Improve comfort and convenience and save money with an automated HVAC system.
For the majority of the time you shouldn’t have to think about your heating and cooling systems. They should just work quietly in the background maintaining your ideal temperature. But by making some minor changes to your current system you can not only improve the ways your system maintains the temperature, you can also improve the way you see and set your temperature, as well as achieving significant cost savings.
The first aspect of improving energy efficiency in your heating and cooling is through programming your thermostats to take advantage of periods when you’re away or sleeping. By increasing or decreasing the temperature even a few degrees in those hours, you an see significant savings over time. Going even further is improving the control you have over your system to take advantage of short-term opportunities to set a higher or lower temperature for even greater savings.
Today’s smart thermostats provide even great opportunities, with technology that lets you see the cost of electricity at any point in time, alert you to excessive rates based on spikes in usage, and help you continue to drive the best and most cost effective schedule of your heating and cooling consumption. They also offer an unprecedented level of control.
From your couch you can see current indoor and outdoor temperatures, change the current temperature, change the schedule of upcoming automatic temperature changes and much more. While you’re away from home you can see the current temperature and if you’ve forgotten to change the temperature before leaving, you can do it all remotely from a phone, tablet or internet-enable computer.
Automating your HVAC systems are one of the easiest ways to improve the comfort and cost savings of your home.
