If you are looking to upgrade the thermostat in your Henderson, Nevada, home, consider getting a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat allows you to control the temperature of your house, even remotely. Here are four features you should look for when deciding which smart thermostat is right for your home.
Smart thermostats allow you to control your home’s temperature from wherever you are, all with an app you can download on your smartphone. But before you choose a new smart thermostat to take control of your cooling needs, you’ll want to make sure you get one with a control app that’s compatible with the type of phone you use.
Wi-Fi and Device Compatibility
Maybe you have a home control unit like Nexia. You’ll want to make sure the thermostat you purchase is compatible with that device and other appliances such as humidifiers, and that it can easily connect to your in-home Wi-Fi. Your local HVAC expert will be able to guide you to the right smart thermostat models to ensure compatibility.
Energy Use Updates
Smart thermostats monitor your energy use and provide detailed reports so you can see when your home’s fuel consumption is highest. You can then decide on ways to reduce your energy use without compromising comfort. Some smart thermostat models will even provide tips to help you reduce energy consumption.
If you have a zoned system, you can use your smart thermostat to set different temperatures for different rooms. For example, you can avoid cooling the bedrooms during the day when they’re not in use. By only cooling certain spaces in your home when needed, you can save energy and have lower utility bills.
