A smart thermostat can give you a new level of control over your home’s comfort. If you’re interested in carefully managing comfort levels and energy use both at home and while you’re away, a Wi-Fi-controlled system might be what you need for your Baltimore, Maryland, home. Learn more about the benefits and expenses associated with using a smartphone to control your thermostat.

How it Works

When you have a thermostat you can control using Wi-Fi, you can operate your heating or cooling system via a connected app on your smartphone. This means you can adjust the temperature remotely if you’re going to be staying late in the office or spending the night away from home. You don’t have to keep heating or cooling an empty space. Simply control your thermostat from afar.

What it Costs

The initial cost of installing a Wi-Fi thermostat is the first consideration if you’re interested in transitioning to this technology. You will need to replace your current thermostat with a new system that is compatible with your HVAC system.

You can choose from many types of smart thermostats, and each one works differently. Some thermostats charge a monthly subscription fee if you want to use the remote control features to adjust the settings via your smartphone. Other options connect to apps that don’t charge a monthly fee. Investigate your options before buying to find the one that’s best for you.

The Benefits

There are some worthwhile benefits to investing in an app-controlled thermostat. You’ll have more detailed insights into your energy usage and constant control over how you manage your home’s temperature. This means you can override your teenager’s settings even when you’re away if you’re concerned about energy efficiency. And you’ll always be able to adjust your thermostat appropriately to minimize energy use in an unoccupied house.
