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

September 23, 2015

It feels like we’re always connected to our smartphones. Whether it is email, checking 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 utilized for simple conveniences like being informed when you require 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 update the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically switch the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or gone.

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

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they understand your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re gone so that you can get the greatest savings out there. Smart thermostats ensure 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 rely on your system to tell you when there is a concern or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are designed for easy integration across a variety of different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can choose the best one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to evolve like most pieces of technology, but they already give you a host of perks that can help better your comfort, potentially decrease your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to schedule air conditioner service.
