Upgrade Your Home Comfort With a Wi-Fi Thermostat

March 21, 2017 | Blog

Upgrade Your Home Comfort With a Wi-Fi ThermostatProgrammable thermostats have long been touted as a way to help homeowners save money. Typically, users program schedules that cut back on cooling or heating when it isn’t needed. But many homeowners find the programming complicated. For some, a viable alternative is being found in the newer Wi-fi thermostats.

Just load an app to your smart phone, tablet or computer, and you can easily control temperatures with your Wi-fi thermostat — and more. Ease of programming is not the only benefit you’ll find in this newer, smarter technology.

Read on for some of the ways you can increase your home’s comfort when you upgrade to a Wi-fi thermostat.

Near or Far, Set the Thermostat as Needed

Most travelers have experienced alarming news of a sudden shift in the weather at home. If it’s happened to you, then you can understand the growing appeal of Wi-fi thermostats, which allow users to reset the thermostat from wherever they are. Say you’re in Hawaii on the beach, but news of a rare deep freeze in Corpus comes to you. There’s no need to panic: with just a touch to your phone or tablet screen, you can raise the home’s temperature so the pipes don’t freeze. Then, when the danger is past, you can lower it again.

With the right kind of Wi-fi thermostat, you can even request alerts for future changes in the weather at home or around the world.

Some other cool things Wi-fi thermostats can do:

  • Monitor the humidity in your home. You can also remotely operate a humidifier or dehumidifier, keeping the humidity within the recommended range.
  • Raise or lower the temperature so your home will be comfortable when you arrive.
  • Alert you when there’s a problem, such as low refrigerant level, or the air filter needs changing.
  • Monitor energy usage in the home, so you can plan for efficiency upgrades or other adjustments to save money.
