If you are on a trip and you decide to extend it another day or come home a day earlier you can quickly make the adjustment from anywhere in the world. Many of the modern WiFi Thermostats also can learn your schedules and set themselves automatically. Doing this makes sure that your system is only running when it is necessary. Setting it properly will certainly save you a lot of money and energy. If there is a problem with your cooling system many of the WiFi thermostats can be set to notify you immediately. Even if you are a thousand miles away you can know what is going on with the system and call for maintenance if needed. Some of the models have voice activated control so you can simply tell it that you are feeling cold and it will automatically make the adjustment for you. It is like having a personal assistant right in your home.
WiFi Thermostats are not very hard to install and many home owners that have basic electrical skills can generally install them in an afternoon. Setting it up to connect to your WiFi network is generally a step-by-step process that isn’t too difficult. If you are not inclined to install it yourself there are many HVAC that would be happy to install it quickly and professionally and they will even help you to set it up and program it for your needs.

Consumer Reports rated these at the top so I bought two. Had them professionally installed, which was good because one of them required an additional wire, that my HVAC person added. small detail, no problem .. The thermostats work great, have great displays, and are controllable from the web and my phone, as well as at the wall. The numbers are large and easy to read and the controls are very simple to navigate. I would recommend highly.
