Which smart thermostat do I need for my home? 

Before you invest in a smart thermostat, there are a few questions you should ask yourself. Do I need a programmed, non-connected thermostat or a smart thermostat?

A non-connected thermostat is easier to programme and less expensive. A smart thermostat, on the other hand, is an excellent choice if you want complete control over your heating. When you're not at home, programmable thermostats are certainly the best option for your home. The reason for this is that shortly before you arrive, the thermostat begins to alter the temperature. If you spend most of your time at home, raise the temperature a few degrees above usual to make it more comfortable. 

Is my HVAC system compatible with smart thermostats? 

The vast majority of smart thermostats are compatible with traditional heating and cooling systems. There are, however, a few that do not support a specific heating system, such as a two-stage heat pump. If your heating and cooling systems are distinct, you may need to install separate thermostats. Please let us know if you have any further questions that we can address by contacting us now.
