Home comfort is something you want to have complete control over. A rough estimate of the ideal temperature won’t cut it. Today’s technology allows you to maintain the exact temperatures you want so that you can enjoy optimum comfort and energy efficiency. Make sure your home in St. Louis, Missouri, provides the optimum settings for your goals with a Trane Wi-Fi thermostat.
Lower Your Costs From Anywhere
You don’t have to be at home to adjust your thermostat when you have a Wi-Fi–enabled device. A traditional programmable thermostat will begin warming up the house for your arrival after work, even if you’re unexpectedly staying late. With a Wi-Fi thermostat, you can adjust for this change in plans while you’re still at the office. As a result, you’ll enjoy greater energy savings at home even as you log more time on the clock.
You can enjoy the conveniences of a Wi-Fi thermostat while you’re home as well. Perhaps you want to turn up the temperature a few degrees before you get out of bed in the morning or cool things down when you’re having trouble falling asleep. You don’t need to get out of bed to make these adjustments as long as you have your smartphone handy. Simply access the app, and you can adjust the thermostat with a few taps.
Manage Humidity Mindfully
Your home’s humidity levels play a major role in your health and comfort. If you have high humidity in the home, you may notice that it feels warmer than what your thermostat reads. Extremely high humidity can cause wood to warp and wallpaper to peel. High humidity may damage photos and books in your home.
If your humidity levels are too low, you may experience dry, cracked skin and nasal passages. These ailments make it easier to catch colds. Dry air can also lead to static electricity and other discomforts.
With a Trane Wi-Fi thermostat, you can take control of your home’s humidity levels in a powerful way. The Trane ComfortLink II XL950 Control features a built-in humidity sensor. This sensor allows you to keep a constant eye on humidity in your home, whether you’re in it or checking in while you’re away.
Enhance Your Energy Efficiency
You may already know the basics of energy efficiency. You should maintain thermostat settings for longer periods when possible. Set the temperature as close as comfortably possible to the temperatures outside. Adjust your settings to use less energy during periods when you’re typically out of the house or asleep. As a result, you won’t have to remember to make these regular adjustments throughout the day. These core strategies will serve you well with any programmable thermostat.
With Trane’s smart Wi-Fi thermostats, you can do more. The Trane XL624 Control offers an energy-savings mode that lets you improve efficiency with the push of a button. Systems like these handle the minute calculations that can help take your energy savings to another level.
Stay On Top of Maintenance
You can easily overlook HVAC system maintenance in the rush of your daily schedule. But you shouldn’t let items such as air filter changes and tune-ups fall to the wayside. You want to stay on top of these tasks to extend the life of your system and minimize your repairs.
The Trane ComfortLink II XL950 provides helpful reminders. That way, you’ll never forget about scheduling maintenance or changing the filter. When connected to your smartphone, the thermostat can push these notifications to a place where you’ll easily see them.
Upgrading to a new thermostat can dramatically change how you manage your home’s HVAC system. We offer several Trane Wi-Fi thermostats that’ll give you a new level of control over your home comfort.
