Is It Time For a Smart Home Upgrade?

From wi-fi thermostats to the latest in heating and cooling features, having a smart home is well within your reach. Not only do these features save you money and energy, they offer convenience and comfort as well.   

With today’s advancements making it possible to control your home’s systems while away, it’s easier than ever to track and monitor usage via an app. Check out the many benefits of installing smart thermostats in your Michigan home, and why now’s the time to make your home smarter with just a few additions.  

Control Features Remotely

Perhaps the best perk of wi-fi thermostats is the ability to remotely control your heating and cooling features. Leaving work soon and want to jack up the heat so it’ll be warm and toasty for your arrival? Leaving on vacation and forgot to turn down the AC? No problem. Use your phone or tablet to completely control your HVAC system remotely. Not only is this ideal for homeowners, it’s great for property managers who rent to tenants or vacationers.

You can even receive alerts if the interior temperature of the house has gone below or above your pre-set limits.

Save Money and Time

Smart thermostats make it possible to schedule your HVAC system so it runs according to your unique schedule. Why wait till you’re home to make adjustments? Program your heat to lower by 10 degrees when everyone leaves the house in the morning, and then rise back up to comfortable levels just in time for everyone’s arrival in the evening. Did you go to the beach for the day and forget to put on the AC? Switch it on remotely while you’re wrangling your sandy kids into the back seat for the ride home.

If you’re not leaving your heating and cooling systems going all day, you’re saving more money than you think. In fact, says you can save about eight percent on your energy bills, (that’s $50 per year) by adding a smart thermostat.

Track Energy Usage

It’s easy to keep track of energy usage using real-time data with a smart wi-fi thermostat. Make your own energy profile so you can be alerted to changes in energy consumption and learn how you can decrease your costs with even the smallest of adjustments.  

Easy to Use

Smart thermostats these days are super easy to use. Once your HVAC technician has installed it, you can train yourself how to use it via an app relatively quickly. You can also enable movement detectors that sense activity by family members, with your smart thermostat learning over time when to cool the house down or heat it up based on movement patterns. Thus, it can make adjustments within your HVAC schedule in order to account for seasonal changes that go on throughout the year.
