Why Wireless Thermostats Are Worth It

studio-shot-of-modern-thermostatYou’re looking at your thermostat mounted over there on the wall and you’re starting to have your doubts. These days, you’ve realized you have to babysit the system much more than you’d like to just to get the comfort you’re used to at home. This isn’t a good sign and it’s a clear indicator that you should upgrade to a wireless thermostat in Lake Jackson, TX

When we talk to homeowners about this upgrade, we get many questions surrounding the work, the reasons, and the method. We’re here to answer all your questions today. We’re unique because we’re a team of HVAC professionals who understand that information is just as important as the  services we provide. Let’s get into it below…

What Is a Wireless Thermostat?

Let’s start by defining exactly what a wireless thermostat is. A wireless thermostat is a thermostat that has wireless capabilities. They employ the use of satellite units to expand the range of your home’s central thermostat. This means that they don’t have to be hardwired into your use for ease of use and accuracy. 

This also means that you can program it from anywhere in the world that has Wi-Fi capabilities or Internet access. The beauty of this is that your wireless thermostat eliminates a lot of user error. It’s incredibly precise and also helps you improve your energy efficiency and comfort. 

Why Is It Better Than a Standard Thermostat?

Another question we get surrounding wireless thermostats is why they’re better than standard or manual thermostats. Manual thermostats are older, non digital thermostats. These are the thermostats that use dials or switches to control the temperature of your home. We don’t recommend these because they’re not exactly precise. Let’s face it, sometimes it’s hard to tell whether the arrow is pointing at 73 ot 74. Precision is necessary when you want a system that’s going to get you precise care. 

Standard thermostats are digital thermostats. Although these units are programmable, they don’t account for the curveballs that life throws us. Maybe you have your thermostat programmed to turn your heater off from the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. because no one is at home. This doesn’t account for those nights where the family member that normally arrives home around 3 is busy and doesn’t get home until 5. In situations like this, your heater would have been up, running, and heating a home for two hours for no reason. Wi-Fi thermostats let you avoid troubles like this.  

Do I Really Need a Professional to Install It?

Yes, you really need a professional to install your home’s thermostat. We know that if you search “Wi-Fi thermostat installation” on your favorite search engine, you’re going to be met with articles and videos instructing you how to install this system on your home for less. We can promise you that this isn’t a wise choice. Professionals are the only ones who have the expertise necessary to install your new thermostat and get the job done right the very first time.
