How WiFi Thermostats Work to Keep Your Cincy Family Comfortable Around the Clock

Whether it’s heating or cooling season, it’s important to be able to regulate the temperature in your Cincinnati home and keep it comfortable. Programmable thermostats can help with this, allowing you to set separate temperatures for when you’re at home and away to save energy. But the most effective way to control the temperature in your Cincy home, no matter where you are, is with a WiFi thermostat.

WiFi thermostats provide much more than just basic temperature regulation. They connect to the Internet so you can monitor and adjust your home temperature from any Internet-ready device. Some models will even send email alerts if the temperature gets too high or too low so you can address the situation immediately rather than waiting until you get home and wasting energy in the meantime.

But WiFi thermostats can do much more than that. The Internet connection also allows them to receive the latest weather information for your area to facilitate temperature adjustment. You can even supplement the thermostat with additional sensors, both around the house and outside, to monitor and adjust the temperature in individual rooms, all from a single device.

There are also portable controls available that can be taken from room to room and are used to make each room as comfortable as possible while it’s in use. A variety of factors can lead to disparate temperatures between different rooms of the house, but a thermostat only heats or cools based on the reading of the room it’s in. With a WiFi thermostat, additional sensors and a portable controller, you can adjust the temperature of the room you’re in to make it perfectly comfortable without wasting energy on the parts of the house no one’s using.

There are a variety of great features available for WiFi thermostats for a variety of different needs. But no matter what kind you get, it’s a great way of keeping your home comfortable and energy-efficient, wherever you are.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."
- Cassandra B.
"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
