Quite often, when a homeowner or business owner thinks about Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), they think only in terms of the big piece of equipment that provides the cold (or warm) air.

The truth is, however, that a tiny little computer that sits on your wall can be just as important as compressor, furnace or ductwork.

Thermostats have come a long way over the past few years, and are now as integral to efficient, smart home and office comfort as anything that any HVAC contractor may install. And if you still have an older model thermostat, perhaps you should learn more standards for the current marketplace and ask yourself:


Why install a smart thermostat?

A smart thermostat offers many advantages in heating and cooling – not just in providing comfort but, as stated previously, in providing quality air (and more) in the most efficient manner possible, methods that will be noticeable in your bank accounts.

For instance, let’s take a look at Carrier’s ecobee smart thermostats.

An ecobee Smart Thermostat powered by Carrier actually learns your air conditioning and heating needs, and personal comfort preferences, processes that information and then heats and cools in a method that will help you save up to 23 percent in annual energy cost. In short, it puts you more in control of your home comfort and energy savings, as you only need go about your daily life and provide a small amount of interaction with the smart thermostat itself.

And, because the ecobee Smart Thermostat is full of the latest technological advances, you can even interact with your thermostat remotely. In fact, you may access your HVAC system from anywhere with your Apple or Android devices. And these smart thermostats also work seamlessly with third-party smart home platforms such as Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT.

Constantly analyzing patterns and adjusting itself to most efficiently meet your needs, smart thermostats are ready to help in a number of methods that were unthinkable even a few years ago. It even takes the outside weather into account each day, so that it automatically understands how hard (or lightly) it may need to work to achieve the best indoor atmosphere on a given day.

Considering north Georgia presents a climate that may be 90 degrees and sunny one day and only 70 degrees and raining the next, that knowledge is crucial when it comes to highly efficient energy usage – in other words, your air conditioner may not have to cool as hard on rainy days, but it does need to increase its ability to pull humidity out of the air. And, no matter when you need it, Carrier’s ecobee Smart Thermostat can provide details on savings each month and insight into your heating and cooling equipment performance.

This system goes several steps further, however, and is capable of even more modern conveniences.

It also offers:

  • The Smartsensor – Install the included SmartSensor in another room (from the thermostat itself) in order to help the system detect how many people are in your home or business – and where they are located. This allows your HVAC to better balance your home’s temperature and improve efficiency.
  • Voice control – Using Amazon Alexa voice commands, you can even stream music to a Bluetooth speaker – as well as speak any cooling or heating demands you desire.
  • Follow me mode – With this option turned on, room sensors detect which rooms are in use and signal your ecobee thermostat to adjust the home temperature accordingly for comfort in those rooms

While smart thermostats may be relatively new, they are also already dependable and offer a five-year-limited warranty when purchased through and installed by a Carrier dealer.

Smart thermostat technology will eventually be the standard throughout homes and businesses for north Georgia, but there is no reason to wait for the efficiency and savings these impressive little gadgets may offer to their owners.
