If a person wants to save money and be environmentally conscious, installing a smart thermostat is a good idea. The Ecobee thermostat learns a home’s heating and cooling patterns, which allows it to be more energy-efficient. This can ultimately save the homeowner 20% on heating and cooling bills. In addition to this, if a user has a smartphone, he can control the thermostat remotely. Turning the heat up while at work or cooling it down while at home is a breeze.
