For many people, holiday shopping is probably winding down. For others, it might be just getting started. Wherever you are on that long to-do list, you might be pouring it over and come across a name where you ask yourself “What on earth am I going to get them?” There’s always someone on your list who is incredibly difficult to shop for, as you have no idea what kind of gift they would like and consider thoughtful and enjoyable. Nobody likes to give a dud gift, but some people can be so difficult that you’re almost okay with it just to get it over with.
If this person is a homeowner, then we may be able to help: why not consider getting them a smart thermostat? We firmly believe these are one of the lesser-known and yet incredible gifts that virtually anyone can benefit from. Why? Here are three great reasons.
Smart Thermostats Are Affordable
Smart thermostats come in a wide range of prices and styles, and you can spend almost as little or as much as you would like. Looking for a low-budget option? Some of the most basic programmable thermostats can be had for as little as $100 to $150. Going a little higher? Some higher-end models can reach up into the $400 to $500 range, and come packed with even more fantastic features that make operating your heating and cooling system enjoyable and efficient!
And there’s a benefit to the person you’re gifting to as well: dollar for dollar, there is no more effective upgrade to your HVAC system than a smart thermostat. With just this small investment, you will dramatically improve the functionality of your friend or loved one’s heating and cooling system, and help them enjoy a more comfortable home!
Smart Thermostats Are New Technology
Everyone loves getting a new gadget to play with. You know that feeling of getting a new smartphone—the one where you’re so excited to try out all of the new features and feel it as you hold it in your hands? A smart thermostat can have the same effect. These are a fairly new technology, and Wi-Fi integrated thermostats are even newer still. However, that doesn’t mean these thermostats are unproven or risky in any way—they have advanced considerably, and continue to do so even today through over-the-air firmware updates.
Likewise, with new technology comes new capabilities that you likely have never seen before. A Wi-Fi integrated thermostat gives you the ability to turn the heater or air conditioner on or off with the touch of a button. You can adjust the temperature without ever leaving your seat. You can even see real-time status updates, including energy consumption readouts from some of these systems. If you know someone who loves the best in modern technology, then this is without question a great gift for them.
Smart Thermostats Save Money
Finally, perhaps the greatest feature of a smart thermostat is the amount of money it can save you. Smart thermostats are designed around one thing: energy efficiency. Their goal is to help you run your air conditioning and heating system more effectively, thus lowering your energy bills and keeping more money back in your pocket. In a way, giving a thermostat is sort of like giving someone money, only it’s also a far more thoughtful way because you’re also improving their overall quality of life with a new piece of technology that improves their home substantially!
