3 Fantastic Reasons Why You Need a Wi-Fi Thermostat
When it comes to keeping your Brookfield-area home nice and toasty, it all starts with your thermostat. But did you know that today’s models are so advanced that you can turn up the heat right from your smartphone? In the blog below, the experts at Gross Heating & Air Conditioning explain how a Wi-Fi thermostat is a home comfort game-changer—and how you personally can benefit from one.
What Do Wi-Fi Thermostats Do?
In short, these devices let you control every aspect of your home comfort. A smart thermostat enables you to:
- Adjust temperatures on the fly right from your smartphone
- Schedule temperature changes based on when you’re home, at work, or on vacation
- Monitor how much energy you use and when
- Set up alerts to know when it’s time to change your air filter
- Receive reminders for regular heating maintenance
- Control your whole-home humidifier settings
How the Best Smart Thermostats Benefit You
Reduce Energy Costs
Programmable thermostats can help you save money on energy costs in two ways.
The first is by helping you create a temperature schedule throughout the day. This helps ensure there are no surprise upticks in usage—the thermostat only turns on your furnace when necessary so no power is wasted.
The second is by monitoring how much energy you use on a day-to-day basis. Knowing this can help you pin down when you’re using the most power, as well as come up with a plan to limit usage.
A smart thermostat learns your comfort habits and automatically adjusts indoor temperatures to meet your needs. For example, if you tend to turn down the heat at night and then back up again in the morning, a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat will learn this and make the adjustments for you. Gone are the days of futzing with the thermostat—today’s models tailor your comfort directly to your habits.
Assured System Health
Wi-Fi thermostats can set reminders to make sure you don’t skip routine furnace maintenance. This helpful service ensures your system is clean, tuned, and ready to handle anything the winter throws at it. Maintenance also helps reduce potential system breakdowns and helps the unit run as efficiently as possible.
