I think every home we’ve ever lived in has had a Honeywell brand thermostat. In fact up until a few years ago I thought they were the only company that made thermostats. Recently the harsh winter really wrecked havoc to our home. Along with replacing burst pipes we also had to have our furnace repaired. The first thing the heating and cooling guy told me to do when I had an opportunity was to replace my thermostat.
Replacing my old Honeywell manual (ancient) thermostat to the new Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled Smart thermostat has saved me on my heating bill in leaps and bounds. Our last months bill was less than $100. That includes heating and electricity. Of course as my husband and I literally rejoiced over the bill ; he then looked at me and said we should have done this a long time ago, but how could we have known?

Our new thermostat has definitely brought us into the 21st Century. Our previous thermostat worked just fine we never had any problems with it. It’s just that the new one has so many cool features and did I mention it lowered our heating bill? In the past we’ve had heating bills as high as $350 and that was only having the thermostat at the highest 75′. We chalked up the previous heating bills as our home being very old and not being insulated very well. We never imagined the culprit could be our thermostat.
The customizable touch screen allows me to change the colors to fit my wall color or my mood with a few simple clicks. It actually learns our heating and cooling patterns and delivers just what we need when we need it. Like yesterday when we woke up to snow in APRIL! Although we haven’t been able to use all of the features I can’t wait til this summer when the indoor humidity sensor clicks on. In Michigan the humidity not the heat can be unbearable.
The app allows us to control the new thermostat from virtually anywhere. Before, we had to be home and manually set the thermostat. Now, if we leave we can turn off the thermostat then while we;re out access the app and make sure we all come home to a nice toasty warm home. I can access the app from my smart phone, my computer or tablet.
