What Is a Smart Thermostat?

Looking for a way to increase efficiency in home comfort? Try a smart thermostat.

In newer homes, smart thermostats are appearing more than ever. If you want the latest and greatest, not to mention the most efficient model of the thermostat today, you will want a “smart” one. The praise for this device is not unwarranted. However, you may be wondering what a smart thermostat even is. Read on below to find out more.

How It Works

A smart thermostat monitors and controls the temperature of a home just as any other type would. Like the others, a smart one turns on and off the HVAC system depending on the temperature. Unlike regular ones, though, it also connects to your Wifi, which offers you and your bank account many advantages. It is a three-way system of temperature, control, and the internet. Therefore, you can control the temperature of your home via Google Home, Alexa, or another smart device, such as a smartphone. 

Benefits of a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat can save money on energy and offer you convenience in various ways. With a command from your smart device, whether by voice or by touch, you can adjust your home’s temperature however and whenever you want, wherever. This ability adds ways that you can save and use heating or cooling as needed. Some smart thermostats sense the temperature in each room, allowing you to gain comfort only where you are. 

If you are away from the house, no matter how far, your thermostat can send you a message when something goes wrong. It can be as simple as a dirty filter that needs changing. If an appliance, such as a sump pump, has failed, the thermostat will notify you directly through your smartphone. All you need is an internet connection. At Ground Loop, their team can remotely troubleshoot any issues and know how to solve the problem before he services your appliance.

Besides the above benefits, a smart thermostat can also give you daily and monthly reports on your energy bills. You can have access to valuable information on how you are spending so you can find more ways to save.
