Even in the mild Portland-area climate, it can be hard to maintain indoor temperatures that are both comfortable and energy efficient. A Wi-Fi thermostat helps you do this even when you’re not at home.
The Wi-Fi Thermostat Difference
A programmable thermostat allows you to select different temperatures for different time periods during the day. Once programmed, the thermostat automatically keeps your home at your preferred temperatures. This lets you run your system at the most efficient temperatures without the hassle of constantly fussing with the thermostat.
The downside is that you can change the thermostat temperatures only when you’re at home. If anything changes while you’re out, you have no way to adjust the thermostat in response. A Wi-Fi thermostat is synced with your home’s Wi-Fi router, allowing it to connect to the Internet. This lets you adjust the thermostat from anywhere through a computer or an app on your smartphone.
What a Wi-Fi Thermostat Can Do for You
Convenient monitoring — Your thermostat will send an alert to your smartphone if your home’s temperature rises or falls outside your selected range or if the system shuts off unexpectedly. This way you’ll be able to keep your home’s temperatures under control to avoid energy waste.
Comfort you can count on — If your plans change while you’re away from home, you can easily adjust your thermostat temperature as necessary from your office or anywhere else. When you find out you’ll be getting home earlier than expected, you can select a temperature that will ensure your home is comfortable when you get in. End up staying out late? Select a more energy-efficient temperature for that time.
Carefree travel — During your vacations and weekends away, you can rest assured your thermostat will let you know if a problems arises. If the weather changes suddenly, you can adjust your thermostat settings as necessary to protect your home from damage.
