How can Wi-Fi thermostats benefit homeowners? Let us count the ways. As smart technology continues to enhance how we live and work, it just makes sense that we’d be using it extensively for controlling home comfort. Now that summer vacation time is arriving, it’s no surprise that homeowners not only use a Wi-Fi thermostat to control the temperature in their primary home, but also for that summer getaway bungalow on the beach, in the mountains or at the lake.
Here are some of the many benefits of Wi-Fi thermostats, whether you’re at home or your home away from home.
- Sometimes it can be stressful trying to figure out what the local weather will do and to set the thermostat accordingly. Say you’re leaving Indiana in the summer and it’s temperate, but then a heat wave arrives while you’re away and you’d like to set the thermostat down for the benefit of pets and plants. With a Wi-Fi thermostat, it’s no problem. Consult the app on your smart device and adjust accordingly. The same is true for your vacation home: You’d like the temperature to be cool when you arrive, so you just turn down the thermostat as you’re approaching your destination.
- A smart thermostat at your vacation home can send you the local temperature highs and lows and other weather information, so you can make a more informed decision about what kind of clothing to pack.
- It’s not cheap to run the air conditioning or heating at two homes, but a Wi-Fi thermostat can help you do so more efficiently. Turn the thermostat up or down for optimum efficiency, depending on local weather as reported through your app.
- Depending on the kind of sensors you have with your thermostat, you may also be able to adjust the humidity in your home as needed. If local conditions are rainy and humid, you can order your HVAC system to adjust the relative humidity in the home downward.
