No matter what time of year it is, there is always the opportunity to make any room in your New York City home more comfortable and cozier. If it’s the summer, you might be struggling to keep the heat down throughout the house, while keeping the house warm is the goal during the winter season. This is where a smart thermostat can completely turn your situation around.
Climate control lets you manage your home’s internal temperature at all times. This might sound simplistic at first, but a smart thermostat can make this daily struggle for comfort a breeze with just a press of a button. Want to find out more? Just keep reading on below.
Different areas and spaces throughout your home require different temperatures for maximum comfortability. For instance, the kitchen can get a bit hot while you’re cooking or prepping a meal for family and friends. Your media room can start to feel chilly as the sun sets you and you begin a movie. With a smart thermostat, you can easily adjust the temperature in any room, no matter where you are at the time, with one button press using a single control device.
Create scenes that integrate your smart thermostat! Make sure guests eating in the dining room feel at ease and ready to talk with a “dinner” scene that lowers the shades, dims the lights, and adjusts the temperature perfectly. This creates ambiance and encourages conversation over the meal. Another scene could be a “movie night” one that lowers the blackout shades in your home theater, turns on your AV system, and bring the temperature up to a cozy and comfortable warmth. It’s that easy.
One of the best features of a smart thermostat is how easy it is to manage it from both in your home and from far away. Whether you’re on the way to work and you want to lower your heat or keep the HVAC system from running up your energy bills, you can simply pull out your smartphone and make the needed adjustments.
This feature is great for when you’re coming home from work or even a vacation. Remotely adjust your temperature on your home so that when you walk through the door, you are welcomed with warmth or with cool, fresh air! No matter the season, a smart thermostat benefits your lifestyle.
By having your motorized shades work with your smart thermostat, you’ll be saving money while also significantly lowering your energy usage.
Shades can seamlessly integrate with your climate control and respond accordingly to keep your home’s internal temperature consistent. When the sun is shining intensely inside, your motorized shades can lower to prevent solar heat gain and to keep your home from heating up too much. The same goes for when it’s extremely cold outside – no matter what season, your shades can provide incredible insulation from the outside weather.
This setup stops your HVAC from overworking to cool the place down or to warm it up. With the shades insulating your home, it’s much easier for your smart thermostat to maintain a consistent, comfortable temperature. And if the temperature begins to increase or drop by more than one degree, your thermostat can alternate between running your HVAC running and raising or lowering your shades. Climate control and integration tied together like this ensure that you conserve energy where you can, at all times.
