Is a Smart Thermostat Worth the Upgrade?

Smart Thermostat.

A smart thermostat is a must-have heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) tool to help you save on energy costs in your Utah home. 

Without it, you remain tethered to your standard wall thermostat for every manual temperature adjustment you make. You can dial the temperature back to save energy, but you must be at home, within reach of your standard thermostat. 

With a smart thermostat, you gain precise temperature control no matter where you are. You can effortlessly improve comfort, save energy, and keep utility bills in check. 

Salt Lake City’s Trusted HVAC Professional 

How do you choose a smart thermostat compatible with your Salt Lake City heating and cooling system? At Just Right Heating & Cooling, we can help you select the best thermostat for your HVAC unit. We offer many brands, including Daikin and Goodman products, and can recommend a model that suits your comfort needs and budget. 

Our experts typically install a smart thermostat within a few hours. After setting up the device, our technician will demonstrate thermostat programming and explain features such as remote access.  

Remote Access and Smart Thermostats

A smart thermostat connects to your home Wi-Fi and offers remote access through an app downloaded to your smartphone. This convenient feature allows you to adjust indoor temperature, schedule temperature changes, read humidity levels, and peruse energy usage reports from anywhere, whether you are miles away from home or mere steps from the thermostat. 

Compare the advantages of remote access to the inconvenience of manual operation. You cannot adjust your standard thermostat unless you are at home.

You can dial it back to save money when you leave your home, but you may return to an uncomfortable environment. Maintaining a comfortable temperature while away from home wastes money on heating or cooling an unoccupied space. 

Smart Thermostat Features

In addition to offering remote control, you can set your smart thermostat to use geofencing technology to detect your location and proximity to your home. As you get closer to home, your smart thermostat will increase heating or cooling. When you arrive, the indoor temperature will be exactly where you want it to be. 

Smart thermostats adjust automatically after learning your temperature preferences, daily routines, and weather conditions. They will dial up or down to save energy when you are away from home or go to sleep.

Smart Thermostat Options

At Just Right Heating & Cooling, we offer a variety of smart thermostats, including products from Honeywell, ecobee, Daikin, and Goodman. These are user-friendly thermostats that help you save on heating and cooling costs. 

  • Daikin’s One+ smart thermostat recognizes when your home is unoccupied and automatically adjusts to an energy-saving temperature. 
  • Daikin’s ENVi, a Wi-Fi programmable thermostat, notifies you when your HVAC equipment needs a tune-up, needs a new filter, or has malfunctioned. 
  • The CTK04, available for both Daikin and Goodman units, can anticipate performance issues, and its internal diagnostic controls assist technicians in making the correct diagnosis. 

Lower Your Salt Lake City Energy Bills

An ENERGY STAR® smart thermostat saves approximately 8 percent of heating and cooling bills—about $50—depending on climate, personal temperature preferences, and HVAC equipment.

Saving on energy costs is what smart thermostats do best. They also contribute to a cleaner environment by reducing energy consumption. When you use less energy, you reduce your carbon footprint, and that is a plus for the entire planet.
