One of the newest types of thermostats available for homeowners is the Wi-Fi thermostat. The thermostat allows you to change your home temperature from your smart phone or from any an Internet connection. In addition, the Wi-Fi thermostat also “learns” your habits and can automatically adjust the temperature in your home based on whether you are home or not.
How do Wi-Fi thermostats work?Wi-Fi thermostats are more commonly called smart thermostats. Most of us will turn our thermostats to cooler (or warmer in summer) temperatures when we are not going to be home for the day.
The “smart” thermostats will provide you valuable information such as how long it will take you to get your home back to the right temperature and how much energy you are using. Some of the higher-scale models will also adjust automatically based on the humidity levels in your home.The cost of Wi-Fi thermostats
Wi-Fi thermostats vary widely in price, depending on how many features they have and how intelligent they are. When you are considering a thermostat upgrade, you should take into consideration how long you plan to be in your home as well as how much your new thermostat will save you over time. There are a number of units available and we can help you find the one that is right for your specific needs.
The savings with Wi-Fi thermostats
Most of us are fully aware that if we keep our heating or cooling system running while we are not at home, we are wasting valuable energy dollars. Because a Wi-Fi thermostat can learn your habits and can be programmed from your smart phone when you are away from home, you can save money.
The US Department of Energy estimates that most consumers can save an average of $180 per year by installing a Wi-Fi thermostat in their home. For most homeowners, this is a significant savings and the cost of the unit will more than pay for itself.Let’s face it, energy bills can get quickly out of hand whether in the summer months when you need your home cooler or in winter months when you are trying to keep your family warm. A Wi-Fi thermostat can help you maintain the perfect temperature in your home year round and save money as well.
