Does it feel like the temperature is never right in your home? Are you too cold in some rooms, too hot in others? Do you feel like you’re always taking a detour to walk by your thermostat and adjust it?
Home automation makes your life easier. Not only will you be able to control your thermostat via your smartphone, but you’ll also be able to get some insight into how your HVAC is operating too. That means you’ll be able to maintain your temperature better, as well as become more energy efficient too.
But where do you start?
It starts with upgrading your thermostat. Think of this as the control center for your heating and cooling equipment. The only way to have better control is to have a better control center. And that means upgrading your thermostat.
A quick look around will tell you there are lots of ways to gain better control. Instead of guessing at which will be best for you, or selecting one based on price, give us a call. We can recommend the best one to suit your needs. Consider your home, your heating and cooling system, and whether you use iOs or Android as a start.
Once you have upgraded and control your HVAC system via an app, you’ll be amazed by how much you can learn. After even just a few days, you’ll start to see patterns in the way you live. You’ll find hours of the day you can adjust the temperature in your home to save even more. And what’s even better, your home automation system will learn right along with you. It can make adjustments based on your behavior.
Of course, sometimes the best place to start is by investing in a new furnace or air conditioner. Your HVAC equipment isn’t designed to last forever. And if it isn’t well equipped to handle today’s modern conveniences, if it isn’t the most efficient it can be, an upgrade may be the easiest way to gain more control.
How about variable speed controls? In the past, furnaces were on or off. But with variable speed controls, you have more options. You can have more heat when you need it, set it on a lower setting to maintain temperatures.
You can also see it in the efficiency. You’ll find it easier to save money each month when you can adjust the settings based on your needs, not just the time. Feel like sleeping in? Don’t adjust the temperature until you need it. Going out for dinner instead of coming home? You can adjust the temperature with just a click.
