Your Thermostat Upgrade

You have two options when it comes to upgrading your thermostat. We’re going to break down the differences between them here:

Wi-Fi Thermostats

A Wi-Fi thermostat is what you need when you want a better level of control over your home’s HVAC system. Wi-Fi thermostats are so great because they allow you to program the thermostat from anywhere in the world. This means that you can start warming up your house before you even get home. You can kiss goodbye those chilly evenings after you first hit the door. Wi-Fi thermostats optimize your time and energy.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are like Wi-Fi thermostats, but they have the added perk of “learning” how to control the temperature of your home. A smart thermostats start to monitor your habits as soon as it’s installed in your house. Smart thermostats pick up on when you like to turn your HVAC system on and off, what your preferred temperatures are, and the system can even note places where you can optimize energy use. Smart thermostats work to help you save time, energy, and money when it comes to heating and cooling your home.

If you’re ready to get a new thermostat, but you’re unsure if you want a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat (and you can combine both), we’ll walk you through the best options. We know it can be a little confusing when there are so many options. But we will make sure to move you in the right direction toward what you need.
