There are few things more satisfying than when your home is at the perfect temperature. Thanks to your HVAC system’s thermostat, getting your home to the correct temperature is easy and fast. A smart thermostat is a great option if you want to have even more control over your home’s temperature. Read more to understand when and where you can install a smart thermostat.

What’s Unique About Smart Thermostats?

Smart thermostats allow you to customize your home’s comfort in new ways. One important feature of smart thermostats is that you can control a smart thermostat from your phone. Smart thermostats can connect to your home’s wireless network, allowing you to adjust the temperature and track your HVAC system usage from anywhere in the world. Smart thermostats also learn your living habits and can help ensure your home stays comfortable whenever you’re home.

The Wiring Question

Most smart thermostats have some kind of digital screen that displays the temperature. These screens need electricity to operate. If you have an older thermostat, your HVAC system may not have the proper wiring to provide electricity to your thermostat. Vent Masters can come to your home and check your current wiring setup to see if you need an additional wire to use a smart thermostat.

Proper Placement

It’s important to consider placement if you want to install a smart thermostat. For starters, you need to make sure that your smart thermostat is close enough to your wireless router to get a good wireless signal. If you plan to use the machine-learning features of your smart thermostat, you’ll also need to make sure the thermostat is in a room in your home that your family frequently uses. Vent Masters can help you find a great location for your new smart thermostat if you’re concerned about your current thermostat’s location.
