Experience the Convenience of Using a Wi-Fi Thermostat
You’re busy and keeping track of the temperature settings on your Buffalo Grove, IL home’s thermostat isn’t at the top of your priority list. If you’re still using a manual thermostat, now is the time to upgrade to a Wi-Fi thermostat. Let’s take a look at the ways using a smart thermostat makes your everyday life more convenient.
Program It and Forget It
If your schedule is basically the same from one week to the next, you can program the Wi-Fi thermostat once and then forget it. These thermostats allow you to set different heating or cooling schedules for each day of the week and up to four time periods for each day. If your schedule unexpectedly changes, the thermostat’s app on your phone allows you to make quick adjustments from any location.
Optimize Heating and Cooling Cycle Timing
Perhaps you’re out and about for longer than you intended. Many new Wi-Fi thermostats include geofencing features. With geofencing, the thermostat connects to your phone to determine your current location and direction of travel. Once you’re within a specified distance of your home, such as two miles, the thermostat initiates heating or cooling cycles. This allows your home to reach your desired temperature by the time you return, explains Energy Star. Geofencing makes your home more energy-efficient, and it takes place without you having to do anything.
Keep Up With Maintenance
Wi-Fi thermostats remind you when it’s time for system maintenance. You’ll receive an alert on your phone and on the thermostat’s interface when it’s time to replace the air filter. The thermostat will also notify you when it’s time to schedule a springtime air conditioner tune-up and an autumn heating system tune-up. You won’t forget to do these important tasks, and you’ll also save money and avoid comfort disruptions.
