Today’s homes are smarter than ever, with appliances that can handle the hard work of keeping your home comfortable with minimal interaction from the homeowner. If you are looking for an effortless way to keep your Texas home cool this summer, home automation might be your best option.
HVAC systems today can be linked to other automated systems throughout your home. These systems allow you to remotely control and monitor your indoor units with ease.
A programmable thermostat manages indoor temperatures throughout the day for optimum cooling and energy efficiency. You can adjust the settings according to your daily or weekly schedules. Some thermostats are equipped with sensors, and can automatically adjust your home’s temperatures depending on activity level or based on your programming tendencies. Programmable thermostats allow you to program more efficient settings so temperatures are ideal when you are home, for instance, and for energy-saving setting when you are away. Learning to program your thermostat correctly will improve your home comfort without increasing your energy bill.
The hot Texas sun can be your worst enemy when it comes to cooling your home. Smart blinds, however, offer an easy automated solution. Forget about having to go from to room adjusting your blinds. Window sensors will determine heat gain and indoor temperatures and adjust the blinds accordingly. This is also a handy tool for giving your home a lived-in appearance when you are out of town. Being able to control the amount of heat entering your home will help to improve the performance of your HVAC system.
Your dryer can generate a lot of heat which in turn increases cooling needs. Dryers today are equipped with a moisture sensor to prevent them from running longer than necessary. This not only reduces cooling needs but also reduces your energy consumption in general.
