It’s obvious that a brand-new air conditioner will perform better than an old one that’s been running for many years. But it’s not simply the age that would make a difference. Even when the AC units manufactured 10-15 years ago were brand new, they weren’t as good as what’s being made today. These days, new air conditioners are better than ever because there have been advances in the technology they use to operate.
But it’s not just air conditioners that have changed. The thermostats available today offer amazing benefits. Here are some things you’ll enjoy if you upgrade to a smart thermostat.
Compared to older thermostats, smart thermostats are more precise and accurate, helping you achieve higher levels of comfort. Also, a smart thermostat can track your patterns—when you’re home, what spaces you use in your home at what times—and learn to provide the temperatures you desire exactly when you need them.
2. Energy Savings
The smart thermostat’s ability to determine when you do need a particular temperature means it’s also aware of when you don’t require a space to be at an ideal temperature. It’s much easier to keep the comfort you need while not wasting energy heating or cooling unnecessary rooms or at unnecessary times. This means cutting your energy bills and doing the planet a favor!
If you left your home to go on vacation and remembered when you were at the airport that the air conditioning was still set to your ideal temperature and you’d be paying for a week’s worth of cooling that you didn’t need, what would you do? Unfortunately, with an older thermostat, the answer is that there’s nothing you could do. With a smart thermostat, you can make changes to your programming by using an app on your phone!
If you use a smart home system, your smart thermostat will integrate seamlessly. Feeling overheated while cooking dinner, hands covered in messy food? Simply say, “Hey, Google,” or “Hey, Siri,” or “Alexa,” and turn down the temperature using only your voice.
Smart thermostats track data and provide reports about your HVAC system. This means that you have easy access to everything from reminders to change your air filter or notifications that repair is needed to recommendations about how to reduce your energy use and save even more money.
6. HVAC System Wellness
Those notifications mentioned above can have a significant impact on the overall health of your HVAC system, ensuring that its needs are addressed as promptly as possible, before a tiny concern becomes a full-blown problem. And by cutting down on your usage, you’re not just saving energy, you’re reducing wear and tear on your air conditioner and your heater. This means they’ll last longer, allowing you to postpone replacing those systems.
