Smart Thermostats


At Williams Plumbing, Heating & Air, we have more than 45 years of experience working with all types of HVAC systems and elements near Guilford County. While technology is ever-changing and new machines are expanding rapidly, we upgrade our workforce to cope with the ongoing expansion, ensuring our experts can work with newer and more efficient systems, such as smart thermostats.


To understand that, first, we need a concept on the thermostat itself, which is a sensing device that detects the changes and fluctuations in temperature, and signals other paired systems to take proper steps to maintain the desired temperature, such as high temperature in winter and vise versa.

Smart thermostats work on the same principle but automate the process. They can be programmed or simply automated to maintain different temperatures throughout the day by connecting to other HVAC systems and giving them commands. This is used mostly as a smart home appliance, where you don't need to input anything physically and the systems will detect and take measure themselves. Smart thermostats don't need any wiring or other physical connections as they can be connected to your HVAC systems via the internet, wirelessly, making them very efficient and clean.


Like all smart machines and components, smart thermostats offer a variety of advantages depending on their usability, such as:

  • A huge amount of energy gets wasted because of untimely on/off schedule and temperature regulation when done physically. By maintaining temperature automatically, they save this energy and your electricity bills.
  • You can control smart thermostats with your smartphone via apps, and you get all the functionality with higher convenience.
  • They often offer predefined and editable temperature profiles that you can use to quickly switch between one type to another type of weather.
  • By detecting proximity, smart thermostats can automatically turn off your HVAC systems when you get out of your home, saving energy.
  • They can detect when to repair or do maintenance jobs on your HVAC systems to run them more efficiently.
  • Trigger low-power settings when you're not using these machines.
  • Some premium smart thermostats can even learn the patterns of when the room might be occupied, and then they can prepare the room temperature before your arrival.
  • Smart thermostats can provide you analytical information and telemetry of how the machines are performing and your energy consumption so that you can plan ahead.
  • They can collect weather information from the internet and program themselves to change temperature and humidity accordingly.
  • You can use them for individual rooms or an entire house.
  • As smart thermostats are a proven way to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint, many programs are arranged throughout the country that rewards people who choose to use them.

These are some of the advantages smart thermostats bring with them, which makes them a better deal over conventional thermostats.


At Williams, we have a wide collection of smart thermostats that are perfect for most consumers. We can also help you choose the best one for your floor space and existing systems, install, and maintain your new smart thermostat too! A malfunctioning smart thermostat can lead to total system failure as other HVAC systems depend on its command. Call us any day of the week to secure a quick appointment, and our teams of experts will be at your doorstep in no time at all.

We have utilized Williams Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning for "many" years. Recently we had Scotty & Bill in our home for plumbing issues, which were promptly corrected beyond our expectations. They took the time to explain what was needed, why and to show us what was accomplished. They were most professional and efficient. This company takes the extra step to maintain staff (in and out of the office) to be most helpful and reliable. Their word is TRUSTWORTHY! Please continue to maintain the reputation we have become accustomed to and depend on. Blessings always to all.
