In the Raleigh-Durham area where we can have big temperature swings, a “smart” thermostat could save you quite a bit of money in energy costs. Let's take a closer look!

Three Excellent Benefits of Installing a Smart WiFi Thermostat
    For many, the convenience of being able to control heating and cooling remotely is enough of an incentive to install a WiFi thermostat. And that makes sense because it’s so practical.

    If you’re on a business trip or vacation, you can instantly monitor and adjust your home’s environment. You can reprogram or override settings to meet changing needs, and you can ensure that your home is ready and comfortable when you return.

    Even if you’re at home, it can be very convenient to be able to control temperatures without having to get to the thermostat itself. If you’re in the kitchen cooking, watching the kids playing outside, or even enjoying the game from the comfort of your easy chair, you don’t have to interrupt your activities just to turn the temp up or down. Some brands will even let you change your temperature settings by voice: "Hey Siri, set the temperature to 72 degrees."

    Just the ability to monitor and control the HVAC system gives many homeowners peace of mind that all is well while they’re away. But there are even more features to consider.

    Many Wi-Fi thermostats let you set notifications and alerts if your home’s temperature or humidity hits pre-set highs or lows. And if you’re not available to investigate or make changes, you can have those same notifications and alarms sent to other family members or neighbors.

    Of course, by being able to control and schedule your heating and cooling, you’re managing your energy usage, as well. And doing so can result in significant energy savings, which translates into some extra cash in your pocket.
