Technology is constantly changing the way that we live, making everyday tasks easier and more convenient. But did you know that new technologies are also changing the way that we think about home heating and cooling?
New HVAC Technologies
There are a variety of HVAC advancements and technologies that help you maximize health and comfort for you and your family while remaining energy efficient. Here are just a few of the ways that you can enhance the heating and cooling process in your home with new HVAC technologies:
Maximize comfort by controlling your vents through an app.
Much like smart thermostats, there are also smart ventilation systems that give you more control over the air flow throughout your home. Using sensors placed on your vents, you can monitor and adjust the temperature throughout your home for ultimate home comfort. The best part is that you can do this from any location by using an app on your smartphone. This technology allows you to monitor and adjust your home temperature even when you aren’t home, allowing you to save energy by using your home HVAC system more efficiently.
Use motion sensor technology to cool your home more efficiently.
Smart motion sensor technology is not just for your home security system. Some companies are now using this technology to help homeowners use their cooling systems more efficiently and effectively. These sensors detect when there are people in the room, activating air flow. This helps save energy by reducing air flow to rooms that are empty for a majority of the day, helping you cut down on your cooling bills.
Save on monthly costs with energy-efficient improvements.
There are a number of other energy-efficient HVAC upgrades that you can make to reduce your heating and cooling bills. Here are just a few options:
- Smart Thermostat – Smart thermostats allow you to adjust the temperature in your home, even while you are away. You can set your temperature lower or higher when you leave your house, which helps you to save energy while you’re away.
- Variable Refrigerant Flow – Homeowners can waste a considerable amount of energy running their HVAC system when they only need to heat or cool part of their home. Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) allows you to adjust the temperature in each room to use your HVAC system more efficiently. You can also save energy by only heating or cooling the rooms that are occupied.
- Solar-Powered Cooling – There are also a variety of options that use the power of the sun to run your air conditioner. These solar-powered options help you keep your home comfortable while using less energy.
