Benefits of Wi-Fi Thermostats
Just when you thought having a programmable thermostat was pretty handy, thermostat technology has taken another impressive leap to Wi-Fi thermostats!
There are many benefits of Wi-Fi thermostats. You can read and adjust your thermostat from any location with an Internet connection. Are they worth the hype? Here are 5 awesome benefits of Wi-Fi thermostats:
- Remote access– Whether you’re still in bed or halfway across the country, if you have a w-fi thermostat, you can manage your settings no matter where you are. Turn the heat on in the morning before you get out of bed, make sure the air is on before you get home from work, or manage your thermostat settings for the vacation rental that you don’t visit often. Wi-Fi thermostats allow you complete control no matter where you are.
- Improved accuracy of readings– Temperatures can vary significantly between the rooms in your home, and traditional thermostats may not always give an accurate temperature. Wi-Fi thermostats, however, do an excellent job at communicating with the rest of your HVAC system in your home to make sure that you are always comfortable and that the readings they give are incredibly accurate.
- Additional information– Traditional thermostats will only tell you the temperature of the room they are located in. Wi-Fi thermostats, on the other hand, will give you more accurate temperatures of your entire home.
- Temperature alerts– With a Wi-Fi thermostat, you can sign up to be alerted by phone, email, or text anytime the thermostat reaches a certain temperature. Whether a window is broken or your system has malfunctioned, if something is causing the temperature to rise or plummet in your home, you’ll know so you can fix the problem.
- Maintenance reminders– Lastly, Wi-Fi thermostats can be programmed to offer you maintenance reminders. Do you have a difficult time remembering to change your air filters or to get your HVAC maintenance in order to keep your system in top working order? Now, your Wi-Fi thermostat can remind you.
