The Future Of Thermostats
It’s no surprise that thermostats, like almost everything else in the 21st century, have become a lot “smarter” due to technology, and the HVAC field has finally broken through as a “higher-techviewed” industry. Unlike thermostats of the past, today’s units are much more sophisticated, allowing for operators to adjust temperature, humidity, and much more. Some devices can even learn your schedule, accommodate typical temperature preferences, and acknowledge an individual’s proximity or a structure’s occupancy. Wi-fi smart thermostats will define the units of tomorrow. All of these amazing features not only make your life easier, they also can save you energy, and thus save you money in the long-run without impacting your lifestyle. The average household spends about $2,200 a year on energy bills, half of which goes towards heating and cooling unoccupied spaces. With a smart thermostat, this wasted energy is a thing of the past. Smart thermostats can do much more than just control the temperature. There are several to choose from, but here are a few we recommend and install at R.E Robertson Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning. The first is the Côr Thermostat by Carrier. This versatile thermostat is readily compatible with a number of HVAC system types and brands to allow you to upgrade to convenient remote access control and energy saving intelligence. All you need is an Internet connection and you can have complete control over your system from your couch or your favorite beach get-away.
Another smart thermostat we offer is the Nest Learning Thermostat. These thermostats can learn the unique characteristics of each home. It discovers how quickly the indoor temperature adjusts to heating or cooling to reach target temperatures, and can then match itself to your system and automatically program itself based on your energy preferences. The smart thermostat is an excellent addition to any home. It is extremely convenient and makes life a little easier. The days of wasting money on energy consumption and being uncomfortable.
