Having a smart thermostat for your HVAC can help you control the temperatures in your home and save you money. Let us know and we can replace your current thermostat for your HVAC system.

Using a thermostat app to control your home heating and air conditioning has options to save you money. If you’ve wondered ‘Can I use my phone as a thermostat?’, the answer is yes! Controlling your thermostat is an easy way to save on energy costs, without having to sacrifice comfort. 

Temperature Scheduling to Save Money

Scheduling is a thermostat app’s bread and butter. In a few quick taps, you can set custom heating and cooling schedules that perfectly suit your lifestyle. With a smart thermostat in every room, you can set schedules for each area of your home individually. 

Thermostat schedules can be set based on 15-minute intervals for every day of the week. You can schedule your thermostat to turn down when you leave for work and turn up before you’re home, so it’s the perfect temperature when you arrive. On the weekends, your morning routine can be scheduled to start later if you want to sleep in. Plus, you can set an overnight schedule for a better night’s sleep (and easy savings)!

If needed, making changes to your schedule is simple. It can be done in the app at any time, from anywhere. If something unexpected happens, you can also override your schedule in the app to make quick thermostat adjustments.

Some thermostat apps even allow you to save your personalized schedules, so they’re always on hand. This helps you easily switch to and from your winter or summer schedule based on the weather. 

Geofencing Option  

Have you heard the term and wondered ‘what is Geofencing’? It sounds high-tech, but Geofencing simply means programming your smart thermostat to make automatic changes based on how close you are to home. 

How does Geofencing work? It works by setting a boundary, or ‘fence’, around your home in a thermostat app and telling your thermostat what to do when you enter or leave the area. If you’re inside the geofence, your smart thermostat adjusts to your at-home preferences. If you’re outside the boundary, your app-controlled thermostat will know and automatically change to away settings to help you save energy. 

Geofencing is especially great for people who have unpredictable schedules. Your smart thermostat app will do all the work for you, so you get to save on your electric bill without even thinking about it. Plus, no more worries about heating or cooling an empty home! 

Remote Access From Anywhere with WIFI

You can fly to the farthest reaches of the world and still stay connected to your home with a thermostat app. With remote control/access, you can monitor and adjust your thermostat temperature from anywhere (as long as you have a WiFi connection). 

This way, you always have control and peace of mind. No more need to worry about forgetting to turn down your thermostat.
