These days, home automation is becoming more and more mainstream. Our devices and appliances are being networked together to provide us with seamless control over all aspects of our homes, turning them into “smart homes.” A programmable Wi-Fi thermostat is a perfect example of how the way we control our homes is being revolutionized.

Wi-Fi Thermostats Give You Control from Anywhere

A wireless, or Wi-Fi, thermostat regulates temperature, improves energy efficiency and feedback, and ensures that you’re comfortable at all times. These thermostats build upon the basic features of older programmable thermostats, but they include a large variety of added features. One of the many appeals of a Wi-Fi thermostat is that they enable you to stay connected to your home, no matter where you are. Once you sync your Wi-Fi thermostat with your router, you will have remote access from a computer or via an app on your smartphone or tablet. From the palm of your hand, you can have total control over your home’s temperature.

Popular Wi-Fi Thermostats Compared

Here are a few of the most popular Wi-Fi thermostats available today, all of which are both iOS and Android compatible.

At Lancaster Brothers We Strive To Give All Of Our Customers A Positive Experience:

Here is feedback from one of our customers during this hot spell.

Hi Chris.  I wanted to tell you about my experience with your company.  Last night about 6:30, we noticed our AC was not cooling or blowing much air.  I called the emergency line and got ahold of Kevin.  He asked us to look to see  if the unit was blowing, etc.  We were getting minimal air to come in the and heat was rising.  He told me he was in Blue Springs and I told him that I hated for him to drive all the way to South Olathe at that time of night and that we could just limp along.  To be honest, I thought that I might need a pay advance to pay for emergency services, so I thought I better wait.  He immediately told me that an emergency call was only $165.00  (you could charge way more) and a regular call was only $125.00.  That is so reasonable.  I still told him I hated for him to drive that far.  He told me “ I would rather come and check on it tonight, besides, that is what we are here for “.  He came and fixed it and was so professional and nice.  We have had construction/remodeling in our basement and concrete dust had restricted and cause the unit to freeze up.  My bill was still $165.00.

 

You guys run a TOP NOTCH business and I appreciate it so much!!  Just thought I would let you know

Ground source heat pumps are more complex and complicated than a conventional heating & cooling system.  Regular maintenance on this type of system is critical.  The tests & maintenance steps required for these systems are something that the majority of homeowners cannot do themselves.  We go to many homes every year where a costly breakdown and service call could have been avoided had maintenance been performed regularly.

Our recommendation is having maintenance performed twice a year.  Once in the heating season and once in the cooling season.  Sign up to be one of our annual maintenance customers and receive additional discounts on repairs.

Looking at building a home?  We install Ground Source Systems in new construction as well.

Replacement Filters?  We have those too!  Visit our Overland Park location for your conventional or ground source filter purchases.

Lancaster Brothers Heating & Cooling appreciates the opportunity to earn your business!
