Like many homeowners, you may be thinking about how well your heating system is going to be functioning during the coming winter. There are many, many things that a homeowner can do to improve the efficiency of their heating system, and we encourage you to take action on some of those things. One potential improvement that is not only cost-effective, but highly beneficial, is an upgrade to the “brain” of your heating system – the thermostat.
Thermostats in our modern age do much more than just switch the heat on and off. They can monitor the usage of specific rooms, adjusting the temperature based on the room’s typical activity. They can learn the best times of the day to activate the heating system based on trends in your family’s behavior. They can be connected to your home WiFi network so that you can control the temperature even when you’re away from home. All of these advances in thermostat technology could be very useful to you this winter!
