Why You Should Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat This Fall

fall-leavesFall here in Minneapolis means that we’re welcoming cooler temperatures. Now is the perfect time to upgrade your thermostat to a newer system before we temperatures really start to drop. You may not consider your thermostat an integral part of your HVAC system, but it can greatly increase or decrease the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling depending on its efficiency. If you’re looking for a new smart thermostat in Minneapolis, MN, our team at Residential Heating and Air Conditioning is knowledgeable and will help you choose the right system for your home.

Why Make the Switch?

Many homeowners underestimate the importance of their thermostat—they conceptualize it as a mere switch that turns their HVAC system on or off. Your thermostat is much more than this, though, and you can think of your thermostat as the brain of your system. It alerts the other components and sets the system into motion. A better thermostat saves you money because the way it monitors the temperature in your home is much more efficient. A switch from a standard thermostat to a smart thermostat allows you much-needed flexibility and seamless integration into the established rhythms of your life.

So, What Exactly Is a Smart Thermostat?

A smart thermostat is a thermostat that works to anticipate your heating and cooling needs. A smart thermostat develops an understanding of your heating and cooling habits. It learns your patterns and eventually adjusts itself to your preferences.

One of the features of a smart thermostat that many homeowners love is the ability to set the temperature of your home remotely. If you’ve ever left your home and forgotten to set your home’s temperature to a milder, energy saving temperature, or you hate getting out of bed at night to adjust your thermostat then you’ll benefit from a smart thermostat. These systems are incredibly convenient, you can set the temperature from your phone and always arrive home to a house that’s set to the perfect temperature.

You’ll never have to worry about the temperature of your home again. When you’re homebound, you can simply open your phone and set your home to the optimal temperature 20 or 30 minutes ahead of your arrival.
