Essential Things Every Homeowner Needs To Know If They Have or Are Considering Investing in a Smart Thermostat

Smart ThermostatIn the last couple of years, the number of homes that are investing in smart thermostats has grown exponentially. These devices are marketed as being able to save you money on your energy bills, which is becoming ever more important as energy costs have soared. However, although these devices are being installed, the information and education around them remain distinctly lacking.

This article is designed to fill in those information gaps and help to ensure that you get the most out of your smart thermostat or perhaps encourage you to get one if you don’t already.

Once you fully understand how to use your new smart thermostat, you will wonder how you ever lived without it; smart thermostats are genuinely revolutionary. Let’s look at some of the many benefits they deliver.

Come Home To A Warm Home Without Wasting Money

Quantum Heating SystemsFor many people who are out at work during the day, the sensible option is to turn your heating off and set the thermostat to come on at a specific time when you anticipate returning home. However, if you get caught at work, or perhaps more importantly, are likely to get home a little early, a traditional thermostat cannot react to this.

However, with a smart thermostat, you have the option of controlling everything from your smartphone, providing you with the flexibility of being able to turn the heating on or, indeed, off at will. In fact, some of the more advanced smart thermostats can even be programmed to switch on automatically when your phone gets within a specific distance of your home, ensuring that the house is warm when you arrive but that no unnecessary energy is wasted.

Smart Thermostats Are Independent of Your Energy Supplier

Another benefit of smart thermostats is that they are totally independent of your energy supplier, unlike smart meters. This means that you are free to change energy suppliers in search of the best deal without losing the benefits of your smart thermostat.

Safety and Holiday Modes

Another clear benefit of smart thermostats is their safety and holiday modes. These modes can potentially save you thousands of pounds in expense and damage because they can override your settings if the country is suddenly plunged into extremely cold conditions. If you are at work, or worse still, sunning yourself on a beach in the Caribbean, blissfully unaware of the problems at home, your smart thermostat will jump in to save the day. It will turn on the heating system, hopefully preventing the pipies from freezing and causing extensive damage.

As technology evolves, more and more benefits become available. The Nest system, for instance, says that it can learn your heating preferences over a couple of days of normal usage. It will then automatically set your thermostat to the temperature level you like, dependent on whether you are on the property or not – clever stuff.
