Importance of Upgrading Your Thermostat

New features in technology create so much ease and efficiency in our lives, and your home is no exception. Especially with winter and holidays coming up, ease and efficiency are always welcome. This is why upgrading your thermostat to a smart one will bring so many great benefits to your home.

Safer for You and The Environment

Many traditional thermostats have a needle to give us the temperature. What you may not know is that the needle is adjusted by mercury, a dangerous substance that can lead to many health issues. A smart thermostat doesn’t use mercury and is all around eco-friendlier, making them the best solution.

Easier to Use

We have all struggled to try to read the needle, questioning its credibility and then surgically adjusting the setting to where we want it. Newer thermostats use dials, screens, or even phone apps. At night, this becomes especially useful as they have lights to help you see or to avoid fumbling in the dark while you adjust from your app.

Saves You Money

Additionally, smart thermostats are more efficient in many ways. They can learn and adjust the temperature much more efficiently than traditional thermostats. This puts less strain on your HVAC system, extending its life. This also means less energy is being used, saving you money on your electrical bill. They also feature zoning capabilities that can adjust to different areas of your home. Also, with connectivity to your phone, you can turn the thermostat off remotely when you are out of town, or even when you are away for a bit and forgot to do it before leaving the house.

These great features are easily available to you, so there is no reason to be subjected to a traditional thermostat.
