately. While this may seem like the case, we can assure you that new smart thermostat technology will exceed your expectations. We’ve listed some of the most compelling features below.

Convenience

One of the best features of a smart thermostat is the remote access it provides. You can change or monitor your home’s temperature from anywhere in the world with WiFi when you have a smart thermostat. This feature is convenient on its own but also helpful. If you’ve ever left your home but forgotten to set your home’s thermostat to the optimal energy saving temperature, noticed an unexpected weather change throughout the day and wanted to change your thermostat, or simply just wanted to change home’s temperature while you were away, then a smart thermostat is right for you.

“Smart” Capabilities

You might wonder what makes a smart thermostat so “smart,” it’s their ability to learn your heating and cooling preferences over time. Say you’re someone who likes to start the day off at a mild temperature, stay warm throughout the day, and return to that mild temperature at night while you sleep—your smart thermostat will notice these trends over time. Once it learns how you like to heat and cool your home, it anticipates your needs and can even set the temperature for you if you allow this capability.

Energy Efficiency

The smart capabilities of a smart thermostat are incredibly convenient at face value but they’re also energy efficient. A smart thermostat is designed to save you money. After you install a smart thermostat in your home and allow the thermostat to learn your habits over time, many models offer a functionality that will assess your data highlight opportunities for you to save energy. While you may think you’re doing your best to curtail your energy costs, there’s no better way to save money than to have the system itself measure your energy habits.
