Smart Thermostats

Choosing the right smart thermostat for you home can seem like an overwhelming decision – there are a lot of good options out there.

The best smart thermostat will have an impact not only how comfortable you are in your home, but also on your household budget. Heating and cooling your home accounts for nearly half of the average home’s utility bills, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

A programmable thermostat can help reduce those costs by turning your HVAC system on when you anticipate being home, and off when you don’t think you’ll need indoor climate control. A smart thermostat goes far beyond relying on a simple schedule. It will not only enable you to create more sophisticated schedules for every day of the week, and give you complete control over your HVAC system, even when you’re away from home. We continually test and evaluate smart thermostats and can help you find the right one for your home.

The best choice depends on your preferences:

For remote control, scheduling, and integration with other ‘smart home’ devices, we suggest the Trane XL824.

For energy efficiency we recommend the Nest Learning Thermostat.

As always, if you have any questions, give us a call and we are happy to help.
