Homeowner uses smartphone to control temperature of their Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat.

If your home isn’t equipped with a Wi-Fi thermostat, there are some valuable benefits you could be missing out on. Installing a Wi-Fi thermostat provides you with greater control of your home temperature, which can help you save money on heating and cooling costs, too. Below, the Carrier® experts at RJ Heating and Air Conditioning provide insight into how helpful a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat can be. Call us if you have questions or are ready to discuss installation at 414-463-1140.

Benefit #1: Greater Temperature Control

Most of us spend several hours every day out of the house, whether for work or school. Instead of simply lowering your home temperature for the day before you leave, you can set up a program to automate this for you. This is especially helpful in the winter because you can run a program that ensures the temperature is comfortable when you return.

This benefit is also helpful at night. Instead of having to get up and manually set your thermostat to the temperature you prefer for sleep, you can easily do so right from your mobile device—or set up a program to automatically lower the temperature at bedtime.

A Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat is also necessary if you plan to set up zoning in your house. The thermostat will allow you to control each zone separately based on your comfort needs.

Benefit #2: Plan for the Unexpected

Even if you’ve set a program, you can easily adjust it no matter where you are. Gone for the weekend but are delayed coming home? That’s no problem when you have a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat. The same applies if there’s a sudden temperature change and you need to adjust your program accordingly. A Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat makes it easy to change your current settings anytime, anywhere—with the tap of a few buttons. Some newer models can even detect these changes automatically and make the change for you.

Benefit #3: Reduce Energy Costs

The best part about having more control of your home temperature while you’re away is the money you’ll save on heating and cooling costs. By only using the energy you need, you’ll see a reduction in energy expenses over time. Some Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats even allow you to see your usage in real-time, so you can make changes if you feel it’s necessary.
