Modern smartphone technology has become a part of daily life, and various apps allow you to manage some of life’s most essential tasks. From your smartphone, you can order groceries, pay bills, buy clothing, check your bank balance, and more. Smart homes have also become a common part of daily living. You can control many of your home’s systems from your phone — including your HVAC system. Smartphone HVAC apps allow you to control your HVAC system conveniently and from anywhere.

Finding Smartphone HVAC Apps

No matter if you use an iPhone or an Android, each offers HVAC apps to make controlling your home’s temperature easier. When looking in your phone’s app store, all you need is one that works with both your phone and your HVAC model. When looking for a suitable app, be sure to compare features and costs. A simple, free app may provide exactly what you need. However, if you want a more feature-rich app, buying a premium app (and any needed hardware additions) may be more suitable. 

Why Use Smartphone HVAC Apps?

HVAC apps offer many advantages for homeowners, including:

  • Monitoring Your Home’s Temperature. Using a smartphone app allows you to track your home’s temperature when you’re away. This is useful for knowing when to turn on the air or heat, ensuring that you return to a comfortable home.
  • Scheduling. Many apps allow you to set schedules for your HVAC system, ensuring your home is always at the desired temperature. You can set temperature ranges and actions by periods of the day and even by specific hours as needed.
  • Advanced Features. More-advanced HVAC apps allow you to track fine details such as your HVAC filter status, usage statistics, and freeze prevention in very cold weather.
