Could a Wi-Fi Thermostat Be Right For Your Home

Could Wi Fi Stat Be Right For Your Home 2

Your Wall is About To Get A Lot Smarter. The smart thermostat that lives up to the name. The Côr® thermostat is simply the biggest idea in home energy management since, well, ever. Its built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity lets you control your home comfort from across the room or across the country.

Since most people are always connected to their smart phones, the heating and cooling industry has designed a thermostat which can be controlled easily from this device. As a result, we now have the Wi-Fi thermostat. But, before you determine if a Wi-Fi thermostat is right for you, let’s take a look at some of the other options for controlling the temperature in your home.

Traditional Thermostats - If you live in an older home, you may have one of these. These units are controlled manually, meaning you have to adjust the temperature yourself. While this seems easy enough, studies have shown that these older devices aren’t very precise when it comes to controlling temperatures. This could leave you with a home that isn’t properly heating or cooling.

Programmable Thermostats - These devices are a step up from traditional thermostats. They allow the user to set different temperatures for different times during the day. You could make the temperature in your home a little less comfortable if no one is going to be home. Then set a second temperature setting so by the time you arrive home, the thermostat would have automatically run the heating or cooling system to help adjust the temperature to your desired setting.

Wi-Fi Thermostats - While programmable thermostats make it easy to control the temperature in your home at pre-determined points of the day, you aren’t able to adjust the unit if you aren’t there. With a Wi-Fi thermostat, you will be able to adjust the temperature in your home wherever you can be online. Plus they offer better monitoring capabilities, energy savings and better comfort.
