A smart thermostat is your friend and trusted advisor.

It can diagnose your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and warn you of potential repairs. It monitors the temperature and indoor air quality (IAQ) inside your Mequon home—and alerts you to any issues.

Upgrading to a smart thermostat helps you get the best value from your HVAC equipment. You can count on Midwest Heating & Cooling to install, repair, and service your next smart thermostat.

We are one of the top HVAC companies throughout Wisconsin, bringing over two decades of experience to every job. Call us today for a free consultation.

Why Choose a Smart Thermostat Over a Regular One?

A standard thermostat gives you temperature readings and allows you to make adjustments. A smart thermostat does so much more.

It provides data to lower your energy use while keeping you comfortable. Some smart thermostats provide weather forecasts, display outdoor and indoor temperatures in addition to the humidity level, track energy use, run system diagnostics, and tell you when to change your HVAC system’s air filter.

You can control your home’s temperature settings from anywhere in the world via a smartphone app. You can also buy a smart thermostat that responds to voice commands—and streams music!

Take Advantage of a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat gives you complete control of your indoor comfort, regardless of the outdoor temperatures. Here are a few of the benefits you will enjoy:

  • Easy Controls
    A smart thermostat allows you to pre-program your temperature settings. Plus, you can remotely access your thermostat in case you want to adjust the settings when you are on the road.
  • Geofencing Capability
    Some smart thermostats create a digital fence around your home to automatically use less energy when you’re away. With your permission, the thermostat can sync with your smartphone to monitor your location. It will adjust the temperature to your preference when you are near your Mequon home, and set it accordingly when you leave the area.
  • Eco-Friendly Features
    Because they monitor your energy use, smart thermostats help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Compatibility
    Most smart thermostats are compatible with many other devices—including Alexa, Google Assistant, smart appliances, smart watches, and more.

Smart thermostats work with sensors that manage temperature differences inside your home. Doing so allows you to manage hot and cold spots in a larger home.

Some models even have vacation mode features, letting the thermostat know when you will be gone from your home for an extended period to avoid frozen pipes in the winter and extreme heat in the summer.

Choosing the right thermostat for your HVAC system is like picking a quarterback who can call all the plays! Our licensed team can help you choose the best thermostat for your Mequon home.
