Wi-Fi Thermostats: A Cool Way to Keep Your Energy Bill from Overheating

It’s starting to get chilly out there! And with a couple of warm days sneaking in here and there, your HVAC system is probably working overtime. You’re spending all that extra money and energy trying to keep up with this unpredictable weather — but you don’t have to be. By upgrading to a qualifying Wi-Fi thermostat, you can take advantage of rebates in the short-term — and lots of other energy and cost bene?ts in the long-term.

Why Should I Get a Wi-Fi Thermostat?

It can be hard to know how to set your thermostat when you leave for the day. You don’t want to come home to a freezing house, but letting your heat run all day seems pretty ine?cient, too.

But what if you could control the temperature in your home right from your phone? Wi-Fi thermostats let you do exactly that. No matter where you are, and what the weather decides to do each morning, you’ll be able to adjust your thermostat remotely to make sure your house stays comfortable.  Not all heating and cooling systems are the same, however. Check out our helpful guidelines for getting the most from your Wi-Fi Thermostat based on your specific HVAC system.

But that isn’t the only perk. A Wi-Fi thermostat can provide more control over your home. For example, many Wi-Fi thermostats give you access to geofencing and zoning, which means you can set speci?c temperatures for certain rooms or areas of your home. Doing so will optimize your energy use and keep your money in your pocket where it belongs.

And that’s not the end of the bene?ts. A Wi-Fi thermostat can improve your home’s air quality by letting you know when your ?lters need to be changed or alerting you to schedule regular HVAC maintenance. Some Wi-Fi thermostats even include a humidity sensor, which can help keep your home comfortable.

So, why wait? Make the switch to a Wi-Fi thermostat today and check out our rebate page to start saving money and reaping the bene?ts of this great, energy-saving technology.
