The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping rapidly. We will face hostile weather conditions over the next few months, relying on artificial heat to stay warm. Of course a good heating appliance can reduce indoor chills, but to keep your atmosphere, shall we say, cordial, you might want to make a bigger change to your home heating system. With Black Friday Deals happens hot, you can bet there’s a smart thermostat on sale to suit your wallet now and save you money in the long run. We found one in the discount bin that you might like: the Honeywell Home Wi-Fi Smart Color Thermostat and it’s only $100, down from $170 – that’s over 40% off!
This gadget isn’t like the thermostat your parents wouldn’t let you touch. In fact, you don’t even have to touch this one – you can monitor it and control the temperature with the app even when you’re halfway around the world. It’s a feature Amazon shoppers love.
“We just installed our new thermostat this week and so far so good,” shared one of over 10,000 five-star fans. “I love how we can program it from our phones or iPads to set the temperature to whatever we want it to be when we’re awake and asleep.”
“Being cost conscious, I like the idea of turning the heating down when I’m not at home,” said another critical acclaim. “No need to waste money on heating an empty house. Before I get home, I just open the app and turn up the temperature. For scheduling, it will start 30-40 minutes before the scheduled time to slowly increase the temperature instead of blowing the oven until the temperature reaches the desired setting.
And it’s through the app that Honeywell can send you reports on your energy consumption, including monthly averages.
Wrote a five-star fan: “I even get a usage report in my email every month showing how much energy I’m using, allowing me to fine-tune my planned AC consumption to lower my energy bill. “
It is compatible with most heating and air conditioning systems such as forced air pumps and heat pumps with electric back-up. It also has a sleek design and if you really like the aesthetics, you can change the color of the easy-to-read touchscreen to match your decor.
“I bought not just for the looks, which are cool and color-changing, but because it was the first WiFi unit I’ve found that offered a ‘heat pump’ control setting,” another happy customer reported. “Some others I looked at didn’t. Lots of useful features and an easy to read control face.
