A smart or Wi-Fi thermostat is a great way to improve home comfort and save energy. However, in order to operate it properly, you need the right app. Which HVAC apps are the best and what can they do? It depends on which thermostat you have. Here are some of the brands with the best HVAC apps.
Used with the Nest Learning Thermostat. Since learning thermostats are designed to require minimal programming, the app is easy to use, with a simple and intuitive user interface. It also lets you view your system’s energy use over the past 10 days to see where you can save.
Unlike many HVAC apps, this one can operate several different thermostat brands, including Radio, 3M Filtrete, and Current Innovations. It works well with zoning systems and shows you the temperature of each room at a glance.
Honeywell Total Connect Comfort.
No list of HVAC apps would be complete without Honeywell. They make some of the most popular thermostats on the market. In addition to Honeywell, this app can also be used with EConnect, Prestige, Prestige IAQ, and Wireless FocusPRO systems. It displays both indoor and outdoor temperatures, along with a five-day forecast. It lets you set the temperature for multiple thermostats and humidifiers/dehumidifiers at once, and it can alert you if the temperature passes a certain threshold.
As its name implies, this app is designed for saving energy. Used with a 3M 50 Wi-Fi thermostat, it has multiple settings for efficiency, from high to low, so you can choose how much you save. It can also function with a variety of other appliances, from your TV to your cellphone charger to your lights, to provide energy savings throughout your home.
These are just some of the HVAC apps that can improve your home comfort and savings. Talk to your HVAC technician to see which app is best for your home.
