Today's thermostat boasts a high definition color touch-screen display, as well as several other features that the old mechanical thermostats did not. Want to see the three day weather forecast? Touch an icon at the top of the screen. Curious about your energy usage for the week? It can show you that too. Instead of a simple switch between what you want the temperature to be in your home and your HVAC system, today’s thermostat can learn how to make your system more efficient by remembering what time of day you want the temperature of your house to raise or lower and, automatically, do it for you. They are intuitive. You can change the temperature of your home in Urbandale while you are away on vacation in Katmandu using your smart phone. Smart thermostats are responsive, adaptive, convenient and (most importantly) reliable. They offer much more than just temperature control and can be installed in less than 30 minutes in most cases.
