Take the Guesswork Out of Air Conditioner Service: Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat in Anchorage

September 23, 2015

It isn’t far off to say that we’re never far from our smartphones. Whether it is email, checking the latest sports scores or thumbing through Twitter, we seem to be as busy as ever. That doesn’t mean that your smartphone can’t be taken advantage of for simple conveniences like knowing when you require air conditioner service though.

Today, there are two types of Wi-Fi thermostats.  

  1. Connected. These mean you can control the system from anywhere via Wi-Fi, so if you leave the house and didn’t remember to turn down the thermostat you can go into an app and alter the temperature setting.
  2. Smart Thermostats. In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, smart thermostats automatically switch the temperature for you based on whether you’re home or away.

Smart thermostats have been mentioned quite a bit in the last few years, and as technology continues to change, they will more than likely become even more common. And why not? They do provide a variety of perks and allow you to have the most control over your home’s temperature and environment.

  • Easy adjustments. Smart thermostats don’t just have a clever name, they know your habits and know when you’re at home and when you’re away so that you can get the greatest savings out there. Smart thermostats make sure that your comfort is always a peak priority, while also working to save you more money.
  • Helpful reminders. Wouldn’t you love to know when it’s time to swap your heating and cooling system’s filter or when it’s time to set up air conditioner service? Smart thermostats can allow you to do so, meaning you can trust your system to tell you when there is an issue or it’s time for service.
  • Convenient compatibility. Most smart thermostats are created for easy integration across many different heating and cooling equipment manufacturers so you can choose the best one for your needs and budget.

Smart thermostats will continue to evolve like most pieces of technology, but they already provide a number of bonuses that can help better your comfort, potentially decrease your energy bills, and even tell you when you need to arrange for air conditioner service. Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services in Anchorage has a number of thermostats to choose from, so if you have any questions about which one is right for you, give us a call at 907-202-9798.
