The Easy Way to Increase HVAC Efficiency: Upgrade the Thermostat

wifi-thermostat-controlled-from-tablet-away-from-homeImproving your energy efficiency whether you’re heating your home in the winter or cooling your home in the summer often proves to be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. Upgrading your thermostat can help improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. If you’re still faithfully using your slide thermostat or a very dated digital thermostat, it’s time for an upgrade. New thermostats fall in line with the rhythm of your life and take convenience into account. If you’re looking for efficient heating or air conditioning in Orem, UT, it’s time to think about this aspect of your system.

Why Upgrade?

You might think that the thermostat is lower on the list of importance in your HVAC system, but you’d be wrong. A better thermostat helps you save money because the thermostat is the component of your HVAC system that starts the entire operation. A thermostat monitors the temperature of your home and triggers the rest of the system when it’s time to heat or cool. With your standard programmable thermostat, you can set times and dates when your thermostat monitors the temperature of your home, but this doesn’t allow for any flexibility. You need a thermostat that works with you rather than one you must work around. This brings us to the type of thermostat you should upgrade to.

Get Smart

Your phone is “smart,” your TV is “smart,” and if you’re smart you’ll upgrade your thermostat to a “smart” system. Smart thermostats are flexible and intuitive.

One of the best features of a smart thermostat is the ability to set the temperature of your thermostat remotely. If you’ve ever left your home and forgotten to set the temperature of your thermostat to an energy-saving temperature, come home earlier or later than you originally intended and walked into a home that wasn’t currently being monitored by your thermostat, or simply wanted to change the settings of your thermostat when you were away, then this system is for you.

You can set the temperature of your system from anywhere in the world that has a WiFi connection. This system helps you save money and energy if you set your thermostat to a cool temperature shortly before you arrive home. Smart thermostats go hand-in-hand with zoned controlled heating and cooling systems in almost all cases. So not only can you adjust the temperature of your home remotely, you can also adjust specific areas of your home. This means that you only have to address problem areas of your house. The specificity that a smart thermostat allows is leagues more efficient than a standard thermostat.
