Ever since Willis Carrier invented the air conditioner in 1902, the Carrier Corporation has been an innovative leader in heating and cooling technology. Its Côr thermostat product is no exception. Released to the public in the spring of 2015, the Côr thermostat offers the ultimate in convenience while allowing you to save considerable money on cooling and heating costs. As an authorized Carrier dealer, AirPro Comfort Systems enthusiastically recommends this product. It is only available through Carrier dealers and not in retail locations.
Programmable vs. Manual Thermostats
You probably grew up with a manual thermostat and didn’t think too much of it. This type of thermostat requires homeowners to access the unit directly to adjust the temperature. Programmable thermostats became available as technology progressed. This allowed people to adjust the indoor temperature and other settings to a set schedule based around their regular daily preferences. Thermostats with Wi-Fi capability offer the most freedom of all.
Wi-Fi Capability for On-the-Go Control
Smartphones are only growing in popularity, and with good reason. They allow users to access online information and complete everyday tasks regardless of their location. With Côr’s Wi-Fi capability, you can control the settings on your thermostat from work or wherever you happen to be. This comes in handy when you want to come home to a cool house in the summer and a warm house in the winter without running your HVAC system all day.
Carrier chose an appropriate name for this thermostat since Côr is Latin for “heart” and this device serves as the heart of the home. This smart technology adapts to your home and the habits of people who live there. It constantly adjusts to your preferred settings and the capabilities of your HVAC system. Not only does this ensure your comfort, it helps to improve energy efficiency as well.

As with several of its other thermostats, the Carrier Côr allows you to operate the system whether you’re at home or far away. Some of its most important features include:
