What Can a Wi-Fi Thermostat Do For Your Home?
Wi-Fi thermostats connect to your home’s wireless Internet service, giving you greater control of your home’s comfort systems. In fact, they are the new standard for home comfort control and automation. Read on to learn what a Wi-Fi thermostat can do for your home efficiency strategy and more.
Comfort and Savings for Your Lifestyle
Programming automatic temperature changeovers makes it easier for you to maximize home efficiency without sacrificing comfort. For example:
- Programming your Wi-Fi thermostat to turn down/up the temperature in your home 10 degrees after you leave for work is going to save you a lot of energy dollars.
- Your same program will bring your home to your preferred comfort temperature before you are due to arrive.
Some models of Wi-Fi thermostats even “learn” how to self-program by monitoring room occupancy and movement of the people in your home. All you have to do is fine-tune the program to your exact needs, if necessary.
Wi-Fi thermostats have been around for several years. Though, they are just beginning to be utilized to their fullest capabilities. Consider the analogy and even correlation between a Wi-Fi thermostat and an old manual thermostat being comparable in convenience and technology to the latest smartphone and an old-fashioned rotary dial phone.
Following are more great benefits of going with wireless HVAC controls:
- You have remote access with any Internet-connected device, such as a tablet, laptop or smartphone.
- Receive system alerts and weather reports via your smartphone app.
- Link and control compatible comfort and IAQ systems, such as whole-home ventilation and air cleaners.
- Set user controls with an intuitive interface, online software, or from your smartphone.
Once you are using your new Wi-Fi thermostat for a short time, you will wonder how you ever got along without it!
