Smart Heating & Your Home: Five Options to Consider

smart heatingSmart heating is simply a more intelligent approach to comfort control and energy efficiency inside your home. The heart of indoor temperature sensing and adjustment is the system thermostat. Old-school manual thermostats are, well, dumb — at least by today’s standards.

Smart heating and cooling control, conversely, is intelligent and accessible for a fully automated indoor climate. Here are five options typically available with the new generation of HVAC technology:

  • Remote access. Apps allow complete monitoring and control of the environment in your home no matter where you are in the world. In addition to temperature and indoor-humidity data, the unit allows you to remotely adjust desired settings. It also provides status updates, including warnings about potential system malfunctions such as a power failure, as well as reminders for regular maintenance.
  • Learning technology. Smart thermostats learn your preferences for temperature control. They also remember what times of day the house is usually occupied and incorporate sensors to determine which rooms people are in at specific times. This data provides the thermostat with information necessary to fully automate indoor comfort with less input required from occupants.
  • Simplified programming. Studies show many people never program their standard “programmable” thermostat. That means it’s basically a complicated manual thermostat with a colorful screen. Smarter thermostats include more intuitive, people-friendly programming directly at the unit or via an intelligent app.
  • Automation interaction. Smarter thermostats are intelligent enough to interact with other home-automation technology in the house. Home-automation systems on the market are increasingly compatible with major thermostat brands to integrate control of common household functions such as lights and locks with indoor climate control and monitoring.
  • Energy tracking. To help you keep on top of home energy costs, smart technology provides full-featured reports of energy consumption by the furnace or A/C. With this information, you can make changes to your household habits and temperature preferences for greater savings.
