There are many comfort accessories available to help your HVAC work more efficiently and effectively. One of the most common accessories receiving a lot of attention these days is the smart thermostat. What is a smart thermostat and how does it help control the inside temperature of your home? Keep reading for the scoop, including four ways this device can help you to regulate your home's climate control.

What Is a Smart Thermostat?

While there is no perfect technical definition of a smart thermostat, it is the same as a programmable thermostat but can be remotely adjusted, such as through the home's Wi-Fi network and an app on the user's smartphone or tablet. A smart thermostat can monitor or record information about the home's HVAC use and the environment, such as indoor air temperature and how long the HVAC runs.

Depending on the thermostat, additional features include the ability to learn your living schedule so the thermostat can program itself as well as notifying you when regular maintenance is necessary, such as changing the HVAC's air filter.

How Does a Smart Thermostat Regulate a Home's Temperature?

A smart thermostat can regulate a home's temperature in four ways:

  • First, it can work as a simple thermostat, turning an HVAC unit on or off when the thermostat senses a certain temperature.
  • Second, it can serve as a programmable thermostat, turning on the system at a particular time to bring the home to a set temperature.
  • Third, it can be remotely controlled through the Internet and the app, as if you were standing right in front of the thermostat at home.
  • Fourth, the smart thermostat can analyze your past settings and indoor conditions. It can then program itself to anticipate your needs, such as heating or cooling the house before the family wakes up or returns home. This means you never have to program the thermostat.
