Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Saint Petersburg

September 23, 2015

It seems as though we are ever-connected to our smartphones. Whether it is email, looking for the latest sports scores or perusing Twitter, we seem to be as busy as ever. That doesn’t mean that your smartphone can’t be taken advantage of for simple conveniences like realizing when you require air conditioner service though.

Today, there are two types of Wi-Fi thermostats.  

  1. Connected. These mean you can control the system from anywhere via Wi-Fi, so if you leave the house and don’t turn down the thermostat you can go into an app and change the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically change the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or away.

Smart thermostats have been talked about quite a bit in the last few years, and as technology continues to evolve, they will surely become even more common. And why not? They do offer a host of perks and allow you to have the best control over your home’s temperature and environment.

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they know your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re not so that you can get the greatest savings you can. Smart thermostats make sure that your comfort is always a top priority, while also working to save you more money.
  • Helpful reminders. Wouldn’t you love to know when it’s time to replace your heating and cooling system’s filter or when it’s time to arrange air conditioner service? Smart thermostats can allow you to do so, meaning you can trust your system to inform you when there is a problem or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are designed for easy integration across a number of different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can pick the perfect one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to evolve like most pieces of technology, but they already offer a number of bonuses that can help better your comfort, potentially decrease your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to schedule air conditioner service. Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc in Saint Petersburg has a number of thermostats to pick from, so if you have any questions about which one is right for you, give us a call at 727-369-6195.
