Smart Thermostat Installation For Cleveland and Surrounding CommunitiesLooking for a convenient way to improve comfort and energy savings in your home? Look no further than a digital thermostat. Smart thermostats offer many advantages over conventional thermostats, from increased comfort, improved energy savings and remote access to temperature controls. However, there are differences between manufacturers that you should be aware of. Here are a few questions to ask when considering a smart thermostat.
Do you have a C-Wire?A C-wire, or common wire, provides continuous power to your smart thermostat display as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. If you don’t have one or aren’t sure, give Clover Electric a call and we can help install one if needed.
Where Should My Smart Thermostat Be Installed?When installing the thermostat it's important to keep it away from vents and sources of heat that could affect the temperature readings. Place the thermostat in an area with minimal disturbance such as an interior wall.
Does it work remotely from my phone?If you plan to use it from your phone make sure that the app works on your device. Having a connected thermostat alert you when your heating system has broken down can be very helpful if your furnace suddenly fails on a sub-zero day while you're vacationing in Mexico!
Is it compatible with Other Technology in Your Home?One of most convenient features of smart thermostats is their ability to interact with voice assistants like Google Home, Alexa® and Siri® from inside your home, or from your phone while you're away. Check the manufacturer's website to see if your assistant is compatible with the thermostat models you are considering.
Track Energy SavingsIf you're interested in improving efficiency and lowering energy costs, many models have apps with data tracking and reporting. You'll be able to see hour-by-hour and day-by-day how often your heating and cooling system are operating, allowing you greater control over how much you spend each month.
