Maximize Your Air Conditioner Efficiency With a Smart Thermostat
Running your home's air conditioner probably has a huge impact on your summer electric bills. You have probably also heard by now that a smart thermostat can save you money on your heating and cooling bills. Perhaps you got one of those nifty programmable thermostat a little while back, and it is already saving you some money. You are probably left wondering - what's the difference between a programmable versus smart thermostat? Why should you switch from one to the other? After all, your air conditioner is already running more efficiently.
There is no doubt that a programmable thermostat is a big improvement over the old brown circle thermostat we all grew up with. With a programmable thermostat, you can set your air conditioner or furnace to run more or less at certain times of the day, and it is usually pretty good at maintaining a steady temperature.
But a smart thermostat takes air conditioner and furnace control to a whole new level. Smart thermostats actually "learn" about your activity and temperature preferences each time you make an adjustment. They can anticipate what indoor temperature you will want before you take any action.
Plus, most smart thermostats can be controlled from your smartphone, no matter where you are in the world. Not sure if you set the smart thermostat to vacation mode before you left for the airport? No worries - just log into the system on your phone and check.
