Benefits of a Smart Thermostat
With the advances in technology, our homes are becoming ‘smarter’. We can connect our phones to our refrigerators, our windows, and even our thermostats. A smart or digital thermostat is worth considering because they provide:
- More precise control over temperature
- Syncing with your smartphone allows you to monitor your home when you’re away
- You can get alerts if the temperature gets too hot or cold
- A smart thermostat installation saves money by guiding you to better energy habits
- Programmable thermostats make it easier for you to set and monitor the temperature

What is a WiFi Home Thermostat?
You may have heard about WiFi thermostats and wondered how they differ from a programmable thermostat. The truth is they’re similar. A programmable thermostat allows you to set the temperature for the days and times of the week. You can set it so the temps differ during the day and the night to save energy. The WiFi thermostat takes it up a notch by learning from your energy usage and suggesting ways in which you can save money on your energy bills. Also, WiFi thermostats hook into your home’s WiFi network and mesh with your computers, tablets, and phones for greater monitoring and control. If you’re not sure which device is best for you, call us for a consultation.
