Smart Thermostats from Raleigh Heating & Air

The HVAC industry has seen a lot of innovation in past years, including advances in supporting equipment, such as thermostats. Some of the smart thermostats on the market now have some of the most easy-to-use energy-saving features you can find. Call Raleigh Heating & Air for questions about smart thermostats for your home. Take a moment to review the different styles if you are considering a new thermostat installation or upgrade.

The Benefits of Smart Thermostat Installation

Smart thermostats are the smart choice for Raleigh residents. Consider some of the following amazing benefits of owning a smart thermostat system that you just can’t get with a traditional thermostat:
  • Program your device to enter low-power mode when not in use.
  • Control your home’s heating and cooling remotely through your smartphone.
  • Enable geofencing, a feature that signals when you are on your way home so your smart thermostat can automatically adjust.
  • Enter temperature preferences and establish a schedule that will automatically adjust to energy-saving temperatures when you are asleep or away.
  • Save money annually on your energy bill as your device learns and adjusts to your usage habits.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint by only engaging your heating and cooling system when and how you need it.
  • Leverage the built-in voice control features that are compatible with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
  • Schedule alerts for HVAC maintenance.

Web-Enabled Thermostats

These thermostats can connect directly to your home’s Internet network – wired or wireless – to establish communications from a remote location or a web browser in your home. Some units will even send you email or text message alerts about issues such as maintenance needs or improper temperature maintenance. Smart thermostats are also capable of taking information from websites, such as weather forecasts, so you can set it accordingly with the information it gives you. Weather conditions can also be synced with smart thermostats to get a head start on heating and cooling, even if the current temperature is mild. You also get humidity control benefits from a smart thermostat installation.

Choosing the Right Smart Thermostat for Your Heating and Cooling System

If you’re installing a brand-new heating and air conditioning system, it is easy to request smart thermostat technology. Any time that you want to incorporate new technology into an existing system, you only need to make sure that they are compatible with one another. Call Raleigh Heating & Air to ensure that your existing home comfort system is compatible with the smart thermostats you are considering. We have a wide selection of thermostats that will work efficiently and effectively with many different home comfort systems. Let us help you keep your home comfortable with the benefit of this new technology.

Energy Management with Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are convenient and help improve energy efficiency in your home. They allow you to access software to manage your energy bills, and you can print customized reports showing how your home uses energy, helping you track where your money is going. For centralized control convenience, you can integrate compatible systems, such as whole-house humidifiers, into a one control system. Smart thermostats will automatically switch from heating to cooling modes, eliminating the opportunity for human error, and with compatible systems, you can even control settings from your cell phone. With smart thermostats, you can control the temperatures in different areas of your home individually, or you can program them to switch to the desired temperatures according to the times you are using your heating and AC system. Smart thermostats give you more control over your home comfort systems than ever before. Easy-to-use touchscreens and intuitive control systems make smart thermostats a great choice for any home.
