Fall weather is often fickle in Fairfax, Virginia. Some days, the sun is shining and suddenly there’s a rain squall. Or, the day can start off cool and all of a sudden a mini-heatwave hits in the afternoon. Changing weather is challenging for setting the temperature in your home. Use your smart thermostat to help keep your home comfortable this fall.
Adjust the Smart Thermostat Remotely
One of the best features of a Wi-Fi-connected thermostat is the ability to adjust the temperature when you’re away from home. Simply download the compatible app onto your mobile device, and you can change the temperature as needed. This feature is especially beneficial during unstable weather patterns. If the temperature changes dramatically, set the thermostat to the desired temperature remotely.
Allow the Thermostat to Learn Your Preferences
Many advanced smart thermostats have the technology to learn occupants’ temperature preferences and schedules so that the thermostat can make adjustments automatically when the weather changes. Smart thermostat home automation makes setting the desired temperature easy for you and helps to ensure that your home is always comfortable.
Take Advantage of the Energy Reports
Energy bills are one of the largest utility bills you receive. It would be nice to see what part of the house uses the most energy and at what time of day. When you receive energy reports from the smart thermostat, you can track energy usage and make adjustments accordingly. As a result, you’ll save money and resources.
Pay Attention to HVAC Reminders
The smart thermostat will send you reminders for when you need to change your air filters or when maintenance is due. It’ll also send alerts if there are performance issues. If you receive a report that there’s an issue, you can schedule a maintenance visit before the problem becomes serious.
