Get Smart with Your Thermostat

Using smartphone for thermostat

Posted: April 3, 2018

For years now, we have been telling our customers that one of the easiest ways to save money and remain comfortable is to replace your old manual thermostat with a high-quality programmable thermostat, which lets you “set it and forget it.” You can program in different day, night and weekend temperature settings to help you conserve a lot of energy.

These days, we’re singing the praises of upgrading to a new wireless comfort control system that allows you to monitor and manage your heating and cooling system from anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection.

The smart thermostats we install allow you to view and change temperature settings, check local weather conditions and more, all from your smartphone, PC or tablet device.

How to connect with your smart thermostat

Once you get your wireless remote smart thermostat installed, you register it online. This enables you to access it from any location. If you’re away from home, you can use your smartphone or tablet to adjust the temperature setting so your home is at the perfect temperature when you arrive.

Technology even allows some models to do all of the work for you. You simply adjust temperatures to your comfort and over the next few days your thermostat will “remember” the temperatures you like and build a schedule based on your patterns. That’s pretty smart!

These thermostats can also send you an email or text alert about a drastic temperature change—and possible equipment failure. Some models can let you know when it’s time to change filters or schedule system maintenance.
