Smart thermostats use your home's wireless internet service along with advanced algorithms and sensors to control your residential HVAC system. Upgrading to one of these high-tech models can provide you with several practical benefits, including sustainable and convenient living. The following guide highlights why you should install a Wi-Fi thermostat.

Why Get Thermostat With Wi-Fi Connectivity?

1. Remote Operation 

Wi-Fi thermostats communicate with an app you can download to your smartphone or tablet. As a result, you can control your residential HVAC system from your device, preventing the need to get up to make adjustments. If you accidentally leave your system running when you go out of town, or if you want to arrive home to a cooler space, you can shut the power off or on remotely. 

2. Sustainable Use

Smart thermostats typically provide homeowners with efficiency tips, such as recommended minimum and maximum indoor temperatures during the summer, minimizing utility expenses. They also permit you to create a detailed schedule for when your system should run, which may prevent energy waste. These thermostats also have vacation mode settings that prompt your residential HVAC system to use the least amount of energy to keep your home comfortable, reducing your carbon footprint.

3. Adjustable Settings

Wi-Fi thermostats are compatible with most home automation systems, allowing you to operate and adjust your HVAC system with voice commands. This convenient feature prevents you from getting out of bed or interrupting family time to check the thermostat. Additionally, hands-free voice commands permit you to program the thermostat while completing other household tasks.

4.  Notifications

Smart thermostats can also send notifications to your devices that inform you about the quality of your indoor air. For instance, if the temperature suddenly drops or the humidity level rises, you'll receive an alert. These thermostats also provide maintenance reminders, such as when to replace or clean the filter.
