What is a smart thermostat?
Smart thermostats work in a similar way to normal thermostats: they control the temperature of your home’s central heating. The main difference with a smart thermostat is that your thermostat connects to the internet and your smartphone/computer. This gives you control over your central heating when you're out of the house.
There's nothing better on a cold winter day than returning to a warm cosy home. With a smart thermostat you can turn your central heating on from your smartphone at any time. Weather warmer than expected? No problem, you can also turn your central heating off.
What are the benefits of smart thermostats?
Not only are smart thermostats a convenient way to control the temperature in your home, they also have other benefits.
Firstly, having a smart thermostat can save you money on your energy bills. While you can set a schedule, they also allow you to switch your heating on only when it's needed. This helps prevent wasted energy.
What's more, some smart thermostats come with additional features. You can choose from models that prevent your pipes from freezing, learn your heating preferences and make automatic adjustments, and even detect if you’ve left a window open.
Will a smart thermostat work with my HVAC system?
While smart thermostats are a great choice, they aren't compatible with every HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system. The best way to check if your system will work well with a smart thermostat is to look online. Most smart thermostat suppliers will have a section on their website that helps you see if your system is compatible.
Do you need a professional to install a smart thermostat?
You don't need a professional to install a smart thermostat but it certainly helps. The installation process can be a little confusing so hiring a professional will save you a few headaches. What’s more, a smart thermostat installer will do the job in a fraction of the time it would take you. Plus, they can guarantee it’s properly set up for optimal performance.
