WiFi and Smart Thermostats in Salem, OR

Chances are that when someone says the term, “heating system,” your mind’s eye takes you to images of a furnace firing away, the ductwork in your attic, or the vent in your room. The same goes for “air conditioner”—you might envision the traditional central system, or even think about your ductwork. You probably gloss right over your thermostat. That’s why we’re here to highlight the importance of this aspect of your HVAC system. Your thermostat can greatly impact the comfort of your home—this is a fact that surprises many homeowners. Your thermostat is the only direct contact point between you and your HVAC system, so it needs to remain precise and fast-acting.

If you haven’t upgraded your thermostat in a while, now is the time. Thermostat technology has advanced greatly in just the past few years. Companies create new models with the goal of saving energy and money.

If you’re ready for a thermostat replacement, contact Advantage Heating & Air Conditioning. Oregon’s best since 1992, We Bring Our A Game.

Digital, Wireless, And Smart Thermostats: What’s the Difference?

Let’s break down the differences:

  • Digital Thermostat: This is a standard thermostat that shows the temperature in your home on a digital display.
  • Wireless Thermostat: This is a step above a digital thermostat. It has the added benefit of providing remote Wi-Fi access to your thermostat so that you can change the temperature of your home from your phone, tablet, or computer anywhere in the world with wireless access.
  • WiFi or Smart Thermostat: A smart thermostat also has wireless thermostat capabilities with the added bonus of "smart" features. These smart thermostats allow this thermostat to pick up on patterns and learn how and when you like to heat your home. It can anticipate your needs and even underscore opportunities for you to save on energy.

If you’re ready for a thermostat replacement, we’re the right team to perform your thermostat installation.

Why You Need an Upgrade

All that above sounds great, right? But you’re still happy with your current thermostat. So why should you upgrade?

  • Energy Savings: After you install a smart thermostat in your home, it spends the first few weeks "learning" how you like to heat or cool your home. After it recognizes patterns, it begins to highlight opportunities for you to save, i.e. suggesting milder temperature settings.
  • Cost Savings: The energy savings you experience in this system directly equate to cost savings too!
  • Remote Access: We mentioned above that smart thermostats have the same Wi-Fi capabilities as wireless thermostats. This is true. In addition to this, you can also see user-friendly breakdowns of your energy consumption with most models which can help you employ better heating and cooling practices in the future.
