This winter, there has been a hype around the new technology with thermostats. We can see how many homeowners would feel uneasy about which brand to buy with learning about all the new thermostats on the market. But, if you think that the look of your thermostat is what you should pay attention to, you are mistaken. As a homeowner, you want to look closely at a couple of things. So, to help out, our five-star technicians at Troy Furnace & Air Conditioning will provide you with information for having an energy-efficient furnace this winter. 

What Is A WiFi Thermostat?

WiFi Thermostat is precisely what it sounds like. You use your WiFi connection to use your thermostat. So if you are inside your bathroom or on a trip, as long as you have WiFi access, you can operate your thermostat. This is perfect for most homeowners who have teenagers around the house. 

What Is A Smart Thermostat?

Smart thermostats are the best on the market because it is convenient for you and your family. In addition, it will read your daily habits and mock your temperature preferences. So you no longer will need to touch anything if you don’t desire to manually. If you see on the thermostat, you’ve to choose Energy Star, and you know that you will be saving money selecting that one. Our exceptional, dependable technicians would be happy to help install a smart thermostat in your home. 

What Are the Benefits of a Smart Thermostat?

The benefits are excellent. Your thermostat will give you the option to schedule what temperature you need it at day by day, and it will turn on automatically. Perhaps you are in meetings during the day, and it’s already getting ready for you, which is very beneficial for any season of the year.

Does the Placement Of Thermostat Matter?

Yes, the placement of your thermostat is an essential piece of the puzzle when upgrading your residential thermostat. You don’t want your system in direct sunlight, near windows or doors. This is because it can give you inaccurate readings, thus causing your system to come on when it’s not needed. The sad truth is, this will not help save you energy, so be sure that you have an expert install this in a central area of your home. 

Now that you have received our feedback about the hype, we hope you have fun shopping for a thermostat that works best for your preferences.
