The holidays are here, and in addition to gifts for your friends and family members, you might want to think about giving your Orlando, FL home a present or two as well. Consider, for example, the current state of your thermostat. Thermostats are designed to last for decades without trouble, and if yours is more than ten years old, you’ve likely gotten a lot of use out of it. But there’re a drawback to that longevity: older thermostats can’t take advantage of some of the exciting developments in the field of the last few years. You might consider a replacement thermostat as a present to yourself and your family.
What Kind of Benefits?
The biggest advancements in this field have been smart programming and the advent of Wifi technology. They allow new thermostats a huge amount of flexibility as far as what you can do with them
For starters, smart programming allows your thermostat to adjust to real-time conditions that might affect your home temperature. If the humidity outside changes or the weather takes an unexpected turn, a smart thermostat can make significant adjustments to account for the changes. They can also analyze your heating and cooling habits and make similar adjustment to shave precious dollars off of your monthly heating and cooling bills.
Then there’s the notion of remote control. In this case, we’re not talking about a room remote like a TV remote (though such options are available). By connecting to your home’s Wifi network, your thermostat can be controlled from anywhere in the world thanks to an app on your phone. You can turn it on or off, set the temperature and program the settings no matter where you happen to be.
