5 Benefits of Smart Thermostats

5 Benefits of Smart Thermostats
  • Opening Intro -

    Wi-Fi-enabled devices aren't just for laptops and smartphones anymore.

    Everything from watches to cars have the ability to connect to the internet, and your home's thermostat is no different.


Even if your old thermostat still works well, you may find it beneficial to upgrade to a Wi-Fi-enabled model.

  • It Has a Convenient Remote Control

    A thermostat that offers Wi-Fi connectivity includes a special remote control that allows you to adjust the temperature no matter where you are in your home. Do you often get cold while you’re watching movies on the couch?

    Instead of getting up to adjust the heat or search for a blanket, use the remote to change the temperature. You will also be able to read the individual temperature for each room in your home to ensure your HVAC unit is meeting expectations. Finally, some models provide information on the outdoor temperature and humidity in real time, which means no more reading multiple weather reports and hoping one of them is right.

  • It Improves Energy Efficiency and Saves You Money

    A Wi-Fi thermostat allows you to program your home’s temperature from any internet-enabled device. Are you going to be running errands longer than you expected? Use your smartphone to set your home’s temperature to something less energy-consuming while you’re gone.

    Perhaps you are getting off work early. Use your laptop to turn on the heat and get your home to the right temperature by the time you pull in the driveway. Because you have full control over when your HVAC unit is heating and cooling, you will prevent using energy when nobody is home and likely will save money on your utility bills.

  • It Offers Aesthetic Appeal

    You can purchase a Wi-Fi thermostat in a wide range of colors and styles. Is your home ultra-modern? Choose an angular thermostat that matches the lines and sharp angles in your home. Perhaps your thermostat is located in a uniquely painted room. Many Wi-Fi models offer the option of changing the color of the casing and the backlighting to match any room in your home, which will make it fit much better than an older thermostat that is often “one size fits all” and rather bulky.

  • It Alerts You to Temperature Changes While You’re Away

    If a room in your home has a change in temperature while you are at work or on vacation, your Wi-Fi thermostat will email you about the issue. A drastic change in the temperature could indicate someone has broken a window or that a room in the house is on fire, allowing you to have someone check on your home or call 911 even if you aren’t around to do it yourself.

  • It Alerts You to Issues in Your HVAC System

    A Wi-Fi thermostat has the unique capability to monitor your HVAC unit and provide reminders or alerts when you need to perform maintenance or when the system is not working as well as it should be. How many times have you forgotten to change the filter on your unit, or how often have you heard a strange noise and wondered if something was wrong with the system? Your new thermostat will let you know exactly when you need AC repair services.

Even if you aren’t someone who needs a thermostat with different colors or a wide range of features, there is no denying the benefits of a Wi-Fi thermostat. The money savings alone are likely to make the purchase a worthwhile one.
