3 Benefits of Installing a Smart Thermostat This Spring
Smart thermostats learn from the behaviors of a building’s occupants and automatically modify temperatures for better comfort and energy savings. Many monitor humidity, give historical summaries of energy usage over time and can sense outside temperatures to better regulate indoor comfort. With spring in full bloom, you may want to think about improving comfort and lowering cooling costs with a smart thermostat for your West Columbia, SC home.

Precision Temperature Control
Smart devices more accurately regulate temperature. This improves energy efficiency by reducing fluctuations that cause a heating and cooling unit to cycle on too frequently. Some models allow adjustment of temperature room by room in zoned systems. Connected controls also work with other home automation devices such as whole-house ventilators and humidification equipment.
Connected thermostats can be controlled from virtually any location via a smart phone, tablet or internet. No matter where you are, you can change thermostat settings, monitor real-time energy usage and program in new schedules. Some models of Trane connected thermostats monitor the performance of your HVAC unit and report problems directly to your HVAC contractor if you elect to set up this service.
Ease of Use
Many connected thermostats can be operated by a built-in voice control. Several are motion-activated, adjusting temperatures when a room is occupied and setting the temperature back when it is empty. If you leave home, the device knows you are not there and adjusts settings appropriately.
