Benefits of Programmable Thermostats & Smart HVAC Technology

Benefits of Programmable Thermostats & Smart HVAC Technology

Turning up the heat on a chilly winter night or keeping your home cool on a hot summer day can be a real comfort. But what about the energy bills that roll in monthly as a result? This is where programmable thermostats and smart HVAC technology come in handy.

When installed correctly with your HVAC equipment by skilled Ideal Air technicians, programmable thermostats can help homeowners save money on their monthly bills and make their homes more energy-efficient. Here are some ways smart HVAC technology can do just that.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Smart thermostats are the present and future of energy efficiency for homeowners! It’s simple but effective; they allow you to adjust the temperature in your home remotely, like through an app on your phone, and programmatically. Since you don’t have to constantly fiddle with settings once programmed, you ensure your home stays comfortable while you're in it or away, and it doesn't waste energy.

Additionally, many smart thermostats come with sensors that can detect when windows or doors are left open. Smart thermostats automatically adjust your HVAC system to run less and steady the indoor temperature to compensate.

Cost Savings

This better energy efficiency from your HVAC system leads to cost savings for you. By optimizing your energy usage with programmable thermostats, you can save money on your monthly energy bills.

In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homeowners can save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling costs simply by adjusting their thermostat by a few degrees.

Customizable Scheduling

Life gets busy sometimes, and who can remember to reset the thermostat every time you leave? Or remember to bump it up when you get back home? With so much already on our plates, let a smart thermostat carry that burden.

Programmable thermostats let you set your home's temperature according to a schedule that fits your daily routine. Set reminders to lower temperatures during the day when no one's home or when your family is sleeping. With a smart thermostat, the device will automatically learn your schedule and adjust temperature at the optimal times.

Environmentally Friendly

Efficiency and cost savings aren't the only advantages of smart thermostats. If environmental impacts matter to you, installing one for your HVAC system makes the most sense.

By reducing energy waste, homeowners using a programmable thermostat reduce their carbon footprint. And since smart thermostats come with sensors that detect when no one's at home, they can help save more energy by adjusting the temperature or even shutting off depending on how you programmed it.

Increased Compatibility With Other Home Devices

Smart HVAC technology, in particular, allows seamless integration with other smart home devices. By installing a smart thermostat, you can control your home's cooling and heating from other connected devices, like your phone.

Integration with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant also makes controlling your HVAC system simpler than ever. Essentially, you have no reason not to enjoy your ideal air in your own home!
