Add a Smart Thermostat to an Air Conditioner Upgrade
If you’re replacing your air conditioner and still using an older thermostat, now is the time to consider an upgrade. A smart thermostat has many benefits including increased home comfort, lower energy bills and remote access to your heating and cooling system.
A major advantage to a smart thermostat is its ability to learn your schedule and turn on and off depending on who is home. Additionally, you can always log in to the app or through a web portal to manually (and remotely) change the temperature in your home. This can help save money on monthly hydro bills by not using the system while the house is empty, but still ensuring it’s cool and comfortable for when you get home.
Depending on the smart thermostat you install, you can even get reminders on when to change the filter, schedule regular maintenance or if there’s a potential problem with the AC system. Another advantage of a smart thermostat is that it can seamlessly integrate with other smart devices. For example, the Nest can pair with Amazon’s Alexa to control the temperature from virtually anywhere in the home.
If you’re still relying an older thermostat and you’re planning on upgrading your air conditioner, make sure to add a new smart thermostat to your order. The technician can install the new thermostat after the AC upgrade and explain how the functions work and make sure everything is in proper working order.
