What are the benefits of a smart home thermostat?

WiFi-enabled thermostats give you complete control over the climate within your home. You can program your home’s heating and cooling settings to change automatically for optimum comfort and energy cost savings.

In addition to programmed temperatures, most wireless thermostats enable remote heating and cooling management via your smartphone, computer, or other internet-connected devices.

Some add even more value by periodically sending you energy-use reports, including alerts when temperatures exceed preset thresholds.

A smart home thermostat can also connect with other devices such as lights, appliances, and security cameras.

The most popular models include voice recognition, which lets users speak commands directly to the device. Some models also feature built-in speakers, allowing users to listen to music while controlling the system. And some let you give voice commands to Amazon Alexa or Google Home for hands-free control of your temperature settings.

Smart thermostats consume up to 25% less energy than conventional units, saving you money on your monthly utility bill and decreasing your home’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Nest, a popular smart thermostat brand, estimates the average savings on air cooling to be 15% and on heating to be 10%–12%. The company claims that most Nest users recover their investment in less than two years.

If you are new to the technology and brand offerings, our Tiger HVAC thermostat professionals can help you. Together, we will identify a wireless thermostat with intelligent features that gives you and your family the temperature control you need – even from your bed or when you are away from home!
