Thermostats are a staple of most homes: the control center for your heating and air conditioning systems. They have few moving parts and tend to do their jobs very reliably, which means they’ll often last for decades or more. That provides good value for the money, but it has one important drawback: it misses out of some of the remarkable advancements that have been made with thermostats in the past few years. If yours is more than a decade old, you might want to think about replacing it: not because it’s in danger of wearing out, but because a new thermostat can provide a number of benefits to your home.
One clear example is the use of smart thermostats, which do much more than older digital thermostats could. They can analyze your heating and cooling habits, then make little micro-adjustments to help the system perform more efficiently. As a result, your monthly bills will drop without costing you the comfortable household temperatures you’ve come to expect. It can also help by analyzing local weather conditions and making adjustments to compensate for the changes: saving you money and ensuring maximum efficiency from your heating and air conditioning system
Some thermostats make use of the WiFi signal in your home to provide additional benefits. For instance, many units allow you to control your system from anywhere in the world using an app on your phone. That lets you turn the system on and off, adjust the temperature and set new programming guidelines without having to return home. That can help your system last longer by cutting down on wear and tear, as well as reducing the chances of a more serious breakdown.
