What is a Smart Thermostat?
Smart thermostats allow you to control your home cooling and heating wirelessly. Smart thermostats can be used with home automation systems that are Wi-Fi connected, and they can be accessed through internet-connected mobile devices.
Smart thermostat installation provides capabilities like temperature scheduling, zoned comfort within your home, and can begin to learn the behaviors of your household to automate settings and adjust temperatures based on occupancy, conditions, and preferences.
- Remote connectivity: Smart thermostats can be remotely adjusted via smartphone or web app. This makes it simple for you to better conserve energy while you’re away from home.
- Energy reporting: Smart thermostat installation allows data to be collected about your home’s energy consumption. You can access this data through the app and see how much your heating and cooling is costing you and adjust your settings to maximize savings.
Most HVAC manufacturers have integrated smart thermostat technology into their products. This allows many options for homeowners in the market to replace an outdated HVAC system.
Smart thermostats do cost more than standard programmable thermostats. You should expect to pay $200 or more for installation.
The installation can range widely in cost depending on the type of HVAC system, the components of your system, and if connected with other smart appliances and equipment. Expect to pay between $100 – $250 for installation.
Is this a DIY Project?
There are guides available from each thermostat manufacturer that allow you to install the thermostat yourself. However, it is not just connecting a few wires and connecting the thermostat to the internet.
Installation requires you to check compatibility, make electrical connections, and configure all the connected components.
There are limited video installation guides available as well. However, your air conditioning system is something that provides comfort to your home, and the least amount of downtime the better.
