The first air conditioning unit was actually invented by Ancient Greeks, but it wasn’t until 1620 that the first mercury thermostat was invented, allowing people to accurately measure the temperature of the air surrounding them. In the hundreds of years since humans have continued to work on monitoring and controlling our environments to increase comfort and support health and wellness. These days, almost every home has a heating and/or cooling system of some kind and, with today’s smart technology, it’s becoming even easier to regulate our surroundings.

So there’s no doubt that if you go shopping for one today, you’ll have plenty of options. All of the smart thermostats on the market lay claim to a number of different benefits.
