Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Norton

September 23, 2015

It feels like we’re always connected to our smartphones. Whether it is email, searching the latest sports scores or thumbing through Twitter, we seem to be as busy as ever. That doesn’t mean that your smartphone can’t be utilized for simple conveniences like realizing when it’s time for air conditioner service though.

Today, there are two types of Wi-Fi thermostats.  

  1. Connected. These permit you to control the system from anywhere via Wi-Fi, so if you leave the house and don’t turn down the thermostat you can go into an app and change the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically alter the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or not.

Smart thermostats have been discussed quite a bit in the last few years, and as technology continues to evolve, they will likely become even more common. And why not? They do offer a host of perks and allow you to have the most control over your home’s temperature and environment.

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they understand your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re not so that you can get the greatest savings possible. Smart thermostats ensure that your comfort is always a top priority, while also working to save you more money.
  • Helpful reminders. Wouldn’t you enjoy knowing when it’s time to swap your heating and cooling system’s filter or when it’s time to arrange air conditioner service? Smart thermostats can allow you to do so, meaning you can count on your system to notify you when there is a concern or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are developed for easy integration across a number of different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can choose the best one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to develop like most pieces of technology, but they already give you a number of benefits that can help better your comfort, potentially lower your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to arrange for air conditioner service. HCE Systems Inc in Norton has a number of thermostats to select from, so if you have any questions about which one is right for you, give us a call at 276-302-0076.
