With so many people switching over to smart phones these days, it’s no wonder that the iPhone is making its debut on the home improvement stage. The app in question, Tado, is much more than a simple digital level or Feng-Shui living room evaluation tool. It can save you big bucks on your heating bill this winter by allowing you to digitally regulate your thermostat from outside of the home. Wireless heating: what will they think of next?

The app’s secret to controlling your heating system is a small box that replaces your thermostat or attaches directly to the your Stephenville home’s heating boiler. Using your in-home internet connection, it can communicate wirelessly with your smart phone, allowing you to warm-up your house before you step through the front door.

Working as a sort of a “personal heating assistant,” Tado users can cut their heating bill by 27% on average, almost completely automatically.

The app turns down the heat after the last person leaves and cranks it up before you arrive home, but it also knows to lay off the energy when the sun shines. How cool is that?
