Take Control of Your Home’s Temperature From Anywhere With a Smart Thermostat
Our WiFi-enabled thermostats allow you to manage your home’s temperature from anywhere, helping you save money on your energy bills.
How does your thermostat affect HVAC performance?
We put our HVAC systems through a lot in Chicago, Il. So, it only makes sense that you want to do everything you can to reduce energy consumption and costs.
Well, not just in the coming hot weather, but also in the fall and winter when you switch over to using your heater.
How a thermostat problem affects your HVAC system
The thermostat is the central processing unit (CPU) of your HVAC system. It gives you complete control over the heating and cooling of your house, letting you set exact temperatures and schedules for different times of the day. The HVAC system is not always the source of the problem, but many homeowners have called Eco Temp HVAC for help anyway. All parts are functional, yet the thermostat isn’t regulating the temperature properly.
And naturally, a thermostat problem affects your ability to use the HVAC system. The end result can be just as terrible as having a problem with the HVAC system itself, as it can leave the system worthless or inefficient. We want to help you save money and time, so if you suspect you have thermostat problems or want to consider a thermostat upgrade, please call us immediately.
3 benefits of using a smart thermostat
There’s something thrilling about having the ability to operate your home’s systems and appliances remotely. WiFi-enabled home appliances, ranging from smart blenders to smart ceiling fans, are the next cutting-edge home trend. The possibilities are practically infinite.
#1 Smart thermostats help save money
With a smart thermostat, you can program your HVAC to run less while you’re away for the day with a simple finger swipe. You can also set your smart A/C thermostat to begin cooling your home before your family arrives. These features will allow you to save energy by just cooling your home when needed.
You might be wondering how much money you will save by installing a smart WiFi thermostat. Although different manufacturers claim different degrees of savings, this Google Nest report claims that its smart thermostat will save you 15% on cooling costs and 10% to 12% on heating costs. Customers can save up to 26% on combined heating and cooling costs, according to the Ecobee smart thermostat manufacturers.
#2 Smart thermostats allow you to track energy use
A smart WiFi thermostat lets you track your energy consumption in real time. You may establish a home energy profile with a smart thermostat that tells you how your energy usage has changed over time, how that may impact your energy bills in the future, and how you can adjust your heating and cooling preferences to reduce energy costs even more.
#3 Control your smart thermostat remotely
Forgot to adjust the heat before your vacation? No problem! Installing a smart thermostat allows you to control the thermostat and adjust the temperature of your home remotely, whether you’re at home, on the train, or on vacation.
If you’re leaving early and want your house to be at the optimum temperature when you get home, all you have to do is open your thermostat app and set your cooling and heating plan for the day. If you’re going on vacation, you can adjust your cooling schedule to keep your home warmer while you’re gone. To save money, use the suggested thermostat settings.
