Smart thermostats are WiFiconnected devices that automatically adjust heating and cooling temperature settings in your home for peak performance. While the features may vary for each device, common features include:

  • Learning the temperatures that you prefer and developing a schedule that automatically adjusts to energy-saving temperatures whether you are asleep, away or at home.
  • Providing energy usage data for your home that you can track and manage.
  • Enabling you to control the temperature of your home remotely through your smartphone.

Since heating and cooling typically account for a significant amount of home energy usage, using a smart thermostat to control temperature adjustments throughout the course of the day can reduce your energy usage and save you money without sacrificing comfort.
