Smart phones, Smart Cars, and now — smart thermostats! These days, technology just seems to be getting smarter and smarter. But what does that actually mean for your home heating and cooling capabilities? Well, allow us to explain:

How Do Smart Thermostats Work? | Tyler Heating & Air Conditioning | HVAC Service Fairfield County

Manual indoor climate control no more!
With a standard thermostat, you’d have to manually move the temperature setting up and down depending on how you’d like the space to feel. With a smart thermostat, not only can you set different temperatures for different times of the day — ie: when you’re sleeping, or when you’re out of the house for work and air conditioning doesn’t need to be blasting — but you can also rest assured that your system will learn your home heating and cooling habits as well.

What do we mean? Let’s talk more about downloadable apps.
Most, if not all smart thermostats have their own mobile app that can easily be downloaded. From here, you can access your home’s settings from anywhere that you have cellphone service. What’s better, is that some smart thermostats also have a learning feature, meaning that they can detect when you’re home, and sometimes even when you’re approaching home. That way, your house can be perfect temperature upon your arrival. That’s right! No more blasting the heat or A/C the minute you walk in the door. Some are even able to take outdoor weather conditions into account!

As you can see, switching to a smart thermostat is not only more convenient, but can help you cut costs on heating and cooling bills as well. No more cooling down or heating up an empty home!
