There are many improvements you can make to your home in Aurora, and one of them is updating your heating and cooling. When installing a new HVAC system, you have two choices when it comes to thermostats: traditional and smart. Here is the difference:

Traditional Thermostats

You probably know what a traditional thermostat is. Think back to your childhood, and you might remember. Generally, these usually have a sensor that tracks temperature, and it turns the HVAC system on and off based on the room’s temperature. When the temperature falls or rises, the HVAC system once again kicks into gear. It does this 24/7, so it is constantly working, which means it’s constantly running up a bill. You can manually change this, of course, but no one wants to remember to do this several times a day, right?

Smart Thermostats

A smart thermostat is a bit different. They, too, control the temperature in your home, but they have some pretty great features. For instance, a smart thermostat might have a motion detector. When the thermostat senses that there are no people in the home, it turns the HVAC system off. When it senses that people are moving around, it turns the HVAC system on to the temperature that is set. This, of course, saves you money.

You can also set these thermostats to turn off and on at certain times of the day, and you can even set certain temperatures for different times of the day. For instance, imagine that it’s summer in Aurora, but no one is in the house during the day. Do you really want to spend the money running your A/C? Probably not. With a smart thermostat, you can program it to turn on right before you get home from work, so the house will be cool and comfortable when you get home without running all day.
