Why You May Want to Get a Smart or WiFi Thermostat

The thermostat in your home may seem to be no more than a simple “on-off” switch to a lot of people but the reality is that without your thermostat you’d be pretty uncomfortable. The right kind of thermostat doesn’t just switch your HVAC systems on and off either, it can also let you know what your energy usage looks like. That is why we recommend a Smart or Wi-fi thermostat for your home in Fresno–because it can offer these benefits while optimizing your comfort.

If you still have an older thermostat in your home, it may be a good idea to schedule a Smart thermostat installation in the near future. We can provide this service so that you will enjoy a more comfortable and efficient summer season.

Why Install a Smart Thermostat?

Smart thermostats are great additions to the modern Fresno home for multiple reasons, such as their ability to increase your home comfort. Here is a breakdown of the best benefits we think you should know about:

  • More accurate temperatures: A smart thermostat is going to provide more accurate temperature readings for your home which means when you need your AC to adjust your indoor environment, the end result will be much closer to where it is actually supposed to be.
  • Energy usage reports: Some smart thermostats are able to provide a report of your energy use patterns. Not only is this helpful in giving you an idea of how to use less and keep your costs lower, but it can also be a way to pick up on when something is wrong with your AC and you need to get it fixed.
  • Programmable comfort: You can set up programs with your smart thermostat based on your daily habits to help you use less energy without sacrificing your comfort. This means you can set up a program to start cooling the home before you get back from work, but keeps things at a higher temperature while no one is around.
  • Remote control options: Smart thermostats are able to be controlled remotely either through an app on your phone or a tablet app. This means that you can kick on the AC on your way home so things are pleasantly cool when you walk in the door.

Can I Install My New Thermostat On My Own?

The short answer is no, you can’t, or at least you shouldn’t. Thermostats may be easy to install but that doesn’t mean that this should be attempted without the help of the experience a licensed technician can provide–even if you have a Youtube video helping you. Instead, if you are looking to upgrade to a smart thermostat, you should ensure it is done right by scheduling the service with our team of professionals.

We strive to provide honest answers and solutions to the problems our customers experience while remaining highly competitive in price and offer the fastest turnaround you can find! We’ve been doing this since we opened our doors in 1970. Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning to schedule service you can rely on.
