Heating & Airconditioning
Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC)
Home automation can pay off, literally, in terms of efficiency and energy savings. An intelligent thermostat can not only be set remotely, but can operate on week-long cycles to provide customized efficiency to fit your lifestyle.
Turn your HVAC system down when on away or on holiday, and have it return to your preferred temperature on the day you arrive back. Your house now works with you to manage itself for optimal efficiency. There’s no more obvious benefit to home automation.
Not only can you easily schedule different heat and cool settings for various times of the day – wake up to a warm/cool house, allow for different settings when you leave for work, and drop the settings for when you go to bed – a smart HVAC system can integrate with your automation system.
Another important benefit of an automated HVAC systems is being able to check in on your home remotely or receive an email if the temperature exceeds a preset limit. Your home can contact you immediately so you can correct a small problem before it becomes a big one.
While this may not be critical to a permanent resident, knowing your home’s status is a crucial feature for vacation/second homes.
