One of the latest innovations in air conditioning technology is the Wi-Fi thermostat. Air conditioners have been designed to be more and more efficient with each passing year. When combined with a Wi-Fi thermostat (also known as a smart thermostat), you can save hundreds of dollars on your AC costs for the year. In fact, you don’t even have to replace your air conditioner to get a brand new smart thermostat. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of this modern innovation.
Learns Your Preferences
You can set a weekly schedule on most programmable thermostats, but it often only works out if your day-to-day schedule is relatively consistent. With Wi-Fi thermostats, you don’t have to learn any difficult programming settings or worry about a slight schedule change. Smart thermostats learn your preferences within about a week, and they won’t be affected by minor changes throughout a regular week.
Operate It from Your Smart Phone!
The major selling point for the Wi-Fi thermostat is that you can control yours from your smart phone, tablet, or computer. Coming home late from a monthly meeting? Make a quick change from your smart phone so that the automatic settings are delayed! Arriving early from a weekend vacation? Reset the thermostat when the plane lands so that you’re greeted by a cool and comfortable home. The application is easy to use and it can help you track your energy use.
Upgrade Your Thermostat Today
If you’re still dealing with an outdated manual thermostat to control your air conditioner, you can certainly benefit from an upgrade. But even many programmable thermostats cannot help you save energy in the same way that a smart thermostat can. Call your local AC technician for more information and to schedule a thermostat upgrade even if it’s not yet time to replace or service your AC.
