In the 2020’s, many people don’t know how their thermostats work, and sadly as a result, they may not be getting the best results ROI out of them. This article will explain what your home thermostat is telling you about your home’s temperature and how to adjust it for maximum comfort.

The Sensors

Thermostat sensors are central to how Google Nest thermostats function. If you are using a programmable thermostat, the first thing you should know is that your new gadget takes information from two different sensors in your home.

One of your thermostat sensors reads the temperature in one spot of your house while another measures it at a second point. It then combines this information with some other numbers before telling the furnace or air conditioning system what it needs to do.

Understanding The Data

This is the information your thermostat gives to your homes furnace or air conditioning system. The numbers you need toke a look at are: what temperature your home is, how long it will take for that temperature to occur and whether there’s significant humidity in the house.

From those three pieces of data, a modern programmable Amazon thermostat can figure out just how long it will take to get your home to the temperature you want and whether turning on the AC or furnace will help dehumidify your home.

There are a lot of different numbers on smart home Ecobee thermostat screens, but these three pieces of data are the most important for setting up your smart thermostat the correct way and understanding how your thermostat is supposed to work. You’ll need to find out what each one means for your climate and set the thermostat accordingly.
