Do you have a thermostat with “heat/cool” options? Most homeowners have this option, which can be annoying when you need to manually switch over to the appropriate setting based on the heat/cool feeling in your home. With Utah weather, you can find yourself moving this setting several times a day. One way to eliminate this is by installing an auto changeover thermostat.
How Does An Auto Changeover Thermostat Work?
Nest is one of the most popular auto changeover thermostats on the market today thanks to its intuitive ability to learn your heat/cool preferences and adjust your home accordingly. You will set a range for the temperature in the home and if the temperature goes above a certain level, the AC kicks on, if the temperature goes below another level, the furnace kicks on.
These modern thermostats are incredibly valuable in the fall and spring when the Utah weather cannot seem to decide if it should be hot or cold! Some of the key features include:
- Programmability based on your life. Turn the thermostat up and down a few times and pretty soon it will be able to learn what you like and will start to adjust the heat/cool settings automatically.
- Conserve energy. Using a programmable thermostat is a great way to save energy as the thermostat will turn itself up or down based on when the space is empty, preventing excess use of the furnace and air conditioner when you are not home.
- Mobile connectivity. Some of the auto changeover thermostats are designed to integrate with your smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can control the temperature in your home no matter where you are.
