Smart Thermostat FAQs

Smart thermostats are a valuable investment in comfort and energy savings. Many devices will pay for themselves over a single year. At Blind and Sons, smart thermostat installation is one of our most popular services, and the following are some of the most common questions our clients ask.

How Much Does a Smart Thermostat Cost?

Smart thermostats range in price from less than $100 to about $500. The cost depends on the brand you choose and the features you want your thermostat to offer.

How Difficult Is It to Install a Smart Thermostat?

Most homes already have all the wiring in place required for smart thermostat installation. This makes the process of installing a smart thermostat in your Ohio home quick and simple. If the home needs additional wiring (specifically a C-wire) or an adapter installed, this is usually a simple, straightforward process.

Are Smart Thermostats Compatible With Alexa and Google?

Many smart thermostats are compatible with Alexa and/or Google home services. These include the ecobee, ecobee4, Honeywell RTH958WF1004, Honeywell T5, iDevice, and Google Nest. Our technicians can help you choose a system that is compatible with the Amazon and Google devices in your home.

Can You Fit a Smart Thermostat to a Boiler?

Absolutely! Smart thermostats are compatible with oil, LPG, or gas boilers. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to program your boiler as desired and make adjustments from your phone, tablet, or computer at any time.

How Does a Smart Thermostat Save Money?

Smart thermostats help save you money in a variety of ways. First, they make it possible for you to adjust the settings from your phone, tablet, or PC. Whether you are at work or far away from home, you can connect to the device and make adjustments as the weather changes. Moreover, many have learning algorithms and adaptive gain control that can make automatic adjustments without your input. This translates to less energy waste and lower utility bills each month.

How Long Does a Smart Thermostat Last?

You can depend on your smart thermostat to provide reliable service for anywhere from five to twenty years. As with all electronics, you can expect higher-quality devices built to exacting manufacturing standards to last longer and provide better temperature control within your Ohio home.

When Should One Replace a Thermostat?

Thermostats are built to last many years, but they will need to be replaced eventually. If you find your home experiencing unusual temperature swings or your thermostat’s readings are incorrect, it may be time to replace it. A newer model will enable greater control and offer increased efficiency by running on a programmed schedule. Replacement thermostats range in price, depending on the technology, but they are relatively affordable and are a great investment.
