The programmable thermostat was a genuine revolution for homeowners looking to take command of their heating and cooling systems. Being able to “set it and forget it” allows us to wake up and fall asleep in comfort, arrive home from work or vacation to a home that’s just right, and save energy along the way. Today we’re going to tell you how pairing a WiFi thermostat with your existing system can take that revolutionary control to the next level, whether you’re at home or away.
Severe weather might keep you in Chicago longer than you’d planned, or delay your regular commute – and this is where the innovation of WiFi thermostats really shines. Whether you’re stuck in another city or just on the other side of town, with a WiFi thermostat, you can pull out your smart phone, tablet or laptop and with a few simple clicks push the setback time out to maximize energy savings until you’re home again. This same functionality can allow you to bump your boiler into frost protection mode when there’s an unexpected cold snap during your trip to the Bahamas.
WiFi thermostats offer a number of other convenient perks over ordinary programmable thermostats, including:
- Email or text alert for filter changes based on run time rather than arbitrary calendar dates.
- Email or text alerts for high and low temperature warnings.
- Free app or web management of multiple WiFi thermostats.
- A view of local weather conditions from the thermostat interface.
- Remote-adjustment of fan speeds; and more.
