Four Reasons To Switch To A Smart Thermostat

January 24, 2022 | Blog

Have you been considering ditching your old manual thermostats and upgrading to smart thermostats, but feel like you need a little more information? At Express Air, we are the Pensacola AC experts that are excited about passing our knowledge on to you! A smart thermostat can be beneficial for many reasons. Before you make your decision, check out the four reasons below to switch to a smart thermostat.


Smart thermostats use AI and wireless technology that allows them to be controlled remotely. This means that unlike manual thermostats, you don’t have to be home to adjust your temperature.

If you forget to set your thermostat to a lower or higher temperature when you’re away from your home, you can simply adjust it from an app on your smartphone! This gives you the freedom to regulate the temperature of your home as your schedule changes throughout the day.

Zone Control

Have you ever manually changed your thermostat when leaving the house to save energy, then come home to a freezing or sweltering room?

Or maybe you want to ensure that your Pensacola living room is a little warmer and your bedroom is a bit cooler at night.

Well with smart thermostats, comfort is simple with a feature called zone control. When a smart thermostat is placed in each room, they can control the temperatures of those rooms with a process called zoning. They accomplish this by using sensors that measure the climate of each room and make sure it is set to your preferred temperature.

Smart thermostats auto-adjust to a predetermined temperature chosen by you. They also collect data about the temperatures in the home at different times of the day. This means that smart thermostats can essentially learn your behavior and over time, they will offer you climate schedule suggestions to ensure that you are always as comfortable as possible.

Energy Savings

As you can imagine, having a smart thermostat makes it easy to save money on your energy bill. A smart thermostat will give you detailed energy usage history so you can make informed choices about how to use your energy going forward. Getting an Energy Star certified smart thermostat helps you have the most energy-efficient HVAC system possible.


Another amazing thing about having smart thermostats is that they can provide a useful look at what’s going on in your HVAC system. Because smart thermostats keep a database of temperatures inside your household compared to the weather outside, they can tell if your Pensacola home is taking too long to cool down or warm-up.

This can be beneficial to pinpoint problems with your HVAC’s efficiency and can let you know when it’s time to call one of our professionals at Express Air! Smart thermostats can provide alerts about things like

  • Airflow efficiency
  • Maintenance needs
  • Energy use
  • Temperature drops
