I’ve had the identical thermostat for well over twenty years.
It’s a big time dial thermostat that provides nothing more than the ability to by hand adjust the temperature. I believe it’s time to upgrade to something a little more new and not as bulky. I’ve been looking into the numerous styles of thermostats on the market. There is wireless, wifi and smart thermostats. I’m amazed by the convenient features on this device. I was initially a bit confused by what some of these features really were though. I decided the smart thermostat has the most. The smart thermostat provides remote access. It can be controlled through an app on the smartphone or tablet, and whether I’m on my favorite chair in our entryway, at our work or sitting on a beach half a world away, I could definitely make some alterations to temperature & get information. Even better, the thermostat will talk to other smart systems in the home, such as smart lights, smart locks & air quality accessories. The Wi-Fi thermostat can be part of a home automation device. Modern thermostats are much more exciting than our outdated plastic dial. They offer full color screen availability, which are simple to understand, & numerous can be customized. A proximity sensor makes certain the screen lights up when someone approaches & then switches off after a short phase of non movement. The thermostat also takes laziness out of it, rather than expecting myself and others to set up a schedule, these smart controls are capable of learning our program & reacting to our location. With geofencing, there is a range set up, & when our phone crosses this range, the thermostat reacts.
