Old fashioned home thermostats are inefficient. They’re mechanical and you need to physically change their setting. Used for both heating and cooling, old fashioned thermostats are fairly easy to replace. For just a few hundred dollars you can greatly increase the heating and cooling efficiency within your home.
The greatest new feature of modern thermostats is the ability to program them. You can program them to decrease heat at night while you’re sleeping, then warm up right before you wake up. They can shut off while you’re away at work and then home back on while you’re driving home. This single feature allows a newer thermostat to pay for itself.
Basic units that only offer programming and lack more advanced features start around $40.
Modern smart thermostats can be controlled by an app on your phone. If you’re home thermostat is on a schedule, but you’re coming home from work early, you can remotely override the schedule and turn your home’s central air on. It’s a great feature that allows you to further manage your home’s heating and cooling. Basic units start around $150.
Some units use algorithms to automatically create the best heating and cooling schedule for your home. They learn by what you do and then create the most efficient schedule. These units are truly set and forget. They handle all the heavy lifting for you.
Higher-end smart thermostats include a speaker and voice control. You can integrate them with other smart home systems, and use your thermostat as a voice control hub.
INTEGRATE WITH OTHER SMART HOME DEVICES
If you have an Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, IFTTT, Samsung SmartThinkgs, Wink, or other smart home device, modern smart thermostats easily integrate into these systems.
