If you live in Rocky Top, Tennessee, you know how important it is to keep your home temperature comfortable throughout the year. Here are the four most important features you will want to have on your next smart thermostat to manage your indoor air easily and effectively.
Having your smart thermostat connected to Wi-Fi lets you control your HVAC system from anywhere. You’ll be able to conveniently change your home’s temperature on your smartphone or tablet. Furthermore, you can save on your energy bill by turning your AC or heat off when you don’t need it. You’ll never have to wonder if you remembered to turn off the heat when you went to work for the day. And if you did forget, you can fix the problem in a matter of seconds.
The latest smart thermostats don’t wait for you to tell them what temperature you prefer. Instead, they study your home and habits and figure it out for themselves. These thermostats use advanced algorithms to give you what you need before you even realize you need it.
Setting up geofencing with your thermostat allows your HVAC system to automatically turn off when you leave or turn on when you’re almost home. It uses your phone’s GPS to determine if you’re home or away by creating a virtual perimeter around your house.
If your home is on the larger side, a zoning system will change your life. This feature allows you to control the temperature independently in different areas of the house. That way, you don’t waste money warming an empty guest bedroom and your family members can keep their room as cool or warm as they like.
