It’s been proven that automated, or “smart,” homeowners pay less in heating, cooling, and electrical costs. The owner is the first to know when a battery dies, a bulb goes out, or a cold front moves through – even if that homeowner is miles from home. Smart thermostats are eco-friendly and budget-friendly; by closely monitoring resource use, they can save homeowners hundreds, even thousands.
Beyond the lofty benefits of smart thermostat use – namely, greener cost savings – smart thermostats make life easier. Your smart thermostat will automatically adjust to time changes, for example, and will utilize local weather data to control the temperature of your home. Geofencing, one of the Honeywell Lyric’s features, tracks the homeowner’s location, then turns on the AC or the furnace automatically in advance of their arrival.
With a smart thermostat, you can control the temperature of each room in your house – without ever getting up off the couch. A few taps to your smartphone, and you’ve got access to every heating and cooling unit in your home. Many smart thermostats provide usage reports to their users, and all smart thermostat settings are easy to both override and restore.
