In the ever-changing world of technology, everything is becoming smart, including your thermostat.
In previous years, the technology in smart thermostats was changing so quickly, if you bought one, it was probably outdated by the time you installed it. The good news, is that things have finally started to level out. If you haven’t bought one yet, but you’re still on the fence, these are the top 4 reasons you should consider upgrading to a smart thermostat.
The purchase doesn’t have to break the bank
Yes, we’ll admit that in the past, smart thermostats came with a pretty hefty price tag, by my oh my how things have changed. In 2017, both Nest and ecobee released high-quality, cost-friendly options, and both had a MSRP of $169.
When you consider how much money a smart thermostat can help you save on your heating and cooling bills, the investment will quickly pay for itself.
They come with apps (and the apps are pretty cool)
Did you know that some newer smart thermostat models have a voice control option, which means you can adjust the temperature of your thermostat by talking to your Google Home or Amazon Echo? Pretty cool, right?
And, as in the past, you’ll have the ability to tweak your home’s temperature settings from an app on your smart phone—so if you leave for a weekend getaway, but an hour later, you remember you forgot to turn the AC off, you won’t need to worry about your cooling bill breaking the bank.
A growing number of utility companies are giving out rebates to those who upgrade to a smart thermostat.
