Top 3 Reasons to Install a Smart Thermostat
The era of smart home technology is now – and HVAC systems are riding the wave of innovation. Modern HVAC systems can integrate with smart thermostats and other smart home technology, empowering you to control heating, cooling, and humidity at home – even when you’re not there!
What Is a Smart Thermostat?
Smart home technology lets homeowners control and monitor certain aspects of their home at the touch of a button. Forgot to turn your lights off? There’s an app for that. Didn’t lock the front door? There’s an app for that too.
Smart thermostats integrate with your smart home ecosystem, so you can control temperature, humidity, and keep costs down – no matter where you are. A smart thermostat does the thinking so you don’t have to. You can set your routine once and your smart thermostat will learn the schedule – turning itself off when nobody is home, and on just before you get home from work.
Take the Evolution Connex Control, for example. If you want to make a room slightly warmer or cooler, you can do just that – and you won’t even have to get up to do it. You can even activate voice control thanks to Amazon Alexa.
A smart thermostat really can revolutionize how you control the temperature in your home while doing things you didn’t even know you wanted it to!
Why You Need a Smart Thermostat
If you love technology, a smart thermostat is a no-brainer. But, even if you don’t, the upgrade makes perfect sense, and here’s why.
A Smart Thermostat Can Save You Money
Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons to switch to a smart thermostat is the energy savings. A smart thermostat enables you to set a schedule for your AC. If your schedule changes, you’re able to easily adjust the routine to serve you.
With temperature monitoring and control at your fingertips, you’ll be able to cut down on energy costs – saving you from spending extra on your electric bill each month.
The Bryant ® ecobee Smart Thermostat Pro with voice control has reported savings of up to 23% on heating and cooling costs.
Full Control from Anywhere
Are you the kind of person that leaves the AC on all day, so it’s nice and cool when you get home? Smart thermostats make that a thing of the past. You can turn the AC off as soon as you leave and either switch it on when you’re close by or set a routine so your AC kicks on just before you get home from work.
Your smart thermostat not only works while you’re at home – but anywhere with an internet connection. You can update your energy profiles at a doctor’s appointment, keep a close eye on your energy use while you’re waiting to pick up your kids from school, and set new routines during droning meetings at work.

Floridians are no strangers to humidity and the damage it can cause. With a smart thermostat, you’ll be able to maintain a balanced humidity profile. Models like the Bryant® Evolution Connex Control can keep indoor humidity levels in check when connected to the right equipment.
Installing a Smart Thermostat
While you might like a good challenge, installing a smart thermostat is not for the faint of heart. Smart thermostats require a WiFi connection, a power supply, and specific modifications that make this task more technical than most DIY weekend projects.
