What’s So ‘Smart’ About It?

The word ‘smart’ is attached to so many inanimate objects these days that you’d be hard-pressed to find something that isn’t ‘smart.’ But we can assure you that a smart thermostat, also known as a wi-fi thermostat, is indeed quite a smart choice. One of the most amazing benefits of a smart thermostat is its ability to learn your cooling and heating habits. It takes about a week per season, but once a smart thermostat learns how you like to heat and cool your home, it can actually program itself to meet your needs.

Another thing a smart thermostat does that others don’t is tap into your local and regional weather. The thermostat does this so it can change your indoor temperature settings based on the information it has downloaded about your daily weather. You may be wondering, if it’s smart, can I access it remotely? Absolutely! As long as you have the app for your thermostat on your smart device, and access to the internet, you can program, track and check your home’s thermostat from around the corner or from the other side of the world.

Leave Installation to the Experts

Smart thermostats are more complex than a digital or programmable thermostat because they have an interface that allows them to tap into the internet; they also have to be connected directly to your home’s electrical system. As such, it’s best to hire trained experts, like the ones at Design Air, Inc., for any smart thermostat installation.
