Before buying any smart thermostat for your home, spend some time comparing your options. The good news is you have a lot of features available from numerous manufacturers, according to Berkeley Heating & Air Conditioning. Some will provide indoor air quality control information, allowing you to know if there’s a high level of pollutants in your home, excessive moisture, or other concerns. These typically connect to your HVAC’s ventilation system to provide that information.
The higher-end models offer zoning systems, which allow you to adjust the temperature based on the area of the home rather than a single set number for the entire space. For example, if you don’t use your basement, there’s no need to heat it as high as the rest of the home during the winter months. That also means you can adjust the temperature for each bedroom in your home, so everyone’s happy, depending on where you set up those zones.
