Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Montoursville

September 23, 2015

Smart phones are our constant companions, whether it’s checking in on work or checking in on friends. Your personal smart phone can also keep you connected to your home. You can use it to control your home’s temperature and find out when it’s time to schedule air conditioner service.

It can be difficult to keep up with technology, but currently there are two types of advanced thermostats:

  1. Connected. Connected thermostats let you control your system over a Wi-Fi connection, so that means you can use your smart phone from work or even vacation to manage your thermostat.
  2. Smart Thermostats. Smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capabilities, but they can also learn your schedule by knowing where you are. This type of thermostat can actually sense when you’re away from home and change the temperature accordingly.

You may have heard a lot about smart thermostats recently. As with most new technology, they’ll continue to evolve and become more popular and affordable. If you don’t have one, it’s never a bad time to start researching them and all the benefits they offer you, namely the ability to closely control the comfort of your home—even when you’re away from home. Here are some other benefits you’ll enjoy:

  • Easy adjustments. As they learn your preferences, smart thermostats will automatically make adjustments that will keep you comfortable when you’re home and save you money in the process.
  • Helpful reminders. In our busy lives, it can be hard to remember to schedule HVAC maintenance. Your smart thermostat can remind you to change your HVAC filter and let you know when you need to schedule routine maintenance.
  • Convenient compatibility. The majority of smart thermostats easily integrate with a wide variety of heating and cooling equipment, so a lot of models are probably compatible with your equipment.

Smart thermostats can help you maximize your home comfort levels and help you lower your energy bills. Call Airmen HVAC Service in Montoursville at 570-322-3131. We have several thermostats for you to choose from, so you can be sure you’ll find one to match your needs.
