Is Installing a Smart Thermostat Really Worth the Cost?

May 10 ,2018

When summer weather rolls in, you already know you’ll be forking over more money to keep your home comfortable. If you’ve been thinking about investing in a new, advanced thermostat, the one thing that’s probably holding you back is the price tag. Is the device and installation really worth hundreds of dollars?

In most cases, yes. Upgrading to a smart thermostat can be a great move for your home’s comfort and your wallet due to the following reasons.

  1. It will give you more control over your AC. Tired of adjusting your thermostat only to revisit the temperature gauge again in an hour or so? Then maybe it’s time to install a thermostat that truly monitors and handles your heating and cooling system efficiently. You’ll find that your home is more comfortable at any given time of day, and that you will rarely have to pay attention to your thermostat anymore.
  2. Your home will become more environmentally friendly. Because your intelligent, programmable thermostat will be so adept at managing your home’s cold and hot air, you’ll avoid wasting energy on unnecessary electricity. This is a plus for both your bank account and the environment.
  3. The device eventually pays for itself. If you use your air conditioning unit consistently, according to most surveys, your smart thermostat will have saved you enough money to pay for itself within a handful of years. This might seem like a long time, but in reality, it’s a great money move to make if you plan to keep the device for years to come.

If you’re sick of hot and cold spots in your house or super-high electricity bills, then it’s high time to look into installing a smart thermostat. They’re energy-efficient and reliable in ways that old thermostats simply can’t be.
