An energy-efficient HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system will keep your home comfortable while cutting your utility bills. But the best system isn’t just efficient when it’s operating – it also knows when it doesn’t need to run. It’s no secret that programmable thermostats save energy and money, but the wireless, wi-fi enabled Ecobee takes smart climate control to a whole new level.
The Ecobee offers all the functions you’d expect from a high-end programmable thermostat, including timed heating and cooling modes and variable temperature settings. Its wireless connection to a home’s HVAC system makes installation a breeze (no pun intended), and the Ecobee web portal allows homeowners to access its settings anytime, from anywhere via an internet connection.
It’s a bit more expensive than other programmable thermostats on the market, but it offers a host of advanced features, like local weather information and timed fan controls. And for users that travel frequently, or want to ensure efficient temperature control in a vacation home or rental property, the Ecobee could be the perfect solution.
The Ecobee Wireless Programmable Wi-Fi Thermostat is available for about $330 at Amazon.
