It’s 2018, and technology is becoming an increasingly important part of our lives. Most people now have smartphones and other smart devices that seek to make every aspect of life more manageable. One of the biggest investments you can make in your home, especially here in Louisiana, is a smart thermostat to regulate your air conditioner, heat pump or other HVAC system. Read on to find out why.
It’s easy enough to set your thermostat when you’re at home, but there are many occasions when you might want to change the temperature in your house while you are not actually in your house. For example, you might be coming home early and need your air conditioning lower sooner, or you may be staying out late. A smart thermostat can be adjusted remotely with a signal from your smartphone, allowing you to maximize energy efficiency without losing comfort. Likewise, you can use your smart thermostat along with zoning to make adjustments in different parts of your house throughout the day; turn on the AC downstairs before you start your morning routine, and it will be cool by the time you come down for breakfast.
Some Nexia smart thermostats go beyond remote control; they have built-in artificial intelligence that actually learns how to adjust your HVAC on the fly. Your thermostat can be linked to your GPS to learn your habits and routines. Over time, it will learn to match your heating and cooling needs in real time, giving you outstanding comfort whenever you are at home while minimizing your utility bills.
These are just a few of the ways that Trane smart thermostats and other home automation products can improve your quality of life. To learn more about these new products, check out our HVAC systems online or call us at (337) 706-9469.
