A smart thermostat installation is a popular upgrade in many Hereford homes. ElectricsFixed are your local, reliable smart thermostat installation experts. Based in Hereford and covering the surrounding area, our experienced electricians can help you join the smart home revolution.
For many Hereford households, energy usage and the ability to take control of the bills is becoming increasingly important. A smart thermostat allows the user to control their heating from anywhere, at any time. You can switch on the heating on a chilly morning from the comfort of your bed or adjust the timer from the office when you’re running late. The installation of a smart thermostat gives you a greater control and can mean some significant savings on your energy bills.
Smart Thermostat Vs Traditional Thermostat
The basic functions of a smart thermostat remain the same as a traditional thermostat. You can set timers, boost the heating when it’s chilly and turn it off when not needed. The difference is the technology involved and the way you can control the functions. A standard thermostat has manual controls which you adjust from just one control panel. A smart thermostat installation will have a control panel to use at home and an app to use from your smartphone. This allows you to control your heating from anywhere. This is particularly useful if you have a hectic schedule and aren’t always home at set times. You won’t be wasting money heating an empty home on days when you have a change of plans.
Smart Thermostat Features
Smart thermostats come with a range of additional features which allow you to personalise your experience. When you adjust temperatures and timers a smart thermostat will begin to learn your preferences and pre-set the system accordingly. Some can be set to track your location from your phone. They will then switch on the heating when you are close by, so you come into a cosy home. This is called geofencing and is when a smart thermostat creates a virtual boundary that, when crossed, alerts your thermostat. Some smart thermostat installations can even detect open windows and draughts or react to outside temperatures dropping! All this clever technology is what makes them so useful.
One of the most popular features of a smart thermostat installation is zonal heating. This allows you to heat one zone or area of your home at a time, instead of the whole house. This is particularly useful in larger properties and is achieved by using more than one thermostat. By using the heating only when and where you need it, you will become more energy efficient.
Smart thermostats are incredibly user friendly and designed to be accessible to all. The amount of technology involved can seem daunting, but they are really very simple to operate. Our experienced smart thermostat installers at Electricsfixed will talk you through your options and help you to decide which system best suits you.
