Learn About the Benefits of a New WIFI Thermostat
Most homeowners in Lorton, VA want to reduce energy use and lower their electricity and natural gas bills. An easy way to accomplish these goals without sacrificing comfort or convenience is to install a new WIFI thermostat. Also called smart thermostats, these systems use your home’s wireless internet to send and receive information and to control the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment. Let’s explore some of the benefits you could gain from a WIFI thermostat.
Track Your Energy Use
Smart thermostats provide you with insight into your home’s energy use. You can view graphs of how much energy your home’s heating and cooling system is using at any time of the day or night. Track the energy use over a day, week, or month. You can also compare the same month from one year to the next. Smart thermostats also remind you about maintenance, such as when to change the air filter, which also helps lower heating and cooling energy use.
Adjust Settings and Temperatures From Anywhere
With a WIFI thermostat, you can turn the heating or AC on or off from your phone. You can do this from any location. Through the app on your smartphone, you can also make schedule and temperature adjustments.
Save Money and Optimize Comfort Through Geofencing
Smart thermostats learn your schedule. This allows them to make automatic adjustments in order to optimize your comfort. The thermostat and app receive periodic software updates for their decision-making algorithms. Many WIFI thermostats also offer geofencing. The thermostat communicates with your smartphone. As you approach your home, the thermostat starts heating or cooling cycles. Your home reaches your preferred temperature upon your arrival. By reducing heating and cooling cycles when nobody is home, the smart thermostat saves you up to $900 per year without affecting your comfort, notes Energy Star.
