Reasons to Buy a Wi-Fi Thermostat 

Sep 10, 2021 | Uncategorized

Within the last few years, many homeowners in the United States purchased at least one smart device for their homes, and a Wi-Fi thermostat was at the top of the list. This is because more than half of your home’s monthly utility bills are from your HVAC system and thermostat usage. With today’s technology, all homeowners should understand the benefits of investing in a Wi-Fi thermostat. Fortunately, our HVAC friends at Five Star Heating & Cooling Dayton have given us a few reasons why you should equip your home with a Wi-Fi thermostat.

Customizable Schedule

Because a Wi-Fi thermostat connects to the internet, it is easily controlled via an app on your mobile device. Meaning, you can manage the temperature of your home from anywhere inside or outside your home. Remember that even though a Wi-Fi thermostat cannot automatically learn your temperature preferences and make decisions for you, it can help you create a schedule that works for your specific lifestyle.

Remote Control 

One of the most significant benefits of switching to a Wi-Fi thermostat is the fact that you can access your home’s thermostat from anywhere in the world. If you’re like me and still worry about whether your thermostat is set at a proper temperature for your kids and pets while you’re away, switching to a Wi-Fi thermostat can provide homeowners peace of mind when leaving their homes when going to work or on vacation. Additionally, you can set it to alert you when the temperature within your home goes above or below a specific temperature so you can adjust it accordingly. 

Saving Energy Costs

Finally, and arguably the most important benefit when shifting from a traditional thermostat to a Wi-Fi thermostat is your energy savings. On average, homeowners can expect to save up to $150 a year on their home HVAC energy costs when switching to a Wi-Fi thermostat. That equals $12 a month, which may not seem like much; however, in today’s world, every penny counts! 

With technology constantly evolving and making our lives easier, it’s clear to see why more and more homeowners are making the switch from an old thermostat to a modern one.
