If you live in Florida, air conditioning is not often seen as an optional accessory to your home. It is an incredibly important investment and can be key to your comfort during the hot summer months. For years HVAC units were pretty standard, but recent advances are bringing new units into the future.
Air Conditioning Can Now Be Apart of Your Smart Home
New smart home devices are constantly emerging to make our lives easier. We can now control our TVs with our phones, turn on our lights and devices remotely, access the power of the internet with our voice, and connect with people around the world with the click of a button.
Air conditioning is now joining the legion of smart devices on the market. Here are a few different devices that make your HVAC unit smarter.
Smart thermostats are one of the best new advances in HVAC technology. You can now access these thermostats with your phone, and adjust the temperature of your home without ever having to stand up.
Nest thermostats are some of the most popular smart thermostats available. They track the movements within your home and adjust the temperature when you’re home. The idea is that your HVAC unit doesn’t have to work hard and waste energy when you’re away.
Keen air vents can pair with your Nest thermostat, and they provide a variety of services:
- They track movement and temperatures and redirect airflow to the rooms that need it most.
- They allow you to track the temperature and humidity in the rooms of your home from your phone.
- They provide 3rd party integrations that allow you to purify your air.
Smart vents can give you finely tuned control over the way air conditioning is dispersed around your home.
Air purifiers are beneficial for our overall health and well being. Modern air purifiers are designed to blend in with your room and work more efficiently. Dyson’s Pure Cool air purifier has a modern design and tracks your air quality in real time.
If you suffer from allergies, consider investing in a smart air purifier to remove the pollutants and allergens that are circulated through your home by your air conditioner.
Not only are there units that can work off of energy created by solar panels, but there are also solar devices that detect the heat hitting your house and adjust the amount of power your HVAC unit is using accordingly.
Solar technology saves you in energy costs and keeps your HVAC unit from overworking itself, meaning that it’ll last longer – protecting your investment.
Why Update Your HVAC Tech At All?
HVAC units are becoming more efficient every day. New technology means that the way cool air is distributed throughout your home is strategic and minimizes waste. Air conditioning units are big investments that should last between 10-15 years, but the smarter your unit is, the more money you save in the long run.
