Finding the Right New Thermostat

The main question that’s on homeowner’s minds is: Wi-Fi or smart thermostats? Let’s break it down:

Wi-Fi Thermostats

Wi-Fi thermostats are like digital thermostats with better control.

Wi-Fi thermostats are great because you can program them from almost anywhere in the world. All you need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Now, you might not think that your thermostat having internet access is going to help you save energy, but it does.

Think about it: how many times have you left your home without turning off your HVAC system and cursed yourself. How many times have you pre-programmed your thermostat and then realized later that your pre-set schedule doesn’t match your current day? These are both a thing of the past with a Wi-Fi thermostat. Your HVAC system control is always at reach with this unit.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are Wi-Fi thermostats with the added capability of “learning” about your home. Yes, you read that right. A smart thermostat spends the first couple weeks that it’s in your home analyzing how you temperature control your space. It takes note of temperature settings, start times, and cycle lengths. Over time, it can start to suggest the most energy-efficient practices to you to save you energy and money.
