New developments in automated climate control and smart thermostats make your home more comfortable, help the environment by using energy more efficiently, and save you money on your utility bills.

By automating your home’s climate, you will experience a new level of convenience and luxury. Imagine waking up on a winter morning and the heat has already come on before you have to leave the cozy comfort of your bed. Or coming home on a sweltering summer evening to a comfortably cool home, without having to waste money and energy by leaving the air conditioner running all day.

Technology has solved the age-old problem of family members disagreeing about whether a home is too hot or too cold. Now, you can set individual temperatures in each room, and everyone will be happy.

Automated climate systems are fine-tuned to fit your schedule. A smart thermostat takes the process even further by learning your schedule and climate preferences and then programming itself to meet your needs. Other advanced options include sensors that monitor temperature to enable automatic adjustments, or detect if anyone is in a room and turn off heating and cooling when rooms are unoccupied.

Many of these systems allow you to control your climate remotely, using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Say you decide to come home early one day. You can override the automatic programming with a few keystrokes or taps and have the house ready at the exact temperature you choose before you walk in the door.

Smart thermostats work by learning from your input. Some pay attention to the adjustments you make to thermostat settings to learn how to anticipate your needs. Others use high-tech strategies such as using location-sensing features on your mobile device to know when you are leaving or heading home and to adjust the temperature accordingly. Some systems can even tell when a door or a window in your home is left open for an unusually long period of time and then shut off your air-conditioning to prevent wasting energy.

Automated climate control systems and smart thermostats offer even more ways to help you save energy. Some turn energy saving into a game, giving you a motivating reward when you improve your energy efficiency. Others give detailed reports of the energy used by different devices and appliances to help you pinpoint where you can make the most effective changes.
