This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Schneider Electric for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love things that make my life easier… In my home, I have a keyless entry (awesome when my hands are full of grocery bags!), timers on my lamps and now a new super-cool addition to my heating and cooling system. I am so excited to install the Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat in my home which will help me save money without sacrificing comfort! Plus, I can adjust the settings and manage the system from my smartphone!

Schneider Electric, the makers of the Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, develops connected technologies and solutions for energy management (making the company the global specialist), in ways that are safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable.

The Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is a highly intelligent thermostat with features such as Comfort Boost which is a unique feature that allows users to get instant heating or cooling without changing the schedule and Wiser Pulse which is an ambient glow feature that lights up Blue for cooling, Yellow for heating and Green when Eco IQ™ is saving energy. Eco IQ™ is a fabulous feature in itself  as it is self-learning and finds the right temperature for you. Comfort and savings based on user interaction are optimized based on factors such as humidity, outdoor weather, system run times and the home thermal profile.

So, not only with the Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat save money, but it is so easy to install! Here, let me show you…

I had an old programmable thermostat in my home that I installed years ago.

I shut the power off to the furnace (very important!) and removed the old thermostat. Before removing the old thermostat, though, it is a good idea to take a photo of the existing wiring to use as a guide when connecting it to the new thermostat.

Because the holes from a thermostat that was installed long, long ago would still be visible, I decided to use the back plate for the Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat that is included in the box. I fed the wiring through the trim plate and into the back plate. The back plate is secured to the wall with drywall anchors and screws.

Referring to my photo of the existing wiring, I connected the wiring to the new thermostat. It is really easy to do – you’ll basically plug the wire into the corresponding terminal. Easy, right? (If in doubt, always consult an electrical professional!!)

Next, I snapped the front plate on the back plate being careful not to damage the terminals, then I turned the power back on.

The Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat will launch an installation wizard to help guide you through the setup process. I followed the prompts, and installed the app on my smartphone.

Now, I can easily adjust the thermostat to fit the comfort level of the home! Awesome, right? purchase the Wiser Air Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat for yourself. With it’s simple installation and setup, you can have it up and running in no time!
