You’ve probably wondered at times how you ever did without your smart phone. That’s what many homeowners are also thinking these days when it comes to their Wi-Fi thermostats. These ingenious devices just vastly simplify what used to be one of the major worries of leaving home for extended periods: what to do about the temperature while you’re away?
If you haven’t yet upgraded to a Wi-Fi thermostat, maybe it’s time. Here’s a rundown on some of the major reasons homeowners are losing the digital and programmable models of yesterday and switching to a Wi-Fi thermostat.
Benefits of Wi-Fi Thermostats in Your Home
- Change the temperature, no matter where you are.
Whether you forgot to lower the thermostat for Fido in your primary home before you set off for your beach getaway, you can do it from afar with a Wi-Fi thermostat. Just open the app you will have downloaded on your smart device to operate the thermostat, make your adjustment and voila!, it’s done. You can also monitor local weather conditions at home or at your vacation destination to see how you need to change the thermostat throughout your vacation.
- A Wi-Fi thermostat can help you pack sensibly.
Study high and low temperatures at your vacation destination to see what clothing you need to pack. You can also have weather updates sent directly to you through your app.
Program the thermostat to turn the system up or down when you’re asleep or away, when you require less conditioned air. Be sure not to adjust up or down more than five degrees; you want to ensure the system keeps turning on.
- Set your vacation destination home’s thermostat to just the right temperature prior to your arrival.
Winter or summer, it’s nice to have your vacation home just the right temperature prior to your arrival so you’re nice and comfy.
