If you have a busy life and want an easy way to save time and money, consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat is programmable, and you access it remotely via your smartphone. Plus, smart thermostats are environmentally friendly and easy to maintain. Homeowners in San Marcos, Texas, are making the switch from traditional to smart thermostats. Here’s why:

Automatic Temperature Adjustments

Investing in a smart thermostat is an easy way to reduce your energy bill. A thermostat is considered "smart" because it’s programmable. You don’t have to manually adjust the temperature when you get home. A preprogrammed thermostat knows when you’re home and when the house is empty. Smart thermostats learn your daily habits and behaviors, and they’ll adjust accordingly.

Climate Zone Control

Smart thermostats can also create climate zones for individual rooms. For example, if you spend most of your time in the living room or kitchen, you can program the temperature of each room for maximum comfort and avoid heating and cooling the rooms that you use less often. These climate zones help regulate energy use in homes of any size.

Maintenance Reminders

Conventional thermostats may require occasional maintenance. But it’s often impossible to know something’s wrong until the unit stops working. A smart thermostat monitors its own systems. As a result, it’ll let you know if something’s wrong. You won’t even have to schedule a repair because some smart thermostats will automatically alert your preferred HVAC professional of any system errors.

Smartphone Compatibility

Why shouldn’t your thermostat be as smart and easy to use as your phone? Smart thermostats often feature a touchscreen interface that works just like the apps on your smartphone. You can even receive phone alerts when someone manually changes the temperature of a room. A smart thermostat helps ensure you’re always in control of your home, even if you’re on vacation thousands of miles away.
