The Benefits of a Learning Thermostat
A learning thermostat like the Google Nest Learning Thermostat takes your thermostat upgrade one step further by learning and remembering when and how you change the temperature. This feature allows the thermostat to adjust the climate of your home based on your behaviour. For example, if you tend to turn the temperature up when you go to bed, the thermostat will remember this and adjust the temperature accordingly.
Communicating Wi-Fi Thermostats
Communicating Wi-Fi thermostats take things one step further by allowing the thermostat to communicate directly with your home’s furnace and air conditioning system. This means that when your heating or cooling system is experiencing an issue, your thermostat will notify you of the error. These thermostats may come with a slightly higher price tag, but they tend to be more energy-efficient and convenient to use. Communicating thermostats only work with the correct corresponding communicating furnace and air conditioners. Pro Tip! If you have communicating equipment, you should not replace your communicating thermostat with a smart thermostat from a different manufacturer.
