|Are you looking for better ways to effortlessly control your HVAC system while being more energy-efficient at the same time? How does being able to control your heating and cooling system with your voice sound?
This winter, heating accounts for a considerable chunk of your energy consumption. That is why more and more homeowners are looking at getting smart thermostats to save energy and wirelessly make adjustments on their home comfort.
According to Nest, one of the leading smart home companies, smart thermostats lower heating bills by 12 percent. Ecobee, on the other hand, estimates savings to be as much as 23 percent. For this reason, every homeowner must consider upgrading to a smart thermostat, not just to enhance comfort, but also to lower energy usage.
At Rumpca Services, we never stop finding ways to give you innovative means to make your home more comfortable while saving energy. We are a leading heating company in Woodbury, MN that offers a variety of advanced and revolutionary smart thermostats.
What is a Smart Thermostat?
A lot of people are familiar with those old non-programmable thermostats to control their home heating. Programmable thermostats are also available to set heating schedules so you will start heating your rooms at the set times and lower temperatures when you are asleep or away.
Smart thermostats, on the other hand, connect to the internet and allows you to control your home’s temperatures via smartphone apps. They are able to learn algorithms to help you set the most efficient schedules. Advancements in technology allow smart thermostats to use smart assistants such as Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home to control your thermostats and heating schedules just by using your voice.
How Does a Smart Thermostat Work?
Just like a regular thermostat, you need to manually make adjustments for a few days. Then, the smart thermostat will learn your schedule and preferences and ensure the room is set to your comfort level when you get home. Most models have a way of knowing when you are home or away with the use of third-party integrations or geofencing capabilities.
As you keep on using the device, the smart thermostat gets more accurate in learning your heating selections. It can also learn how long it takes to heat up a room based on the outside temperature and historical information from your home. This allows you to maximize your energy savings while you are away or asleep.
Certain smart thermostat models such as the iComfort S30 uses GPS in your smartphone to detect when you’re leaving and automatically makes adjustments to increase system efficiency. When you or a family member gets back home, the iComfort S30 will then set your system to a normal schedule and comfortable temperature.
Another feature of the iComfort S30 is its Allergen Defender that monitors the air quality and pollen levels in your area, based on your ZIP code and automatically turns the fan on to clean your home’s air when outdoor levels are high. Its “Feels Like” feature creates the temperature you want to feel, not just the temperature you set—much like the “Feels Like” temperature in a weather report. So when you set it to 72 F, it feels like 72.
The Honeywell Lyric T6 Pro WiFi thermostat can be controlled with your smartphone or tablet so it knows when you’re coming home and can make sure your home is exactly how you like it when you arrive. Its Geofence technology helps make you comfortable by using your smartphone’s location to know when you’re away and when you return. The Lyric app lets you monitor and control your heating anytime, anywhere, using only your smartphone or tablet. This model works with the latest smart technology including Apple® HomeKit™ and Amazon Echo, allowing you to better control your home comfort.
