So you’ve recently purchased an ecobee SmartThermostat – congratulations! With so many great features, chances are you probably haven’t gotten the chance to fully maximize your new thermostat’s awesome capabilities. In today’s post, your friends over at Climate Systems Heating and Air Conditioning share a few tips on how you can really take advantage of this exceptional smart thermostat.
Hands-free temperature control. Voice control is the holy grail of any smart home, and your ecobee SmartThermostat is good friends with Siri, Echo Dot and Google Home. This means you can easily set the temperature in your home without even having to leave your couch.
Easy temperature schedule. By using the ecobee app, you can easily program specific thermostat settings. This is especially useful if you have a daily routine. Using the app or web portal, you can get a quick overview of your daily and weekly schedule and tweak it for maximum comfort.
Maintenance reminders. Your HVAC system is a major investment, and naturally you’ll want to do everything you can to keep it in good shape. With your ecobee SmartThermostat, this is a breeze. It will alert you of any serious issues such as low temperatures and will send you notifications through the app when it’s time for you to schedule preventive maintenance.
Full customization. The ecobee SmartThermostat includes threshold settings that allow you to fully customize how your thermostat uses your HVAC system. While we recommend letting your ecobee manage these settings automatically for maximum energy efficiency, if you own a heat pump or two-stage furnace, you can opt to adjust the settings yourself to further save on energy consumption.
From heat pump installation to furnace repair and everything in between, when it comes to your HVAC system, you can rely on Climate Systems Heating and Air Conditioning. Give us a call at (724) 935-3900 or fill out our contact form to schedule an appointment today.
