What You Need to Know About Smart Thermostats


Without a doubt, the component of your HVAC system that you interact with the most is the thermostat. With the thermostat, you can precisely control the comfort of your Arlington home in a way that also enables you to reduce your house’s energy consumption. It makes sense, then, to make the most of your thermostat by installing a unit that works hard on your behalf. If you’re looking for the very best, you’ll want to consider a smart thermostat. To understand why Texas Air Authorities recommends smart thermostats to our customers, keep reading to see how they work and why they’re so useful.

Distributed Sensors

One key component of many smart thermostats is their distributed temperature sensors. By placing multiple temperature sensors throughout your home, your HVAC system will be able to keep your house comfortable more evenly. Rather than depending on a single temperature sensor in a single room, a smart thermostat can calculate the overall average temperature and deliver warm and cool air where it’s needed most. This ultimately results in energy savings since homeowners are less likely to need supplemental heating and cooling devices to stay comfortable.

Learning Behaviors

Even if your life feels chaotic at times, you probably have more regularity to your routine than you realize. By learning this routine over time, a smart thermostat from Texas Air Authorities can reduce your overall HVAC usage. One key component of a smart thermostat is a motion and proximity sensor. This allows the thermostat to know when you’re home and when you’re away. The thermostat logs this information, and then, after collecting enough information, the thermostat will begin to make changes to the times when your HVAC system turns off and on. All of this happens without any input from you, giving you one less thing to worry about.

Remote Control

Leaving your home’s HVAC system running when you’re away is a major energy-wasting problem. Fortunately, if you have a smart thermostat, you can eliminate this problem for good. That’s because smart thermostats are connected to your home’s Wi-Fi network, allowing you to access most or all of the settings of your thermostat directly from your phone. This means that you can change the temperature at home while you’re at work, out shopping, or just about anywhere else. Of course, this feature is also convenient if you’re sitting on your couch and want to adjust the temperature without walking across the room.

Precise Adjustments

When adjusting the thermostat, it’s important to know exactly the settings you’re changing. This is one major perk of smart thermostats, whose large screens make precise adjustments easy. You’ll never again have to guess the temperature at which you’re setting your thermostat or worry that you’ve set the temperature too low or too high. Plus, making those adjustments is easy, requiring only the turn of a knob or the touch of a screen. Additionally, the large screen allows you to easily see the real-time temperature, both inside and outside, so you can make wise adjustments to your HVAC system.

Quick Changes at Night

Although some other types of thermostats are backlit, they can still be difficult to use in the middle of the night. The high-contrast screen on a smart thermostat, though, makes it easy to see what you’re doing at any time of the day. Plus, most smart thermostats from Texas Air Authorities have multicolor screens, making the mundane task of changing the temperature a little less boring. You may even be able to get your kids involved so that they can learn how to use the HVAC system wisely from an early age. Certain smart thermostats have options to display other content, meaning your smart thermostat can become an easy place to access news, weather, and other information.
