    Temperature Controls

    Being still new in this business, I would like to know if there are any remote controlled temperature controls for HVAC units. Like a remote controlled T.V. for example. With winter in full swing it would sure be nice to have something like this available

    how much are you willing to pay? ecobee has a wifi controllable one via your iphone apps/ I believe they have one for android also.

    do you really need the wifi controllable ? or do you just want to be fancy? get a regular programmable t-stat, check the weather channel for outdoor temp and humidity. get a hum-stat to check inside hum. if you don't have a humidifier then it's jus expesive t-stat

    listen to this guy. you will spend a good buck, play with it for a little while then never look at it again. as matter of fact most programables i have installed for people end up set on permanent hold anyway.
