What is a Smart Thermostat?
Smart thermostats are an upgrade to the prior generation of thermostats, which were merely programmable thermostats. Smart thermostats give homeowners superior control of their home’s overall climate and air quality with energy savings that enable you to do more. You can adjust the temperature at any time from anywhere with a tablet, computer or smartphone. Additionally, a smart thermostat also contains additional features, such as the motion sensors and WiFi connection, in addition to software that helps you improve on any issues you might have experienced with programmable thermostats.
What Temperature Should I Set My Thermostat?
What can be harder than finding the perfect temperature setting for a thermostat when you have multiple people living under one roof? If you’re on a budget or trying to reduce home heating and/or air conditioning costs for your home, getting everyone to agree on a comfort level can be tricky. In order to help you find that ideal balance between energy savings and optimal comfort, we suggest the following thermostat tips:
Winter setting for saving energy
Although it might take a little bit of trial and error to get it right, finding a good wintertime thermostat setting is essential. In the HVAC industry, there is a general rule of thumb we recommend for energy-saving settings during the wintertime. Start by setting your thermostat at 68° F to see if that generates enough heat. If it doesn’t, you can move it up by one or two degrees at a time. Each time you increase the temperature setting, wait at least an hour to allow your heating system time to adjust. One thing that really helps is wearing warm clothing in the home so you don’t need as much heat. With warm clothing like sweatpants, sweats or a hooded sweatshirt, you should be able to lower the temperature to 68 degrees without an issue. If this setting feels warm and you want to save more money, lower it one or two degrees at a time. Just remember it takes at least a full hour to adjust.
Thermostat setting for summertime
Some of us like to keep our dwellings nice and cool during the hot summer months — some cooler than others. Either way, we all depend on our air conditioning units during the summer to provide cool air and humidity relief. To get the coolest air inside a nice humidity-controlled home during those especially hot days of summer here in the Southwest Ohio area while saving money, homeowners have to find that ideal zone. To find your ideal thermostat setting for summertime, set your air conditioner’s thermostat at 78° F for a good mixture of comfort and energy conservation. From there you can adjust it as necessary and pinpoint that perfect temperature for you and your family. Don’t forget you need to lower the temperature slowly and give it an hour or two to cool off.
Money-savings is the name of the game when it comes to keeping our homes comfy at the lowest possible cost. Did you know you can save up to 10 percent off your overall home heating and cooling costs every year by adjusting the thermostat 7 to 10 degrees away from the usual level for at least 8 hours each day? The U.S. Department of Energy recommends homeowners try doing this at night time or while they’re sleeping and if possible during the daytime as well when everyone is away at work or school in order to maximize energy savings. We recommend homeowners install a smart thermostat if they have not already because a smart thermostat or wifi thermostat automates this whole process making it hands-free. Additionally, smart thermostats can automate and optimize your settings for energy-saving to make your life much easier, and keep you far more comfortable at a lower cost.
Other times of the year
Although the older iteration of the modern thermostat, the programmable thermostats, automatically adjusts your home’s temperature levels for comfort when you’re awake and home, they still require all that manual input and constant attention. Installing a wifi thermostat is a far better investment. Smart thermostats and wifi thermostats monitor your habits and “learn” your schedule to help you maintain both comfort and energy savings. Plus, Wi-Fi® thermostats give you even more flexibility with comfort control from your smartphone, laptop or tablet. Our Wi-Fi thermostats must be connected to Wi-Fi for remote connectivity. You need an iOS® or Android® mobile device to use our app.

Common Thermostat Questions & Answers
How long do smart thermostats last?
The industry’s best smart thermostats, which we sell and install here at Milford Heating & Cooling, include Honeywell, Ecobee, and Google Nest. These thermostats are made to last a long time. The amount of time varies based on several factors, like how it’s being used and maintained, the brand of the product, the model, and the settings being used. Overall, experts say that the average lifespan of a smart thermostat should be a minimum of at least a decade. In fact, as long as there isn’t any sort of damage caused to the device and it’s being used properly, you can make your smart thermostat last much longer than that.
Are programmable thermostats as good as smart thermostats?
Smart thermostats and wifi thermostats offer homeowners a great deal more than what a programmable thermostat can do for you. In fact, they are referred to as being “smart” for a reason. This is because these hi-tech thermostats are intuitive and, well, smart. WiFi thermostats and smart thermostats work intentionally and intelligently to regulate your home comfort system and air quality devices around the clock. They learn your usual schedule quickly for each day of the week. Then, they target times when no one is home to reduce heating and cooling costs. Once the thermostat’s programming knows when everyone comes and goes, it will make temperature a

Basically, if you can use a smartphone, you won’t have any issues with figuring out a smart thermostat.
