What Is a Smart Thermostat?

Smart thermostats are the newest technology on the market. They can be controlled remotely from your phone, so you no longer need to get up to walk to the thermostat to change the temperature. They also will learn your schedule and adjust the temperature in your home accordingly. A smart thermostat is ideal if you want to customize and maximize your home’s comfort levels while improving energy efficiency and costs.

The Advantages of Smart Thermostats

  • Adjust the temperature from your couch or car
  • Easy, fast installation
  • Lower energy costs

At Hopkins Air Conditioning, we respect DIY homeowners. Still, the best DIY homeowners know when to call a professional. Don’t attempt a smart thermostat installation on your own. If there’s a problem with the unit, the company can void your warranty.

Another reason to choose professional installation for your smart thermostat is not all homes are suitable for DIY jobs. If your existing thermostat doesn’t have a C-wire, you could cause HVAC system problems.

We believe programmable thermostats are a valuable upgrade for West Palm Beach homes. You’ll have cool-air comfort in the summer and safe, automatic warmth during nighttime winter cold snaps. Contact Hopkins Air Conditioning or call (561) 656-4870 to learn more.

Standard, Programmable, and Smart Thermostats: What’s the Difference?

A standard thermostat is also called a “manual” thermostat. Manual thermostats have value, but if you’ve ever been involved in a thermostat war at the office, you know exactly what the downside is.

Manual thermostats are:

  • Difficult to remember to adjust, so you’ll spend more money on heating and cooling
  • Less expensive
  • Less accurate
  • Not as energy-efficient
  • Well-made, work well, and last longer

Programmable thermostats are:

  • Automatically/independently adjustable to meet your comfort level
  • Pre-programmable
  • Customizable
  • Energy-efficient (more so than manual, but less than smart)
  • More expensive upfront than manual
  • Not always universal and must be compatible with your HVAC system
  • Only operable when programmed

Smart thermostats:

  • Can be controlled from your smartphone
  • Eliminate human error
  • Are enjoyed by environmentally and technologically savvy homeowners
  • Notify you when it’s time to replace your air filter
  • Provide energy reports
  • Provide run time reports
  • Offer superior temperature control
  • Are Wi-Fi compatible
