In an age where we are all looking to make our homes smarter, a thermostat is a good place to start. Modern thermostats can save you money on energy, keep your home or business at an ideal temperature, connect with the internet for remote control, or even learn your habits and preferences to optimize comfort.
It’s easy. Of all the ways to save money on energy bills, upgrading your thermostat is one of the easiest and least expensive. Without changing out your entire HVAC system, a new thermostat can increase your comfort and stop the constant fiddling with manual settings. It also cuts energy bills an average of 20%.
Is your home too cold one minute and stifling hot the next? As your thermostat ages and wears out, it becomes less and less effective. Gradually, these issues will noticeably affect your comfort level, creating uncomfortable swings at room temperature.
Inefficiency costs money. With older or malfunctioning thermostats not only does your comfort suffer but so does your pocketbook. Instead of keeping your home optimally warm or cool, an older thermostat will tell your system the wrong information. This causes your system to cycle on and off at the wrong times – which ultimately costs you money.
With wireless connectivity and built-in intelligence, smart thermostats give you command over your comfort and energy savings.
Carrier® Infinity® System takes full advantage of the best technology Carrier has to offer, including Greenspeed® technology and Hybrid Heat® system management. The Infinity® System Control can manage humidity levels, airflow, ventilation, indoor air quality, and up to 8 zones, from wherever you are, with a connected smartphone or tablet. It’s also compatible with Amazon Alexa™ energy tracking and reporting and has occupancy sensing ability that can automatically set the system back to maximize savings when you are away.
With the wi-fi enabled Ecobee thermostat, you can access and control your thermostat with your voice, make calls, and play music. Its built-in occupancy sensor automatically adjusts the temperature for energy savings when you leave home and restores to your comfort settings when you return. And the Ecobee mobile app makes it easy to adjust your heating and cooling settings on the go.
Many heating and cooling problems can be traced back to the thermostat. Sometimes the thermostat is out of adjustment and needs repair. Other times it could be that your thermostat is worn and needs to be updated. Updating to a smart thermostat can help you optimize your comfort and save on energy bills. Whether your thermostat needs an expert to come and assess repairs or you need to install a new one, Jacobs consultants will find the best option for you.
Smart thermostats can do things a traditional thermostat can’t. One of the main benefits of a smart thermostat is optimizing and automating the control of your heating and cooling system.
