What Are the Differences Between a Honeywell WiFi and Honeywell RedLINK Thermostat?

The thermostat is the great secrets of any heating and cooling system for a home. It’s a secret that hides in plain sight: a panel on your wall with a display and a few controls. You probably think of it as simply the location where you can turn the air conditioner and heater on and off and set the minimum and maximum temperatures. If the thermostat is programmable, you can also set the time for it to turn on and off. However, a thermostat can make or break a comfort system. An outdated thermostat with poor calibration steals away efficiency and comfort, often without you noticing at first. A cutting-edge thermostat with programmable and WiFi power permits you control over temperatures in your home with unmatched precision and complete freedom—which also means unmatched comfort and energy savings. Air Mechanical, Inc. offers installation of a variety of thermostats in Blaine, MN that will take your air conditioning and heating to the next horizon of technology. Among the available models, we often recommend a Honeywell WiFi or a Honeywell with RedLINK™ technology. Both have superb features, although there are some key differences between them.

Honeywell WiFi Thermostat

With this digital unit, you have access to your home’s comfort through any wireless device. Using a dedicated app, you can set the thermostat’s 7-day program from anywhere you have WiFi access with a simple and easy to understand interface. The Honeywell WiFi is also a “smart” thermostat: it learns your heating and cooling patterns and adjusts itself to reach precision temperatures no early digital thermostat can achieve. It also has an indoor humidity sensor and alters to tell you when it’s time to change the air filter or when the unit detects extreme temperatures.

Honeywell RedLINK™ Wireless Comfort Systems

RedLINK™ wireless technology is an exclusive development from Honeywell available for both commercial and residential comfort systems. It has all the functionality of a WiFi system, but goes beyond with numerous other options through the RedLINK™ portal: over 90 different system alerts, zone control for zone control systems, memory logs to keep track of setting history, a 20-40-60 minute timed ventilation boost, outdoor temperature and humidity displays, and precision controls over staging, fan circulation, and indoor air quality settings. With a RedLINK™, you have total control from almost any spot in the world over your home’s environment available through desktops, tablets, and smart phones.
