The Three Perks of a Wifi-Thermostat


Each month when you receive your utility bill, you look for ways to decrease the monthly payment. You begin to wonder how you can turn off the heating and cooling system before you leave to save energy but also return to a comfortable home. Fortunately, in today’s age of convenience, there’s an app (and thermostat) for that.

Save Money on Your Utility Bill
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average utility bill is $105.65 in New Jersey. The Wifi-thermostat brand, Nest, has found that their product has saved their consumers 10-12% on their heating bill and 15% on their cooling bill and have averaged a savings of $131 to $145 per year.  While programmable thermostats are also used to save money, wifi-thermostats have been found to be easier to use.

You Can Use It From Anywhere
Whether you are on a business trip or taking a long vacation, you can regulate your thermostat from anywhere in the world using the thermostat’s app.  Whether it’s being in bed and having the ability to adjust the temperature without getting up or turning up the heat from California so your cat sitter doesn’t walk into a cold and frigid home.

Another way to save big on your utility bill is to track your energy usage per month.  Nest sends monthly efficiency reports that allow you to see how you stack up against other users.  This fun and competitive challenge can encourage you to save just a bit more on your energy and heating and cooling bill.

There are a number of wifi-thermostats present in today’s marketplace including the Nest, SensiWi-fi Thermostat and the Ecobee3 Wifi thermostat.  As a Nest Certified Professional, TempControl will be happy to install a Nest into your home and offer a free Nest with the purchase of a new heating or cooling system.
