Should You Upgrade Your Thermostat?

Are you wondering if you should upgrade your home’s thermostat? It’s not like your thermostat can open up its mouth and tell you when it’s time. You need to know the signs and we’re here to help you with that. Here are some signs you should upgrade your thermostat:

  • You’ve had your current thermostat for about 10 years or more.
  • You have trouble getting an accurate thermostat read.
  • You can’t get your thermostat to turn on or off when you need it to.
  • You’re paying too much for your HVAC services.
  • Your thermostat isn’t digital.

You should definitely upgrade your thermostat if this is what’s going on in your home. We’ll help you choose between your main two options.

The Difference Between Smart and Wi-Fi Models

Now, let’s get into the main difference between smart and Wi-Fi models of thermostats.

Wi-Fi Thermostats

Wi-Fi thermostats are essentially digital thermostats with the added capability of Wi-Fi accessibility. You might not see the immediate benefit of this, but this is likely because you don’t realize the strain that human error puts on your thermostat.

How many times have you forgotten to turn off your air conditioner before you left the house? How many times have you chosen a freezing temperature because you came home to a hot house? You can eliminate both of these problems with a Wi-Fi thermostat. If you leave it on, you can turn it off on the go. If you know your home is going to be blazing hot when you come home, you can start cooling it before you reach the door.

Wi-Fi thermostats make your thermostat available to you at all times. It can always be in the palm of your hand and this is important.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats take things to the next level by allowing your thermostat to learn how you like to cool or heat your space. Smart thermostats work for you rather than making you work for them. If you allow them to, they can even start to auto-adjust your thermostat. The thermostat can auto-adjust according to your personal preferences or if you’d like to focus on cost-saving services. Smart thermostats aren’t all built the same. Allow us to help you find the one that best suits you.
