Wireless thermostats have many benefits, most of which make your HVAC system work more effectively while saving you time and money. Let’s look at some of the perks of wireless thermostats.
A wireless thermostat is programmable, meaning you have more control over your heating and cooling systems. You can set the program to have a lower or higher temperature while you’re gone, or at night while you’re sleeping, conserving energy. Having a thermostat that allows you to control it through your smartphone gives you even more say over the temperature of your home. Even if you’ve forgotten to change the program before you’ve left the house for an extended period, like on vacation, you can still change the temp using your smartphone, no matter how far away you are.
With a wireless thermostat, you can receive alerts via email or text when your home reaches a temperature that you’re uncomfortable with. So if you’re on vacation and left the heat off but the temperature outside drops unexpectedly, you can turn your heat on to prevent the pipes from freezing.
A wireless thermostat can send you reports on your energy usage and offer tips on how to conserve energy. For example, if you tend to use more energy at night, your app may suggest turning down your heat a few degrees before bed.
A wireless thermostat can alert you to possible system failures before they happen. Any mechanical problems may be able to be prevented by having your system inspected if the thermostat alerts you to a problem. Preventative maintenance could save you a lot of money in the long run and ensure your HVAC system is always working efficiently.
