Before you get down on yourself, we want to know, do you have a WiFi thermostat? No? Hm, seeing any connection here?
Bigelow WiFi Thermostats
Obviously having a WiFi thermostat translates to a warm, cozy place to come home to. Although it doesn’t cook for you, it pretty much does everything else.
Follow us as you walk you through your new life with a WiFi thermostat. You be the judge.
Benefits of a WiFi Thermostat
Let’s be frank. Owning a WiFi Thermostat makes life so much easy. At first, you have to pay attention to it more than you did your previous thermostat. But, after a few weeks, it starts to take care of itself.
Benefit #1: It Remembers & Adjusts To Your Schedule
Imagine waking up to a warm, cozy home every morning, without having the heat on all night. Your WiFi thermostat learns your schedule and
knows when to turn on or off.
Every day, when you wake up for work at 6 am, it will turn on at 5:45 to make sure your wake up to the perfect temperature.
It feels nice to be able to walk around in your pajamas and not have to carry around a blanket, huh?
Coffee pots on. Time to jump in the shower and get the day started!
Benefit #2: You Can Control It From Your Smartphone
Pretty much every WiFi thermostat has an app you can use to turn it on or off. Use this handy tool to see energy usage reports, or even receive notifications when you need heating system service.
When you integrate the smart thermostat with other Home Automation tools, you can control everything in your house – from cooling and heating to door locks and security cameras.
Wow. Say goodbye to the days of forgetting to turn off the heat or AC.
Benefit #3: Motion Sensors Alert Thermostat To Turn On
This is the best benefit for large homeowners. That’s owners of large homes not… you know what we mean. With sensors scattered throughout the house, WiFi thermostat will be notified when there are people in the room.
Think about it. Everyone is home, but they are all in the living room watching movies.
The smart sensors will turn off the heating or cooling on the entire second floor, registering that there is no one upstairs.
This perk ensures that your home is as energy efficient and comfortable as possible.
Then there’s less impact on the environment because of the decreased energy usage. That’s how you kill two birds with one stone!
Benefit #4: It Saves You Money On Your Energy Bill
It will only cool or heat where necessary and when necessary. Most of these WiFi thermostats are designed specifically to save you money.
As your thermostat utilizes motion sensors and learns your schedule at home, your bills will slowly diminish.
Say goodbye to wasting your hard earned paycheck on your energy bill.
