Save Money and Make Your Home More Comfortable with Climate Control Automation

If you, like most Americans, have an HVAC system in your home to control the climate of your living space, you know how much of an energy hog this appliance can be. However, there are ways to make your home more comfortable and spend less on energy bills. To start, the best way is to look at your climate control options.

Climate Control and Energy Savings

Climate control systems that let you regulate the temperature of your home remotely work well for saving energy and convenience. For instance, you can turn on your air conditioner to cool the home on your way home from work. Or, if you leave the house and forgot to turn off the heater, you can do so from the app. These means of controlling your home’s climate make it more comfortable and allows you to keep the home at less comfortable temperatures while you’re away and adjust them to comfortable settings on your way home.

Other Ways to Reduce Energy Use

You can also reduce the energy used by your HVAC system in other ways aside from using a smart climate control system. Energy Star recommends sealing and insulating air ducts to save up to 20% on energy. Additionally, schedule annual inspections of your HVAC system, whether you’ve used it or not, to keep it in working order. Lastly, make sure to replace the filters to reduce the effort the system must use to move air through it. 

Why a Remotely Accessible Climate Control System Outperforms a Manual Control in Your Home

Programmable thermostats don’t allow for schedule changes. You could end up home sick from work and your home is uncomfortably hot due to the programming. Or, you have a holiday off and can’t stand to be in the house because the thermostat was programmed to keep the home warmer in the summer. In some cases, overriding the programming is difficult.

Manual thermostats are equally problematic. They require you to make frequent adjustments to the system to maintain the greatest balance of comfort and energy efficiency. However, you cannot control these types of thermostats remotely.

Remote climate control systems allow you to manually change the settings from an app on your phone. So, you don’t have to worry about setting up a specific schedule or changes to your daily life. Or, you can choose to set up easily adjusted programs to make your energy savings effortless.

Lighting Controls Let You Create the Mood at the Touch of a Button

When it comes to controlling aspects of your home, you may not immediately think about automating your lighting. After all, you can just flip a switch to turn on the lights. But integrating lighting controls into your home’s network can help you to live more comfortably and make your home more energy-efficient.

Energy Savings from Lighting Controls

When you connect your lights to remote controls or automation, you can see dramatic energy savings. Depending on how you have the system set up, you could save a lot in the amount that you spend to light your home. A study shows that lights connected to control systems in commercial buildings save between 24 and 38% on energy for lighting. You could see similar savings in your home. 

Ease of Operation

With controlled lighting, you can simply switch lights on in any room from an app on your phone. Imagine not having to get out of bed to turn off the bedroom light. Or you can turn on multiple lights in one room without having to walk around and manually switch them all on.

Adding your personalized lighting scenes also improves the operation of your lights. For example, you can select the movie-watching lighting option from the control app and watch as the lights go down in your home theater.

App Access to Lights from Anywhere

Wherever your phone or tablet goes, you have control of your home lighting. So, you can turn off the lights from work if you forgot to do so. Or while on vacation, you can turn lights on around your home to make it look like your home is occupied and deter would-be burglars. Plus, you can connect your climate controls to the lighting to optimize your home’s energy efficiency and convenience.
