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

People spend a lot of time on their smart phones, whether it’s checking in on work or checking in on friends. Your personal smart phone can also keep you connected to your home. Your phone can allow you to control your home’s temperature and find out when it’s time to schedule air conditioner service.

It can be difficult to keep up with technology, but currently there are two types of advanced thermostats:

  1. Connected. Connected thermostats give you the ability to control your system over a Wi-Fi connection, allowing you to use your smart phone whether you're at work or on vacation to manage your thermostat.
  2. Smart Thermostats. Smart thermostats have Wi-Fi capabilities, but they can also learn your patterns and routines by knowing where you are. A smart thermostat can actually sense when you’re away from home and make adjustments to the temperature accordingly.

You may have heard a lot about smart thermostats lately. As with most new technology, they’ll continue to evolve and become more popular and affordable. If you don’t have one, now is a good time to start researching them and all their benefits, namely the ability to closely control your home’s temperature—even when you’re away from home. Here are some other benefits you’ll enjoy:

  • Easy adjustments. As they learn your preferences, smart thermostats will begin to make adjustments that will keep you comfortable when you’re home and save you money.
  • Helpful reminders. In our busy lives, sometimes it’s hard to remember to schedule HVAC maintenance. Your smart thermostat can remind you to change your HVAC filter and alert you when you need to schedule routine maintenance.
  • Convenient compatibility. You will see that most smart thermostats easily integrate with a wide choice of heating and cooling equipment, so many models are most likely compatible with your equipment.

Smart thermostats can help you maximize your home comfort levels and give you opportunities to lower your energy bills. Call Rescue Heating & Air in Alice at 361-265-4371. We have a great selection of thermostats for you to choose from, so you can be sure you’ll find one to match your needs.
