How a Smart Thermostat Installation Helps You Save Energy and Money


Do you want to upgrade your air conditioner this summer without replacing the entire system? If you’re still using a manual thermostat to manage your home’s comfort, consider investing in a smart model from Trane. Read on to learn how a smart thermostat installation can help you save energy and money in Pinellas Park, FL.

Has Self-Configuration Features

A manual thermostat doesn’t have many features. You must walk to the device every time you want to lower or raise the temperature setting. On the other hand, a smart thermostat has self-configuration features that allow it to work independently of your input. As a result, it can automatically monitor your daily habits and optimize your cooling settings for energy efficiency. You can also set your own customized cooling schedules for every day of the week.

Offers Remote Accessibility

The most popular feature of smart thermostats is that you can access them from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. Adjusting your home’s temperature can be as simple as logging into an app on your smartphone and tapping your screen a few times. Gone are the times when you forget to turn off your air conditioner before leaving for vacation and worry about the cost of your cooling bill. Now you can turn it off at the airport or hotel.

Shares Detailed Information

It’s hard to call a manual thermostat the brain of an HVAC system when comparing it to what a smart thermostat can do. Smart thermostats contain sensors that monitor data and share detailed information with you either on the screen or via the app. For example, they can pinpoint where and when you’re wasting energy so that you can take steps to resolve the problem. What’s more, they can alert you when it’s time to change the filter or schedule maintenance.
