When I first considered switching my thermostat for a WIFI temperature control, I was not happy by the price.
Smart thermostats have a price tag of hundred dollars.
That’s way more expensive than my original plastic dial that I bought from a local hardware store and installed on my own. The WIFI thermostat was so complex that I hired an HVAC supplier to provide the setup. I’ve now used the WIFI thermostat for about a year, and the investment has been recovered in numerous ways. My yearly utility bills are much lower due to less energy waste. I no longer am required to remember to adjust the temperature setting before my family departs the house for the afternoon or goes to bed at night. The thermostat knows our schedule and adjusts temperature accordingly. I’m not spending money to perfectly maintain an empty house, yet my family always comes back to ideal comfort. The thermostat includes sensors that are aware of when we’re almost home and keep track of room occupancy. If I need to alter the program, I have easy access through an app on my smartphone. I can be tucked into bed at night, stuck at the grocery, at my son’s soccer game or lying on a tropical beach. I can simply check on the HVAC system and make adjustments at any time. It’s also convenient that the thermostat alerts me over filter changes and setting up professional maintenance. It notifies me about a temperature fluctuation or a power failure, and further gives a heads up to the local HVAC supplier, which enables remote diagnosis. This all helps to maintain the heating and cooling system operating at is best.
