Thermostat technology has come a long way since the days of the dial-and-slider manual thermostats. Today homeowners have an option to install digital, digital programmable, and “smart” thermostats. These thermostats come with features that not only make operating them more convenient and precise, but also permit greater energy savings from the home’s HVAC system.
One of the choices you have for thermostat installation or replacement is a Wi-Fi model. If you are currently on the fence about replacing your older thermostat, we’d like to share with you some of the benefits you will receive with a Wi-Fi thermostat.
- Access from anywhere – Or at least anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection or cellular access for your smart phone. You can turn the thermostat on and off, set its programming, and read reports on energy usage through your desktop or laptop computer, tablet, or smart phone. Remote access means you can easily prevent energy waste from your HVAC system and still have comfortable temperatures whenever you return home.
- Reports – Wi-Fi thermostats offer you reports on your energy savings. This allows you to see how you can improve heating and cooling performance to maximize savings. You only have to make a few tweaks, and you’ll see results almost immediately. The thermostat will send other reports us well, such as reminding you when you need to change the air filter and notifications of extreme high or low temperature in the house.
- Smart programming – If your Wi-Fi thermostat is also a “smart” thermostat, then you will have most of the work necessary for optimal cooling and energy savings taken care of automatically. The thermostat will learn from your history of settings and develop its own program to increase your savings even more—without you needing to do anything!
