Thanks to advancements in technology, the HVAC industry now offers a variety of HVAC systems that come with unique automation features. From zoning technology to remote access, these features optimize convenience and can even lower utility expenses in your Annapolis, Maryland, home. Here’s a look at the top three reasons to upgrade your HVAC system with automation features:
Use Zoned Heating and Cooling to Optimize Efficiency
With automated zoning features, you can heat and cool rooms on an individual basis. This lets you set the living room to a comfortable temperature in the evenings, while the rest of the house stays at a more moderate temperature.
When you’re sleeping, the HVAC system can also automatically keep your bedroom temperature at a cool 72 degrees while raising the temperature in other parts of the house. This type of efficiency can significantly reduce your energy waste. As a result, you’ll save money on your monthly utility bills.
Gain Remote Access to Your HVAC System From Anywhere
Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could control your HVAC system when you’re away from home? With today’s modern remote access feature, you can! If you’re at work and you want to keep your air conditioner from working hard, raise the temperature inside your home to a more moderate 78 degrees. Then, about an hour before you return home, lower the temperature via an app to a more comfortable 72 degrees.
Preset Temperatures With a Programmable Thermostat
If you haven’t added a programmable thermostat to your HVAC unit, don’t wait any longer. Each day you wait increases your utility expenses.
Programmable thermostats automatically change temperature settings according to your own preferences. For example, with a programmable thermostat, you can preset your HVAC system to stay at 80 degrees from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. each day while you’re away at work. You can then preset it to change to a more comfortable 72 degrees when you return home. Using these settings will also help you reduce energy waste and lower utility bills.
