Why You Should Consider Upgrading to a Smart Thermostat

If you’ve considered upgrading to a smart thermostat but have misgivings about it being connected to “the internet of things,” Scott’s Heating & Air Conditioning, one of Central Florida’s leading AC companies, has some advice for you.

It should be reassuring to know that not every smart thermostat needs to be connected to the internet, and that smart thermostats run the gamut from highly-intelligent and internet linked to more basic programmable devices. According to Scott, “Even if you have reservations, you should consider upgrading to a smart thermostat because of its money saving ROI.”

While all thermostats monitor and regulate the temperature of your home, a traditional thermostat can only turn your HVAC system on or off, forcing a full-power cool down to reach the desired temperature, and that can be expensive. A smart thermostat can be linked to a multi-stage HVAC unit featuring energy efficient controls, allowing it to regulate the temperature in several rooms.

A basic smart thermostat allows you to program days and times when it should, or should not, adjust the temperature. For instance, you might want to program the thermostat to a higher temperature when you won’t be home during the work week. You can also program a smart thermostat to start cooling you home just before you return. Programming the thermostat saves you money on your monthly utility bill and doesn’t make your HVAC system work harder than it needs to.

If you’re ready to go all in on an internet-based smart thermostat, you’ll be able to remotely monitor and control your home’s temperature. This can be very useful if you’re on vacation and need make adjustments based on the weather at home, or if family members are returning home earlier or later than previously anticipated and the temperature needs to be adjusted accordingly.
You also can opt for a zoned HVAC system with a smart thermostat, which features multiple temperature sensors situated around the home. Such a system will allow your home to remain cool for less as it will work to cool only problem areas rather than the entire house.

  • 5 star review  We had a great experience With this company, starting off with our sales person Daniel, extending to the entire installation crew. I’m sorry that I don’t remember all the names of the technicians who installed our units, but each and every one of them was very courteous, professional, and informative. They did not leave the house until the job is done right, and I did take a long time because we do have an older house. They started the job at about 8:30 in the morning and finished at 10 PM. They cleaned up everything and made sure that there was a full explanation as to how to use the thermostat units and the app so that we could control all of the AC units from our cell phones. They also made sure to follow up after the installation to make sure that we were satisfied with the job. I would certainly recommend Scott’s for AC installation.

  • 5 star review  CLIFF WAS AWESOME!!! After our AC unit wasnt cooling like it used CLIFF came to my home and did a phenomenal job. He was very professional and knowledgable. I work in the service field as well and noticed how clean and organized he kept his tools and material/parts he was removing and replacing. Parts were cleaned to the best of his ability due to it being a 21 year old unit. He did a fantastic job. Would definitely recommend SCOTTS to my neighborhood and google members. Now my house cools off in no time. Thanks again CLIFF and of course the SCOTTS TEAM.
