5 Benefits of a Smart Thermostat in Omaha

In homes across the country, smart thermostats are becoming popular additions to HVAC systems. Adding a smart thermostat to your HVAC system is a relatively simple change that can do a lot of good. Not only can they make your home more comfortable, they can also save you plenty of time and money. As a local expert on heating and cooling McCarthy’s can tell you how much good you can gain from a smart thermostat in Omaha.

Here are five benefits offered by a smart thermostat in Omaha:

Highly modifiable

Because a smart thermostat can be set to follow a schedule and maintain a certain number of degrees, there are all sorts of benefits. Just some of them include keeping a steady temperature regardless of weather and spending less time adjusting the temperature. Their touch screens and highly rated companion apps make them easy to work with.

HVAC optimization

Before they install a new HVAC system, our contractors will often give suggestions on what homeowners can try before committing to a large purchase. One suggestion is to try pairing your old HVAC system with a smart thermostat. By scheduling wisely and reducing your HVAC’s workload, you can help get some more mileage out of it. Even if you do wind up getting a new HVAC, your thermostat will still be compatible with the new unit, making it more efficient than it would be with a regular thermostat.

Save on your energy bills

Not counting the initial cost of buying an installing it, smart thermostats can save you a lot of money on energy bills. The thermostat lets you make a temperature schedule around you and your family’s schedules. This lets you tone down the HVAC when no one’s home, saving on energy and bills.

Advanced features

Depending on the model chosen, smart thermostats come with features like wi-fi capability. Others let you control the temperature remotely from your laptop, smartphone, or tablet. Having a thermostat linked to a portable device lets you control your home’s temperature no matter where you are!

Maximize zoned heating and cooling

If you have different zones in the house you heat or cool individually, a smart thermostat can increase your energy efficiency even more. Putting smart controls in each part of your house can help you customize your home’s climate even more.
