Do you ever find yourself standing in front of your thermostat trying to figure out how to save money and stay warm (or cool, if you’re geologically blessed this time of year) at the same time? Are you tired of your toaster being more technologically advanced then your heating and cooling system? Most appliances have upgraded into the 21st century while your thermostat is left behind. Owning a fully functioning hi-tech thermostat can help you save money and give you peace of mind that your home is at temperature perfection. Check out our picks for the top thermostats specs in 2019.
This option is one of the best things you can do for your energy bill. Even if you leave home and forget to turn down the air conditioning or heating you can control your thermostat from your phone. Perhaps you even have kids or a roommate that likes their temperature to the extreme, this can keep even the sneakiest of dial-turners from breaking the energy bank.
The future is now and technology is watching. Thermostats now have the capability to learn your heating and cooling habits and schedule the changes themselves. After a few weeks of use, the smart ‘stat will be completely hands free. This truly frees up your mind. No longer will you wake up in the middle of the night, too hot and sweaty. And no longer will you come home from work to a freezing household. Smart thermostats are always WIFI capable, so if any unexpected changes occur in your daily life, the system can be easily altered.
Some thermostats now have the ability to take in information via sensors placed throughout the home. When rooms are unused and motion is low in a house (think, when you’re gone for work) the sensors will send information back to the hub to lower temps. This comes in handy when you live a wildly different schedule week to week. These sensors can also be programmed to be voice activated, allowing you to shout commands to your robot servant whenever you want to chill taken out of the air.
When upgrading your life, look no further than a new thermostat. Many are now equipped with customizable screens, dials, and shapes, to match any home decor. Beyond the beautiful outside, lies deceptively smart insides, capable of making your home the most comfortable and energy efficient it can possibly be.
