Summers in Birmingham, Alabama, can be brutal. Between the heat and the humidity, you will no doubt be looking for easier ways to stay cool. The good news is, there are a number of smart thermostats on the market that can help. Smart thermostats are easy to install and can save you a lot of money on your energy bill.
What Is a Smart Thermostat?
A smart thermostat is different from a regular thermostat or even a programmable thermostat. Most smart thermostats actually learn from your behaviors, automatically adjusting when you enter or leave the home. They also allow you to control the climate in your home and see energy consumption from your smartphone, making them excellent at helping you to conserve energy.
Why Do I Need a Smart Thermostat?
If your family is like most, a lot of time will be spent away from your home this summer, whether on vacations or daytime excursions. Installing a smart thermostat means that you will never again forget to adjust your thermostat before you go away and that you can return home to a comfortable temperature in your home, all while saving time and money.
Do I Still Need Regular AC Maintenance?
Installing a smart thermostat in your home is only part of the solution for keeping your home comfortable for you and your family all summer long. You also need regular AC maintenance including duct cleaning to make sure that your HVAC unit is performing efficiently and keeping the air in your home safe to breathe. Skipping AC maintenance can mean that your AC unit is working too hard and will shorten the life of the unit, even with a great smart thermostat.
Beat the summer heat and make your home comfortable with an easy-to-install smart thermostat, and you’ll save money while out relaxing and enjoying the rays. Make this simple change and let One Source Heating and Air take care of your air conditioning needs, so that you can have the carefree summer you deserve.
