When was the last time you drove away from your house and only then remembered you forgot to turn the temperature down for the day? While you were away for hours at a time, your house sat toasty and warm. And you paid for the furnace to run continuously to heat a home that sat empty for hours at a time.
With a wifi thermostat, you can adjust your temperature from anywhere in the world, as long as you have access to the Internet.
That’s one of the biggest reasons people invest in a wifi thermostat. To be able to adjust the temperature via your smartphone or tablet from anywhere – in bed before you rise for the day or from the airport as you’re ready to head out on vacation – is a major benefit. But there are several other reasons to consider installing one too.
If you can control the temperature from anywhere at any time, you can heat or cool your home only when you need it. And with less energy used for the heating and cooling process, that means your utility bills will be as low as possible. Start by automating the process according to your schedule. Then further adjust it based on the changes you have in your day. Now it no longer matters if you decide to stay away from home a few hours longer in the evening – just adjust your thermostat, and you’ll continue to reap the rewards.
You can also benefit from knowing when your heating and cooling systems have a problem. Receive automatic alerts in the event your temperature rises above or falls below your desired settings. This can be a sign your system has broken down so you can make the necessary calls and get a service technician to your home as fast as possible. It can also alert you to when filters need to be changed, or annual maintenance is required. Think of it as your personal HVAC assistant.
