Reasons To Use a Smart Thermostat

It’s no secret that technology has infiltrated almost every area of our lives. Technology has made our lives easier and more efficient. Smart TVs, phones, and even homes are becoming more and more popular. Smart thermostats are no different. Taking control of your home’s cooling and heating, a smart thermostat can make your home more efficient and save you money on utility bills.

Is a smart thermostat right for you?

We understand that smart technology comes with a learning curve and may not be right for everyone. However, if you can take the time to learn the new technology, there are great benefits with a smart thermostat. Not only can it save you money, it can give you perks such as automating your home AC during the hot Florida summers. Below are some questions you may have about whether smart thermostats are right for you:

  • Do you want to save money on your monthly energy costs?
  • Would you like to have more control over your home’s indoor environment?
  • Are you interested in “going green” and reducing your environmental impact?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then a smart thermostat may be right for you.

Smart thermostats allow your whole air conditioning and heating system to work at top performance while providing you with a comfortable environment that is right for you. We’ve put together a couple of those benefits for you.

Save money

This is the greatest reason to purchase a programmable thermostat. With the amount of features packed into most thermostats today, you can easily adjust your home temperature to fit your schedule. You can create schedules that will change the temperature of your home by the time you arrive from work. You can also see reports of how you are saving money and find ways to pinch every penny.

The average statistic shows that with a smart thermostat you can save 10-12% on heating and 15% on cooling a year. This sums to nearly $150 a year in utility savings.

Precise Control

Some smart thermostats, like the Lennox iComfort S30, not only allow you to control the air temperature, but also let you monitor the allergen and quality of air within your home. With the iComfort you can also control your thermostat from the iComfort app on your phone. Through the app you can adjust the temperature and schedules even when you are not home.

During these economic times, people want to find simple ways to save money. With our current promotions for smart thermostats, you can save even more money. While it may take a little work in the beginning, switching to a smart thermostat can be very beneficial for you and your family. Give us a call about installing one today!


Achieve Perfect Balance This Season

Central AC systems are amongst the most common HVAC systems around. However, in a home where family members have different preferences, traditional central AC may not be the best idea. So, how can we keep everyone comfortable, but still save money on energy bills? Multi-zone systems can provide a solution that will keep everyone comfortable.

Make comfort control easy with Zoning

A zoning system divideds homes into separate “zones” that allow family members to customize the air temperature in their zone. This way the environment for each member stay exactly how they like it without the need to constantly be changing a single central ac thermostat. Zone controls manage dampers within the ductwork of your home’s central ac system. The system constantly measures to check if the temperature of their specific zones are within their allotted range.

Zoning delivers on every level

Have you ever walked into an overly hot room? Or a really cold one? Zoning can help alleviate this problem by warming up cold rooms or cooling hot ones without cooling the rest of your home or building. This allows you to maximize efficiency and reduce energy waste. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, zoning can deliver energy savings of up to 35 percent when used with a programmable thermostat.

The ideal solution for multiple home-comfort issues

A zoning system not only keeps your family members happy and comfortable, it can also be the perfect heating and cooling solution if you have:

  • Large windows, vaulted ceilings and glass-enclosed patio rooms
  • Uneven home temperatures
  • Rooms you seldom use
  • Rooms that feel stuffy and would benefit from constant air movement
  • A room that was added after your heating and cooling system was installed
  • A home office containing heat-producing electronic equipment
  • Noticeable hot or cold spots in your home
  • and if you have rooms that may not be used often.
