Not Your Grandmother's Thermostat

Smart thermostats are more popular than ever, but what are they and are they really worth it?




Like all things digital, thermostat technology has made leaps and bounds in recent years. The latest models are smart thermostats like the Honeywell Home Touchscreen Wifi Thermostat. These thermostats are accurate, convenient, and can help save you energy and money making them a smart choice for anyone looking to upgrade their home to a smart home.



What Is a Smart Thermostat?


Smart thermostats are like traditional thermostats with one main difference, they connect to your home's WiFi allowing you to manage your smart home comfort from anywhere.


How Does It Work?


Just like a standard thermostat, smart thermostats are hardwired into your HVAC system. They are easy to install and once connected, you can monitor and adjust heating and cooling usage, stay on top of indoor humidity levels, and automatically receive email alerts related to safety, comfort and energy. A feature favorite of Honeywell Home Smart Thermostat is using a smartphone mobile app to adjust the temperature remotely, even if you’re hundreds of miles away.



Plays Well With Others

"Alexa, raise the temperature two degrees"

If you use smart assistants in your home, like Amazon Echo or Google Home, these thermostats can be integrated offering hands-free control. Imagine walking into your home with arms full of groceries only to be greeted by a chilly room. You can use voice commands to ask your smart assistant to raise the temperature.


More Benefits


Perhaps the greatest benefit is saving energy and money. Some claim the thermostat will pay for itself in two years, while others tout up to 23% savings on heating and cooling costs. Of course, how you use it will ultimately determine how much you save.


They’re also user-friendly with easy to use touch screens and controls. Plus, you don't need to sacrifice the look and feel of your smart home with just another digital device. With Honeywell's WiFi 9000 Color Touchscreen Thermostat, you can set the temperature, then set the ambiance by easily changing the display to any color of your choice.


All things considered, we think smart thermostats are a smart choice.
