Every Homeowner Needs To Know These 3 Ways A Smart Thermostat Can Save Them Money

What's A Smart Thermostat?

Great question. Let's get some definitions sorted.

Put simply, a smart thermostat is like any other thermostat in that it controls the temperature of your home. A Smart Thermostat differs however, by adding internet connectivity, so you can control it through an app on your smart phone - even when you're not at home!

What Are The Benefits To A Smart Thermostat?

Where to begin? There's all sorts of benefits to a Smart Thermostat. So strap yourself in and get ready to learn!

1. You Can Adjust Your Heating From Anywhere

That's right. One of the main benefits of a Smart Thermostat is that you can contro your heating from anywhere. So there's no more coming home from an evening out to a cold home. You can just sit in the back of a taxi and whack that heating on so your home will be toasty and warm when you arrive.

Equally, if you forget to turn your heating off and you go away for a few days, your Smart Thermostat will recognise that there's no movement in the house and it will turn itself off. Or, ask you on the app if you'd like the heating turning off. It's like having a robot you can talk to telepathically controling the heating in your house.

2. You Can Save Money

This is the big benefit of a Smart Thermostat. It can save you money. Whereas standard thermostats switch on and off at certain times on certain days, a Smart Thermostat will make that a thing of the past. 

Instead, you can go away on your winter holiday, turn your heating off for the time you're away, and then turn it on when you get reports of a cold snap back in the UK so your pipes don't freeze and burst.

This is the same situation if you have a holiday home, or an Air BnB property. You can turn the heating on and off from the comfort of your living room, confident in the knowledge any propsective guests won't feel the chill and ruin your star rating because they've walked into an ice box.

3. You Can Save Energy

Not only will a Smart Thermostat reduce your bills, it will also help the environment and the climate crisis.

Obviously we've discussed the benefits of turning your heating on and off from anywhere above, so I'll not go over that again. But a Smart Thermostat also gives you the added benefit of managing the heating in specific rooms in the house. So, if there's a room that no-one ever uses you can turn the heating off in there at the touch of a button. Which means you're not paying to heat a room no-one ever uses.

And obviously, if someone starts using the room, the app on your phone will prompt you to turn the heating on. Because it can recognise movement in there. You can reject that prompt if appropriate. Or if it's just your in-laws come to visit!


Having a Smart Thermostat is like having full control of your heating from the palm of your hand. It's a no brainer if you want to save money, save energy and prefer to have total control of the heating rather than letting the kids run wild with it by pushing buttons when they're bored.

We are proud of our reviews

  • Nothing but excellence! We have a pleasure to work with The Better Home Company on multiple refurbishments projects and their quality of work as well as professional approach at every step of the way has been consistently fantastic.

  • Mario recently installed new cabinets since my old ones were damage due to a water leak. He was very punctual, professional and thorough. Rafael was with him the first time and he did an excellent job and I did not catch the name of his colleague on the second visit, but he was extremely nice also. I was very pleased with the service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • I can fully understand why Which? recommends your company. I am delighted with the result of the works and I was extremely impressed by Yarek. He had remembered what we had discussed at the first visit and understood what I needed and why. He is excellent!!... first class work, very knowledgeable, hardworking and efficient. My flat feels greatly improved after the works. I was surprised when John arrived to join Yarek. He was also well focussed. Also I was pleased to receive helpful phone calls to tell me when Yarek would arrive because he was delayed. This meant that I wasn't worried.


  • Great experience from quote to completion of the work. All done quickly, without any trouble and to a high standard. This will be my “go to” company for future jobs around the home.


  • I was positively impressed by the Better Home Company engineers. Not only they knew what they were doing and they did it well (install a new consumer unit and rectify all sort of issues with the electrical system), when confronted with a tenant coming back home exhausted from a business trip, a landlord checking on the work, a decorator and a surveyor all in the house at the same time, Laurence Lane showed tact, great manners, diplomacy and good old common sense. Well done!


  • We’ve had some great service from this team. They are always prompt/on time, don’t try to rush out with a half done job, provide constant communication, and always dig out helpful solutions. We’ve just been caught in the London flash floods and the job the team has done, in just a matter of hours, has been superb.


  • Excellent service - we had been previously advised (by British Gas) that we needed an expensive procedure to repair the central heating system. TBHC provided an estimate (best out of 3 sought) and arrived to start work but noticed a problem, which 4 previous engineers had failed to spot or ignored. Engineers replaced a defective part and had the system running again in half the time and without the additional cost. Two friendly and knowledgeable engineers who I would wholeheartedly recommend.

  • Outstanding service by Michael the electrician and Mark the gas technician. Michael was very quick and efficient. He was exceedingly polite and very, very friendly. Such a cheery disposition! Mark took the time to explain what he was doing, which was very helpful. He too was very friendly and so lovely to talk to! Both were excellent, and I'd happily rely on them for any technical help again, and strongly recommend them to anyone who needs effective, skilled, quick, and friendly technical help.


  • One efficient cheerful and punctual guy you have in your company. He came earlier before me and i was surprised because they normally come a bit late. He was also good at explaining things on why it has to be done this and that way. He also courteously asked if i can wait for awhile for him to get a missing part. Such a professional guy. I give him 5 stars. And not to mention he never left the place he worked on dirty. He left it well tidied up. Thumbs up for Laurence
