Residential Smart Thermostats

Smart Thermostats Help to Cut Your Electricity Costs

We use a lot of electricity to cool our Palm Springs and Coachella Valley homes and installing a smart thermostat can help to reduce your electricity costs. We will explain everything you need to know about these intelligent thermostats to get started.

What is a Smart Thermostat?

You might be asking yourself, “Can’t I just manually always adjust my current thermostat?” True, you certainly could opt for constantly manually adjusting your existing dumb thermostat, but how many of us could keep up with always making adjustments, and be honest, how many of us even remember how to program our thermostats! Changes are happening automatically without having to think about it, and that also helps to save you money.

How Does a Smart Thermostat Save Money?

The thermostat senses when you have left the house and can adjust the temperature accordingly. For example, when you go out to dinner and a movie, there is no need to waste electricity on excess cooling for an empty house.

Why is this Better than Manually Adjusting My Current Thermostat?

You might be asking yourself, “Can’t I just manually adjust my current thermostat?” True, you could do that, but who has the time to make constant manual adjustments? And, to be honest, how many of us even remember how to program our thermostats! A smart thermostat automatically makes changes for you. That saves you money.

Smart Thermostats Can Spot Problems Before They Happen

A smart thermostat can anticipate a problem before it happens. When Desert Tech installs and sets-up a smart thermostat, we program it to detect problems. A smart thermostat can recognize a potential problem before you notice it yourself. It’s like having a technician in your home monitoring your air conditioning system and heating system 24/7.

Many customers choose to have their smart thermostat also alert Desert Tech. This allows Desert Tech to proactively respond to issues before the air conditioner or heating system fails.

How Much Does a Smart Thermostat Cost?

A smart thermostat ranges in price from $200 to $300. The more sophisticated models allow you to talk to them, making it even more convenient!

Here at Desert Tech Air Conditioning, we prefer the thermostats made by Ecobee. We find they are the most reliable and have the best features.

How do I Install a Smart Thermostat?

You can install most smart thermostats yourself. Based on our experience we find most of our customers prefer to have us install the device for them. Desert Tech Air Conditioning will be happy to help you get started by installing and setting it up.

In response to significant concerns among our customers about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Coachella Valley, we want to let our customers know about the precautions Desert Tech is taking and the services we are offering during these times:

  1. Desert Tech is offering add-on air sanitation and anti-viral cleaning and filtering equipment/products for your air conditioning and heating systems. This equipment uses filters and UV light to filter out and kill viruses, bacteria, spores, mold, and other airborne pathogens and on surfaces. We have secured a variety of this type of add-on purifiers. Please be aware that, as with many items at this time, quantities are limited and are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  2. The health of our customers and our employees is our top priority and so we have taken the following steps:
    • In 90% of service calls, our technicians need not enter your home. You need only allow them access to your garage, yard space, or rooftop to carry out their tasks.
    • Our technicians are following strict sanitization procedures and will wear N95 rated face masks, face shields, and gloves.
  3. As part of servicing your equipment, Desert Tech has secured a limited supply of N95 face masks that we will made available to existing Desert Tech customers at a nominal fee. These are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
