Are Smart Thermostats Worth It For Your Home?

Are smart thermostats new jersey

One of the best and easiest ways to save money and energy is by installing a programmable thermostat in your New Jersey home. In fact, the EPA estimates that you can save up to $180 every year just by installing one and using it effectively.

But what about “Smart Thermostats” – are they worth the time and cost? Let’s take a look.

Thermostat types

Thermostats are the “brain” of your HVAC system; they manage your indoor climate by taking in temperature information from sensors, then sending signals to your heating or cooling equipment to reach your desired level of comfort. With a programmable thermostat, you can use a timer to set the temperature to change at certain times of the day – overnight, for example, or when no one is home.

But smart thermostats take things to another level by “learning” your preferences, and by giving you a means to control your heating and cooling systems remotely. Imagine being able to adjust the A/C from your sofa or car, or avoiding the hassles and hazards of frozen pipes in a second home – all from your cell phone.

Some smart thermostats are so clever that they’ll tell you how long it will take to make the temperature change you’ve requested. Others will take into account household humidity and other conditions so you’ll be as comfortable as possible in any season.

In short, a smart thermostat – installed the pros at Dixon Energy – is a simple and convenient way to manage the climate of your home and save money in the process. They’ll pay for themselves in as little as a year or two, especially if you use your heating and air conditioning equipment a lot (as we’re sure to this year, with everyone at home) – and they’ll give you more control than ever over how you heat and cool your home.
