The Basics of Smart Thermostats

Any smart, modern thermostat can connect to your home's Wi-Fi signal, giving you remote access to any air conditioning or heating system. As you use them, they can learn your preferences to help schedule the best times to turn the heating on, giving your home the perfect climate.

These types of thermostats have been around for almost two decades now. As such, they are well-trusted in the heating and air conditioning industry.

Greater Control Over Home Heating

With remote access over your thermostat, you can start to have a lot better control over the exact nature of your home's heating patterns. For example, not only can you raise or lower it, but depending on your home, you may be able to set temperature "zones". These can help you with reducing energy usage by only heating locations you use at specific times.

Automated Indoor Climate Changes for Boosted Efficiency

Smart thermostats learn from your behaviour as you use them. They can adjust your home's heating without your input. In others, they may also offer suggestions based on your usage to help with lowering energy bills.

Depending on the device, they can even make changes based on the external temperature or if they detect movement around the home. In total, many can save up to 20% on the cost of your heating bill.

These devices can also offer you details and insights on your energy usage per day, week, or month. You can use these to track heating habits to ensure better use of your home's climate controls.

Smart Features to Help Save Energy

There are many other beneficial options a smart thermostat, such as the Daikin One+, can offer. They include:

  • Detecting when you leave the home to adjust the heating.

  • Monitoring air quality.

  • Offering notifications on your home's climate.

Each boosts your home's climate control by ensuring you do not spend more than you need to on heating and cooling.
