Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Keokuk

September 23, 2015

It feels like we’re always connected to our smartphones. Whether it is email, searching the latest sports scores or perusing Twitter, we seem to be as busy as ever. That doesn’t mean that your smartphone can’t be used for simple conveniences like realizing when you need air conditioner service though.

Today, there are two types of Wi-Fi thermostats.  

  1. Connected. These mean you can control the system from anywhere via Wi-Fi, so if you leave the house and didn’t remember to turn down the thermostat you can go into an app and change the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically alter the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or not.

Smart thermostats have been discussed quite a bit in the last few years, and as technology continues to change, they will surely become even more common. And why not? They do provide a number of perks and allow you to have the greatest control over your home’s temperature and environment.

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they know your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re not so that you can get the best savings out there. Smart thermostats make certain that your comfort is always a high priority, while also working to save you more money.
  • Helpful reminders. Wouldn’t you enjoy knowing when it’s time to swap your heating and cooling system’s filter or when it’s time to schedule air conditioner service? Smart thermostats can allow you to do so, meaning you can count on your system to tell you when there is a concern or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are created for easy integration across a number of different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can go with the ideal one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to develop like most pieces of technology, but they already provide a host of perks that can help improve your comfort, potentially lessen your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to set up air conditioner service.
