4 Benefits of a Thermostat Upgrade

Interested in installing a wi-fi-enabled thermostat into your home? Learn more about the benefits below:

Chillicothe Heating & Cooling

Reduced Energy Costs

Wifi thermostats are most well-known for reducing homeowners’ energy costs. They provide savings by automatically adjusting the temperature depending on whether you home, sleeping, or away, analyzing your heating and cooling patterns for energy-saving opportunities, and letting you create temperature zones that can be independently controlled.

Maintenance Reminders

Wi-Fi connected thermostats also provide helpful maintenance reminders. Many people know they should change their home’s air filter, but homeowners often forget to. From simple maintenance like this to more serious heating and cooling issues, a wi-fi thermostat will send you reminders to keep your system running smoothly. The reminders are based on how long the system has been run for, which is the most accurate way to keep track of heating and air conditioning maintenance items.

Tracking Energy Use

A smart thermostat also provides energy reports about how much power you are using. Also, they show how your energy use has changed over time and how much this is likely to cost you. As a result, these reports are typically bundled with tips on adjusting temperatures to save money.

Unique Features

If you opt for an Ecobee 4 or Ecobee SmartThermostat, it has Alexa built-in, so you don’t necessarily need to purchase a separate smart speaker. Some thermostats also include room sensors that can measure the temperature in a specific room or area of the home and heat or cool that room specifically based on the temperature in that local area, reducing hot or cold spots in the home. If your thermostat has geofencing, it can recognize when you enter the home and save on heating and cooling cost when you’re away from home.

“What temperature should I set my thermostat?”

Deciding what temperature to set your thermostat can be tricky if you’re on a budget and you live with others. To help you find a comfortable balance between comfort and energy savings, we present the following:


When it’s cold

Sometimes it takes a little trial and error finding that sweet spot temperature in a home, regardless of whether you are more interested in comfort or savings. A general rule of thumb for energy-saving heating is to set it at 68°F. For more comfort, you might raise it 1 or 2 degrees at a time. Remember to dress warm indoors for savings. And if you can take it lower, turn the temperature down 1 or 2 degrees at a time.

When it’s hot

Nothing beats the relief of a cool, humidity-controlled home during those especially hot days of summer here in Ohio. To pinpoint your happy zone, try setting the A/C unit to “cool” at 78° F for a good mix of comfort and energy efficiency. From there you can adjust it as needed.

Money Savings Tips

According to the Department of Energy, a homeowner can save up to 10 percent every year on cooling and heating just by setting the thermostat back 7 to 10 degrees from the normal level for a mere eight hours a day. With this in mind, at nighttime when you’re sleeping and/or during the day while you’re away, save yourself some hard-earned money and make the necessary adjustments.

4 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Not sure if you need to improve the quality of your indoor air? Here's a few tips to determine if you have poor Indoor Air Quality:

Chillicothe Heating & Cooling

Dust Buildup

If you have dust buildup around your home and the area around air vents, you might have an indoor air quality problem. At the very least, the buildup of pet dander, pollen, dust mites and other particles can be addressed with an air filter upgrade or HEPA filtration system.

Chillicothe Heating & Cooling

Unusual Odors

Strange odors from chemicals, mold or mildew growth, pest infestation, or the decomposition of dust, dirt and debris on surfaces in the home all indicate indoor air quality problems.

Air Distribution Inconsistencies

Cold and warm spots are indicative of air distribution problems, which can also result in indoor air quality issues. If your HVAC system isn’t maintaining proper temperature and humidity levels, your indoor air quality is likely suffering the effects of this.

Mold & Mildew Growth

Mold and mildew growth often come with high relative humidity levels and poor air circulation in the home. A telltale musty smell is often apparent in homes with mold issues, alongside green and black (mold) spots on surfaces, particularly around sinks, tubs, and other areas that are frequently exposed to moisture/water.
