Many people have had programmable thermostats for years, but most don’t take the time to learn how to program them. They also fail to reprogram them when schedules shift or remember to turn them off when they leave town.
With today’s technology, thermostats can now program themselves. This is great news for busy households. Smart thermostats give you all the cost and comfort benefits of a programmable thermostat without any effort from you.
- Learn your schedule by observing your habits.
- Automatically adjust when you are away.
- Are easily controlled using an app on your phone.
- Save energy without costing comfort.
Basically, smart thermostats are designed to do a better job scheduling the heating and cooling of your home than if you did it yourself.
Not always DIY
You can purchase a smart thermostat almost anywhere, but you can’t always install it yourself. Many times, standard HVAC systems do not have C-wire for the power your new thermostat needs. When you call A.B. May to install your smart thermostat, first our technicians will assess your system. Then we add the C-wire if you need it and install the thermostat correctly. Finally, we help your thermostat start programming itself right away.
How to Choose
There are many great thermostats available to customers. Wirecutter published a lengthy review in August 2017, recommending Nest as the best thermostat for most people. The author cited its simplicity, compatibility with other products, and ease of use. We know that every home is different, though, and we can recommend several other thermostats for a variety of situations. Our service advisors listen to you, learn your home’s unique needs, and give you options so you can choose the best setup for your home.
Part of a Smart Home
As more and more parts of your home are connected to technology, you can see the benefits of a smart home grow. These elements can work together to add automaticity and convenience to your life. Many smart thermostats are designed to work with voice-activated personal assistants like the Amazon Echo or Google Home. They can also integrate with other products like entry locks, lights, garage door openers, cameras, doorbells and other appliances. New integrations are possible by regular software updates to your thermostat.
