New HVAC Technology: What to Know about WiFi Thermostats

Space ships going to other galaxies! Time travel! WiFi Thermostats!

Of these three futuristic things, one of them is real. That’s right, WiFi thermostats are new on the market and you should know what all they can do! Let’s talk about their capabilities and why they’re awesome to have in your home.

Control the Temp From an App

A lot of the WiFi thermostats on the market these days have an associated app that you can download on your smartphone. This comes in extremely handy, if you’re coming back from a vacation. Let’s say  that you’ve set the temperature in your home to be really low – to save money on your bills when you’re away. However, when you’re about half an hour away you can turn on your smartphone, open the app, and bump up the temperature in your home. That way, your home is cozy and comfortable by the time you finally arrive.

Set a Schedule

On your app, you can also put together a schedule. This does the automatic adjusting for you. Let’s say you leave the house at 9 a.m. and get home around 6 p.m. You can set a schedule for your air conditioning unit to lower the temperature at 9 exactly and to start heating up your home around 5:30 p.m.

The Ultimate Benefit of a WiFi Thermostat

The best thing about this new HVAC technology is that is really works for you and your schedule. You adjust it from your phone to be the right temp for you at the right time. It’s the ultimate tool in customizing your home’s comfort. Call the Robert B. Payne, Inc. team to get information on WiFi thermostats: 540-373-5876.
