These thermostats are the last word in convenience, allowing you to operate your HVAC system from near or far. Just load an app on a smart device, and enjoy the ease of lowering or raising your home’s temperature as needed. You can even opt for notifications about local weather that allow you to make smart decisions about thermostat settings. You can also create a schedule through the app to automatically raise or lower temperatures during those periods when you’re away from home or sleeping, so that you don’t use as much energy. Wi-fi thermostats have the added advantage of being easier to operate than the programmable models.
Air purifiers, also known as air cleaners, come in many different guises, and are designed to deal with a variety of pollutants that adversely affect indoor air quality, including mold, pet dander, dust, volatile organic compounds, dust and others.
