Match Your AC With a New Thermostat

Replacing your old thermostat isn’t really a requirement when you get a new AC installed. It’s usually a case of “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” But we’re not talking about broken thermostats, we’re talking about old ones.

Old thermostats, from analog to digital ones, just don’t have the capabilities that newer thermostats do. Even thermostats with Wi-Fi capacity, or programmable systems will go a long way towards improving many aspects of your home.

Instead of giving you a sales pitch on how wonderful these systems are, we’d like to discuss the topic of Wi-Fi thermostats in Cedar Rapids with a more realistic approach. We want to explain that you’ll get more out of your HVAC technology, your life, and you’ll feel a lot better when you have a thermostat that works hard for you.

No More Out-of-Home Emergencies

Remember that one time where you went on vacation and you forgot to turn the thermostat up during the summer? You likely returned to a pretty substantial energy bill and a worn-out air conditioner. And the biggest bummer of all was that you didn’t get to feel any of it!

Well, that can’t really happen with a Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat. These systems are designed to be controlled from a smartphone or a tablet whenever you have an internet connection. So, whether you’re at the airport or you just checked in to the hotel, you can control the comfort and efficiency of your HVAC system at home.

Programmable to Your Preferences

Every family has their preferences. Some like their kitchens warm, some enjoy a cool basement, and others just care about comfortable temperatures at night. All of this can be programmed with your smart thermostat.

You basically tell it how you like your home’s temperature and the timeframes that you like it cooler or warmer. Then, it will automatically send signals to the system on a regular basis. All you need to do is sit back and relax!

Tighter Temperature Control

Taking all the cool and convenient parts of a smart thermostat out of the equation, they just work better. A smart thermostat is equipped with a tighter and more communicative system, meaning it will be able to turn your AC or heating system on much faster than an old analog or digital thermostat.

It’s also more responsive to temperature changes, detecting them much faster than an old thermostat and letting your HVAC system know so it can get to work. You don’t even have to do anything and you’d still get more out of a smart thermostat.


Instead of having to manually turn the thermostat up or down at night, wouldn’t it feel better to just do the things you need to and take care of yourself instead? Take that bath, do some meal prep for the week, and let your thermostat handle the temperature in your home.

That’s what you get with a smart or Wi-Fi connected thermostat. It learns your temperature preferences so that it can just set things automatically to be efficient, comfortable, or just to do what you tell it to. And all of this can be done from your phone!
