Learning to use your smart thermostat can help keep your Salisbury, Maryland, home comfortable and energy-efficient without taking up a ton of your time. Here are a few ways to get the of your smart thermostat.
Many styles of the smart thermostat can be accessed remotely via built-in Wi-Fi. This allows you to adjust your home’s temperature while you’re away. Is your meeting running late? Postpone your air conditioner’s kick on time. Notice it getting colder outside? Turn up the heat to ensure your home is warm by the time you arrive. These systems are compatible with any type of heating unit you use. Plus, some models allow you to monitor your energy use down to the minute to help you monitor how energy-efficient your system is.
There are two options for scheduling with smart thermostats: you can set up the schedule yourself either through the thermostat or its associated app or allow the thermostat to learn your schedule and adjust accordingly. While setting it up yourself may get the smart thermostat on your schedule sooner, allowing it to learn you and your family’s comings and goings will help create a truly dynamic, personalized schedule.
Many homeowners aren’t sure when they need to get their HVAC system checked out or forget when to change the filters. Well not anymore. Because smart thermostats can remind you when you need air system maintenance, alert you to issues with your system, and remind you to change out your filter. Not only can this help keep you on top of your maintenance, but also keep you aware of knowing issues before they become serious. Thus, saving you both time and money.
