Technology of all kinds has become essential to our daily lives, from the way we work and communicate to the way we spend our leisure time. Since we live in an always-connected world, it makes sense that this technology will also become a part of our homes, helping us create a comfortable environment while saving on energy costs.
While programmable thermostats have been available for years, they now offer more options than ever, including wireless connectivity that lets you check and adjust your home’s temperature using your smart phone no matter where you are. Some systems, such as the Nest thermostat, are even able to learn your habits and automatically follow your schedule, resulting in a hassle-free experience that maintains your home’s temperature at your ideal comfort levels while operating as efficiently as possible.
In addition to thermostats, many water heaters now offer programmable technology, allowing you to realize greater savings by not heating water when nobody is home. Other equipment has continued to become more sophisticated and energy efficient; newer furnaces and air conditioners operate at 97% efficiency. Many utility providers issue rebates to homeowners who switch to newer, more efficient units, which can decrease the up-front costs of purchasing new equipment.
If you have any questions about new technologies, our technicians are always educated in the latest systems to hit the market, and we can help you decide which ones will have the most impact on your home’s efficiency while providing you with the easy-to-use features that will make your life easier.
