After the longest, coldest, winter ever (at least for me here in the Midwest tundra; the spring hasn’t been that warm yet either), I am excited to upgrade my heating and cooling system with the Wifi Smart Thermostat from Honeywell.
I’ve had a Honeywell digital thermometer since we purchased this home about 10 years ago. At the time it was installed it was considered state of the art and it was probably the fanciest thermostat we had ever seen. The previous owners had it all programmed and set for specific temperatures to conserve energy for daytime and nighttime settings. The problem is they liked it super cold. I nearly froze my tootsies off. I never exactly figured out how to use it. Not too energy efficient of me, right?! That’s the problem a lot of people have with programmable thermostats.
I am happy to report that all of that has changed now that I can log in online or use the Total Connect Comfort app. I can check the settings there, change the temperatures and even see the inside humidity level and outside temperature FROM PRACTICALLY ANYWHERE. Additionally, it boasts an easy to read customizable color touchscreen that’s really simple to adjust to your specific temperature preferences! It’s just a few clicks to set it up after it’s installed and even that only took a few minutes. (don’t forget to scroll down and enter to win one for your home!)
The first thing we did was check to make sure that it was compatible with our system at this link: http://wifithermostat.com/Products/WiFiSmartThermostat/?s=6″rel=nofollow” There’s a few yes or no questions to answer to help you figure it out. I really loved how easy Honeywell made it.
Then once we received it, we un-boxed it and had it up and running in about 10 minutes. It almost took me longer to register the account than to install the actual thermostat. Even if you were a complete newbie, I’m pretty sure you could have it installed and set up in no more than 30 minutes. After answering a few questions about you and your family’s routine, you’ll be all set to wake up toasty and warm and sleep in your preferred environment. EASY technology ROCKS!!
MORE AMAZING FEATURES:
- Smart Response- this thermostat is super smart! It learns your specific system’s heating and cooling cycle times so that it can adjust to the temperature you choose at the time you picked when you set it up.
- Advanced Fan/Comfort Control-you choose for the fan to only run when the system runs or it can run randomly, about 35% of the time.
- Auto Alerts-It sends an alert to your smartphone letting you know a temperature is above your highest alert setting and it also sends one when the filter needs to be changed. It also displays it on the thermostat too.
- Locking Touchscreen-you can set up a password for your own peace of mind and to keep others from accessing the temperature controls.
- and much much more!!

All in all, the Wifi Smart Thermostat from Honeywell has been an enjoyable upgrade and I hope to also see some savings in the future now that we have it set up correctly. With this thermostat, I feel secure knowing that I can check and control my home’s heating system from anywhere anytime. I’ll update this post as I compare heating and cooling bills over the next few months!!
