Remember the days before Wi-Fi? When we all had to plug our computers into ethernet cables? Or back when we had to dial up a connection? Those days are long gone, and now we can stay connected to the internet no matter where we are. That kind of constant connection brings with it some pros and cons, but the way Wi-Fi integrates into your Savannah, Georgia, home only brings benefits.
Wi-Fi thermostats connect you to your home’s comfort and efficiency no matter where you are, so you can always be in control. Here are two ways a Wi-Fi thermostat will change your life.
Remote Comfort Control
In most ways, a Wi-Fi thermostat accomplishes what any regular thermostat would. But with Wi-Fi connectivity, you no longer have to press the buttons on your thermostat to adjust the temperature. You don’t even have to be home! Through the use of a smartphone or tablet, you can warm or cool your home from work, the grocery store, or your favorite vacation getaway.
Maybe you like to keep your home a little warmer while you’re away to save money, but you hate having to sit in a muggy house while the AC kicks in. With a Wi-Fi thermostat, you can adjust the temperature before you leave work, and by the time you get home, your house will be cool and comfortable.
Higher Energy Efficiency
Believe it or not, having more control over when and how your home is cooled no matter where you are actually increases the energy efficiency of your system. Plus, most Wi-Fi thermostats collect energy usage information and report it back to you. That way, you can see how and where you’re using energy and make the adjustments necessary to become more efficient. A consistently efficient HVAC system keeps your home more comfortable longer.
Wi-Fi has connected you to everything else, so why not increase comfort and efficiency in your life by connecting to your home as well? To have a smart thermostat installed, call Byrd Heating and Air Conditioning at 912-373-8447.
