California has its fair share of older homes form the 1970s and 80s. While these homes are quite unique, they may not always have the best HVAC system components. Let’s say you go to move into your new home, a wonderful single-story with great potential, and you see it has an updated AC system. Great! The problem is though that you have an old sliding thermostat.

While this may not seem problematic at first, it quickly becomes apparent that the old thermostat just can’t quite do the job right. So what are you to do? Replace the thermostat, right? Well, before you go out and grab any thermostat that seems like it might be the right fit, let us tell you about the benefits of opting for a Wi-Fi thermostat.

What is Different About a Wi-Fi Thermostat?

First things first: what makes a wi-fi thermostat so special? A lot of things actually.

For one, Wi-Fi thermostats are going to provide a more accurate reading of the temperature in the home. For another, your thermostat can be programmed to adjust throughout the day so your home stays temperate, rather than keeping it cool when no one is around and wasting energy that could otherwise be saved.

In short, a Wi-Fi thermostat is going to offer you improved home comfort with far less stress.

The Benefits of Wi-Fi Thermostats

Let’s get down into the nitty-gritty here. What are the specific benefits of opting into a Wi-Fi thermostat? There are a few we think you should know about.

  • Improved energy savings: With the help of a Wi-Fi thermostat, you’ll be able to enjoy a decent amount of energy savings. This is possible for a couple of reasons: one being that you can get reports on your energy usage so you can adjust your patterns and use less energy, the second reason is because you can set up programs to optimize your energy use (i.e. setting a program to allow the home to be warmer when no one is home).
  • Better control over your comfort: Your Wi-Wi thermostat has the ability to more accurately detect your home temperature. This means that you will be able to enjoy better home comfort because your thermostat will have a better reading on what the temperature is when the cooling cycle starts and finishes.
  • Remote control capabilities: Your Wi-Fi thermostat is connected to, well, the Wi-Fi. What this means is that you will be able to enjoy remotely controlling your thermostat. You can connect your thermostat to be controllable via your smart home assistant or your phone. This provides the added bonus of allowing you to control your thermostat and adjust your home comfort while you are away.
