What’s so smart about smart thermostats?

Here’s why these little geniuses really do live up to the hype.

Here’s why these little geniuses really do live up to the hype.

Maybe you’ve heard about smart thermostats like the Google Nest or the Ecobee and wondered what all the fuss was about. After all, your good old programmable thermostat still gets the job done, so why bother with something new?

Smart thermostats, which connect to your home’s internet, are definitely worth considering. Here are a few reasons you should consider an upgrade:

1. They are fast learners

As time goes by, smart thermostats actually learn your temperature preferences and patterns.

This means that these little geniuses figure out when to raise and lower your home’s temperature, and in which rooms, based in your behavior. They know to use less heating and cooling when the house is empty, and more when you’re home. And it’s all automatic. There’s no effort or programming required by you.

Here’s why that’s great: if you’re only running your heat or AC when it’s needed, you’re using a lot less energy to keep your house comfortable. That’s good for your bottom line, and the planet.

2. You can talk to them from anywhere

Because they’re connected to the internet, you can control smart thermostats directly from an app on your phone.

That means you can adjust the temperature without having to get out of bed in the middle of the night. You can also monitor the temperature in your house if you’re away on vacation, or get the house warmed up before you come home.

3. They may increase your home’s value

One study by real estate giant, Coldwell Banker, found that 81% of home buyers would be more likely to purchase a house if smart home technology was already installed.

4. You can get one for free

It’d be a pretty smart move to take advantage of that offer!
