Wi-Fi controlled thermostats allow you to adjust the temperature of your home remotely, using the Internet on any device, including desktop computers, laptops, iPads and tablets and mobile phones. Wi-Fi controlled thermostats may seem like an unnecessary luxury, but there are many reasons to consider having one installed in your home.
If, for nothing else, it's very convenient to be able to control your home's temperature settings without having to physically walk to the controls. When you leave for work or school in the morning, you can change the temperature from your phone or your computer.
Many units also have free apps that can be downloaded on your smartphone, tablet or computer, making access that much easier. These apps also allow you to manage multiple thermostats at once, no matter where they are located. For example, if you own a business or rental property.
Having a Wi-Fi controlled thermostat is not only extremely convenient, but it can also save you money. Heating and cooling can account for a large portion of your home's utility bills. Having said that, if you had a way to save money on your heating and cooling, would you even think twice?
Wi-Fi controlled thermostats can help you control the temperature of your home remotely from anywhere, making it easier to adjust the temperature when you're not at home, thus saving you energy.
Reducing your carbon footprint
In addition to saving money, you can also reduce the effect you have on the environment. Having your heat on all day and all night in the winter (or your air conditioning in the summer) can seem like a great idea - and at times it may even seem necessary.
However, remember to consider the effect on our earth as well. Turning down the heat or A/C when you're at work for several hours a day can make a significant impact. Then, simply adjust the temperature again before you go home - your home won't take that long to heat back up (or cool back down)!
With many apps, you can set reminders for yourself for maintenance, and view the life of your unit until replacements or service checks are needed.
A Wi-Fi controlled thermostat may seem like an unnecessary investment for your home. However, it can help you reduce your energy bill and your carbon footprint.
