With energy prices rising and environmental concerns growing, efficient heating and cooling is becoming more important than ever. One way to improve your HVAC system’s efficiency is to utilize smart HVAC technology in your Kyle, Texas, home. Through the use of smart thermostats, sensors, vents and other components, smart HVAC is changing the way people heat and cool their homes. Read on to learn more.
Smart thermostats allow you to schedule temperature adjustments and remotely control your home’s temperature from an internet-connected device. Some smart thermostats are able to learn your habits and monitor the weather. As a result, they can make temperature adjustments so your HVAC system doesn’t run unnecessarily.
Environmental sensor technology is an important part of smart HVAC. These sensors help your HVAC system run smoothly, alerting you to problems and helping to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Pressure sensors used in compressors, coolers, burners and other HVAC components indicate when the system needs maintenance. They alert homeowners to problems early and possibly help prevent expensive breakdowns.
Occupancy sensors recognize when people enter and leave a room. When the sensor detects that someone is in the room, the HVAC system operates normally. When the sensor recognizes the room is empty, it turns off the system. This can result in significant energy savings.
Indoor Air Quality Measurement Sensors
Sensors that measure indoor air quality are becoming more popular as people realize the importance of making sure their indoor air is clean. Most air quality sensors measure carbon levels in the air, since carbon levels are a good indicator of air circulation. These sensors also measure volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Smart vents direct airflow, sending it to where you need it most. For instance, smart vents can reduce airflow to an over-conditioned room and redirect that air to rooms that need it more.
