Normal thermostats require a specific temperature to be set at all times. You can get up and change that temperature but it’s not easily adjustable throughout the day. Smart thermostats allow for adjustments to be made throughout the day. If you won’t be home during the day, you can set it to a more energy efficient temperature to avoid your system burning up excess energy while you’re away. Saving energy can save you a lot of money, making smart thermostats a great investment. Our team of experts are ready to help you with your new smart thermostat installation!

Smart thermostats allow you to adjust your thermostat to the perfect temperature all from an app on your phone. No more getting up and down to achieve the perfect temperature!

You can also program your thermostat to turn on right before you are supposed to get home, ensuring your home is the perfect temperature the moment you arrive.
Easy to Use
Most smart thermostats have digital displays that are easy to use. Many models can be connected to Wi-Fi, making it easy for homeowners to change settings from their phone, tablet, or computer. These thermostats also have the ability to learn and adjust to your schedule to automatically adjust temperatures depending on when you’re usually home or away. You won’t even have to worry about adjusting it — it can automatically do that for you!
Energy Usage Reports
Some models of smart thermostats can track your energy usage and tell you things like how much you ran your AC last month, and how your energy usage compares to others. It can also reward you for choosing to use more energy-efficient settings.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Money Can a Smart Thermostat Save You?
Many manufacturers of smart thermostats claim that by installing one, you can save between 10–23% on your annual energy costs.
How Does a Smart Thermostat Lower Your Energy Costs?
Installing a smart thermostat keeps temperatures as energy-efficient as possible. You can enter your desired temperature and regular daily schedule. The thermostat uses this information to keep your home at your desired temperature when you are home, but at an energy-saving temperature while you are away. Using less energy leads to significant savings in energy costs.
Exterior walls often go through rapid changes in temperature. They are often hotter than normal in the summer and colder in the winter. Smart thermostats contain a sensor so if it senses the wrong temperature, it can cause your system to run when it’s not necessary. Internal walls ensure your thermostat is reading the correct temperature.
Avoid Areas With a Lot of Sunlight
Rooms with many windows that are exposed to a lot of sunlight are hotter than the rest of the home and could cause your thermostat to run your system unnecessarily.
Keep Away From Entryways
Anytime you open the door, a burst of wind enters your home. Having your thermostat in an area that is exposed to this will be a sure way to throw off your thermostat’s sensor.
Find a Centralized Location
The best place to install a thermostat is in a central location in the home that is easy to access, but away from as many possible temperature fluctuations as possible. Many specialists have also determined that 60” is the best height for a thermostat. Hot air rises and cold air falls, so placing your thermostat too high or too low will lead to your system running when it’s not necessary.

Should I replace or repair my AC unit?A:
Many customers ask if they should repair a broken air conditioning unit versus a full replacement. Often, a well-maintained and newer AC unit will be able to be repaired depending on the issue.

However, if the AC is more than 10 years old, has not been regularly serviced, or is in need of a major repair, replacement is the best option. Our team will provide all available options for homeowners to consider.

What Type of Central A/C Unit Should I Install?A:
Here’s where the load calculation comes into play, as you want to pick the right size A/C unit to install – either too big or too small of an A/C unit can lead to costly repair or replacement down the road.

How Much Does it Cost To Get My Air Conditioning Unit Installed?A:

But no matter what unit you pick out for your home, ask an expert at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air for fast answers & reliable service. Trained technicians can come to your house to give you an upfront, transparent installation report, as well as consult you on what unit your home will need.
