The Buzz About Smart Thermostats

Alpharetta GA HVAC CompanyGiven all of the “smart” technologies out there, it only makes sense that a thermostat would also be “smart,” right? Yet, is a smart thermostat a betterthermostat? What’s all the buzz about?

First, it’s important to understand what a smart thermostat can do for you. In a feature article, Lifehacker explains what makes a smart thermostat “smart.” Consider the following:

  • A smart thermostat has the ability to learn from a homeowner’s behaviors
  • A smart thermostat allows homeowners to control the climate of their home remotely
  • A smart thermostat shows energy-consumption in real time
  • A smart thermostat self-adjusts based on the changing conditions in a home such as humidity

What’s more is that homeowners can tell their smart thermostat to turn off after leaving the house, only to instruct the thermostat to turn back on a little later in the day. Consequently, homeowners return to a home that is comfortable, while saving energy in the process.

Perhaps you’re wondering how to instruct or manage a smart thermostat. Like other technologies, most are controlled through a phone or web app. In turn, if you’re concerned with saving energy, a smart thermostat will provide immediate feedback on the amount of energy you’re using and how much you’re spending through a remote interface.

With this information in mind, suppose you’re wondering about the types of smart thermostats out there. While there are two main types, there are different models and varieties. In essence, one type adjusts based on the learned behaviors of the homeowners, eliminating the need for programming. This means that if someone turns on the oven, heating the kitchen and surrounding areas, the thermostat will adjust automatically to cool the area. The second type provides owners with the option of adjusting “on-the-go,” with Internet connectivity and mobile programming.

I have recommended this company to everyone. They have a very professional staff, that are timely as well as respectful of your time and your home. Prices are very reasonable and the quality and service are amazing.

Robert Brant

They came out right away and properly fixed my AC problem a month after the original AC company came out. Very professional and honest. They could have charged me double (which is what the original company did) and I would not have questioned it and would have gladly paid it. THANKS!

I generally don't post but will make an exception. ClimateSmith is the best HVAC contractor I've used in the 20+ years I've been in Atlanta. They installed a complete heat pump system and ductwork for a very challenging room to cool. Dependable, fair, honest, knowledgeable..highly recommended!
