Last weekend the night-time temps dropped, and we finally turned on our heat. We love the period from mid-September until sometime in November when we have no heat or air running. That reduced power bill is so sweet!
We've been in our home for over 12 years now and knock on wood our HVAC is still going strong.
Energy bills can be very pricey certain times of the year. We do our part to try to conserve. We turn off lights and electronics when not in use. My husband is diligent about changing the furnace filters regularly. One thing that we have been contemplating is replacing our thermostats with a new wi-fi smart thermostat. I know…one more gadget to add to the mix, but let me tell you…this has been a smart choice. We were given the opportunity to review the Wiser Air Thermostat.
Isn't it sleek, modern and pretty!
Schneider Electric is the brains behind this Wiser Air thermostat. They have the top weather related service in the world that many organizations use to make critical decisions such as the NFL, Major League Baseball, airlines, utilities and more. For example, their technology is used to make critical decisions like postponing a game or cancelling a flight! Wow! I had no idea!
This technology is also used in this Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat.
Key Features Include:
- Eco IQ™ – it is self-learning and able to select the right temperature for comfort if you chose this option
- Comfort Boost – can instantly warm or cool your home without interfering with your customized schedule
- Wiser Pulse – thermostat has an ambient background glow so you will know if it is heating, cooling or operating on Eco IQ™
- Unit is available in black or white
- Save money without compromising comfort
- Phone app available to control your thermostat while away from your home
It has simple installation and setup. I was pleasantly surprised. Please follow the instructions carefully and start by turning off the breaker to your HVAC. This plate is optional. I love that it comes with it. Most of your older style thermostats are rectangular and vary in size. This covers up where it was. I plan to paint the family room after the holidays so I will most likely repair the wall and not use the plate. So smart that they include it. I do like how the ambient light glows on the white plate though.
Connecting the wires to the new unit is quite easy with the quick connect feature.
This is the fun part…setting it all up and syncing to your phone app!
You will make note of how you connected the wires. Then you will be prompted to configure it on the panel.
Do you notice the red weather alert. The app and the wall unit gives you weather alerts and the current conditions.
This is one of the reasons that I love the app feature so much! You can check the temperature of your home while at work or on vacation. You can make changes directly from your phone! My hubby has always adjusted our HVAC before leaving the home for vacation. This unit allows you to create temps within the system for when you are away. You can change the temperature back to your comfort level before you get back home. No more walking into a cold house and having to manually turn the heat back up!
It's quite attractive! The screen does go into a sleep mode and is off, but as soon as it detects motion by it…..it lights up for viewing!
You can purchase at Amazon.com, HomeDeopt.com, Microsoft Store, New Egg, and BestBuy.com.
I'm looking forward to constantly being cozy in our home. We hope to update that additional two thermostats upstairs as well. You can control multiple thermostats from your phone app.
I encourage you to give the Wiser Air Wi-Fi Thermostat a try today!
