Asalaam o alaikum, Here is why you must say As-Salamu Alaykum,

“When you enter houses, give greetings of peace upon each other - a greeting from Allah, blessed and good.” Quran ch24 v61

“The word buyoot (houses) is indefinite so this includes any house that you enter and not just our own, even if no one is there at the time. [Allah says] alaa anfusikum ‘upon yourselves’ meaning to give salaam to one another. This word is used to show that the Muslims are like one entity due to their mutual care, love, and mercy. Then Allah praises this greeting by saying, “a greeting from Allah, blessed and good”. This greeting is to say: As-Salamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu. “From Allah” meaning He has ordained it for you and has made it your greeting. It is Mubaarakatan (blessed) because it a supplication that includes peace, safety, seeking blessings, mercy, and an increase in goodness. It isTayyibah (good) because it is good speech from the One who is Good (At-Tayyib).”

Also, Anas (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, “Dear son, when you enter your house, say As-Salamu Alaykum to your family, for it will be a blessing (barakah) both to you and to your family.” [Tirmidhi, Hasan/Good according to shaykh Al-Albani]
