In the past couple of years, you may have heard the term “home automation” referenced in the news and by people relevant to the home improvement industry. If you’re still not sure what that means we’ll explain. Home Automation is simply a home that has appliances, lighting, heating and cooling systems and other electronics around the house that can be controlled remotely via the internet. We pride ourselves in being one of the first NKY HVAC contractors to offer this advanced technology to our customers in the Greater Cincinnati / Northern KY area.
Why would you want to use home automation? Probably for the same reason you upgraded any technology-based item over the past few decades – to make things easier, save time and most importantly to save money.
If you compare the way your household appliances have been transformed since 1950, they have some pretty incredible features now versus then. In addition, the cost to run those appliances has lowered due to the advancement of science and the focus on energy efficiency.
The systems used by NKY HVAC Contractors are no different. Remember the window unit? Look how far we’ve come since then. In the 1800’s we still heated by wood. Now, with home automation, we can pull out our phones to lower the temperature of our houses from virtually anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access!
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
The most significant feature of a home automation is really the conservation of energy. The result of reducing the amount of energy you consume is a savings both financially and in terms of our earth’s resources. In addition, it provides peace of mind and increases the comfort of your environment.
Have you ever left home only to wonder if you remembered to turn the temperature down? A smart home allows you to instantly check and see. If you didn’t turn it down, that’s okay. Now you can adjust the temperature any time.
Imagine you’re on your way home from Christmas vacation and the only thing you’re dreading is how cold it’s going to be those first couple hours because you reduced the temperature before you left. Not anymore. Home automation allows you to turn up the temperature at just the right time so your family can come home to a comfortable environment.
As a NKY HVAC contractor, one of the questions we get asked most often is, “How expensive is it?” The good news is, you don’t have to replace your entire system to have home automation! In fact, you only need to upgrade your thermostat making it an affordable investment.
In addition, if your home does need a new air conditioner or furnace, the difference in today's energy efficient units versus what you may currently own is fairly insignificant. In the long run, you will actually save money by choosing a system that is more convenient and actually improves the standard of living for your family.
