If you saw someone wandering around today with a flip phone, you’d think they must have traveled forward in time from 1999 right? Everyone has a smartphone today, and it’s undeniable that we’re happier because of this. We can look at our bank statements, send emails, and call our friends from the same device at the same time. However, what if we told you that you’d be stuck in the past just like that poor soul with the flip phone, if you don’t have a thermostat that works with a phone app?
You might be thinking to yourself, “What? There are apps that work with my thermostat now?”
Absolutely! Upgrading your thermostat can give it a Wi-Fi connection and give you access to your air conditioner, no matter where you are. Every day when you’re on your way home from work, you can signal to your AC system to turn on and have your home nice and cool by the time you get there. Gone are the days where you have to get up and head to the part of your house where the thermostat is. Everything can be done from the touchpad of your phone.
Still unconvinced? We haven’t even gotten to the money-saving part yet!
Today homeowners are looking for any excuse to cut back on energy use while at the same time not sacrificing their own home comfort. An old thermostat is going to run up energy costs because it’s just a better idea to leave your AC on all day while you’re out of the house, so you can come home to a cool, comfortable environment.
Having more control over your thermostat, day in and day out, will increase your energy savings. Being able to turn your air conditioner on 30 minutes before you get home, as opposed to either leaving it on all day or not using it all, will make the thermostat upgrade worth it.
Advanced Thermal Technology
Newer, more advanced, thermostats that we offer can even begin to recognize your cooling and heating patterns. This can be incredibly advantageous, especially if you enjoy sleeping at a different temperature than you’d like when you’re awake. These patterns are fairly easy for a machine to understand, and you’d be surprised at how well these thermostats can regulate our thermal preferences.
If you’re reading this blog post, chances are you haven’t upgraded your thermostat in an exceptionally long time. That’s okay! It’s a testament to the longevity and usefulness that a thermostat provides. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to keep the same thermostat forever. It’s true that we get attached to our devices and upgrades can seem kind of counterproductive when our current devices work so well- but we hope after reading this information, you’ll be inclined to at least consider an upgrade. If it makes you feel better, saves you money, and lasts for another decade or more, don’t you think it might be worth it?
