If you’re constantly adjusting the thermostat in your Highland Park, Texas, home, you may want to think about upgrading to a smart thermostat. When you add a smart thermostat, you can take advantage of energy savings, reduced costs, and access to your heating and cooling system from anywhere.

Energy Savings

When you’re relying on a programmable thermostat, the energy usage is in your hands. You have to remember to adjust it as the seasons change, as well as when you go out of town or change your schedule. Many of the newer smart thermostats available can track your energy usage and adjust automatically based on your habits. You’ll save energy without even thinking about it.

Reduced Costs

The cost of a smart thermostat will typically pay for itself quickly after installation due to the lower heating and cooling bills in your home. With automatic adjustments, which can be based on the temperature outside, along with more efficient operation, many smart thermostat owners report substantial cost savings. Since heating and cooling accounts for nearly half of the energy costs in your home, it’s well worth considering this addition.

Access to HVAC from Anywhere

Another benefit of a smart thermostat is the ability to adjust it from anywhere via your mobile device. Most smart thermostats have apps that allow you to stay connected. You can also add a smart thermostat as part of your smart home for better automation and control.

If you’ve ever left the air conditioner on when you’ve left for the day, or worse, for the weekend, you can attest to how beneficial this feature will be for reducing energy waste. Simply open up the app from wherever you are, lower or raise the temperature, and enjoy the peace of mind that you aren’t wasting energy or money.

A smart thermostat is a beneficial upgrade that can also help improve the value of your home. Learn more about smart thermostats and talk to a heating and cooling technician about installing one at your home. Call us at Willard Heating & Air Conditioning at 972-395-5139.
