How to Easily Read Your Digital Thermostat

Upgrading to a smart thermostat can help you easily control your home's temperature. The reason is that a smart thermostat can do things a traditional thermostat can't. A smart thermostat is Wi-Fi connected and can control your home's HVAC systems manually at home or on your mobile device remotely.

Reading Your Thermostat Display is Easy

Your new digital thermostat will have a screen displaying the temperature inside your home and the temperature it is set to. Up-and-down buttons are on the front of the thermostat if you desire to change the temperature settings, schedule a time to heat or cool your home, setting your thermostat to Auto mode, and more.

How Your Smart Thermostat Works

Your smart thermostat is designed to do everything a regular thermostat does, but it also makes it possible for you to use an app on your phone and control it remotely. This makes it easier to optimize energy use while you are home or away at work. It also provides a way for you to keep your home at your personal temperature preference.

Timer Display

A timer is displayed on your smart thermostat. It will enable you to set the temperature for a specific time of day or certain days of the week. You can program your smart thermostat to have your home set at a certain temperature when you are away and when you get home at the end of the day. Having your temperature adjusted also has its benefits as it can help you save money. 

Furnace Reminder

If your furnace is not working properly, your smart thermostat can detect the issue and display a warning. You will also be getting an alert on an app on your phone. Be sure to check your furnace to ensure it is working properly by inspecting your unit or having an HVAC professional inspect the issue.

Energy Summary

This summary provides information on how many hours were used during the month to heat or cool your home. This summary can also be compared to the previous month to help you understand your usage and optimize your thermostat's setting.

Efficiency

A smart thermostat can calculate how efficiently your home retains heat as well as coolness. You will be able to see how temperatures in your house rise or fall when your HVAC system goes off. A smart thermostat maintains temperature by turning a heating or cooling system up or down when necessary. When rooms get to a specific temperature, a system turns off and comes on when the temperature changes.

In Conclusion

A smart thermostat will provide you with important information you want to know. It will alert you when there is a problem with your heating or cooling system. It can inform you when you are away if there is a power or Wi-Fi outage at your home. A smart thermostat will also provide important maintenance alerts and keep your heating and cooling systems operating at peak efficiency.
