What Is Home Automation?
First, it was smart cars that talked to you, then it was smartphones that do just about every task imaginable, and now it is smart houses. While we haven’t quite gotten to the level of the Jetsons, the things that make up our everyday world are becoming more able to do things that scientists only dreamed about twenty years ago. Home automation is now becoming a widespread phenomenon.
The Connected Home
Imagine placing a small device in each room of your home that allows you to use your phone to control the temperature wherever you happen to be. This is what a wi-fi thermostat allows you to do. Not everyone in your home is comfortable at the same temperature. You also don’t need to keep your home as warm when you are away, or as cool in the summer. New technology allows you to control the thermostat from your phone so that you can save energy costs while still keeping the greatest amount of comfort. In areas like Cincinnati, where the yearly temperature not only varies greatly throughout the year but can also fluctuate throughout the day, it is important to do what is necessary to keep your home comfortable. With home automation, it isn’t just temperature you can control remotely. You can control appliances, lights, and just about any objects that can be wired.
Being able to determine where your energy is being used and where you can make cuts is important. With the new technology, National Heating and Air Conditioning can perform an energy audit on your home that will allow you to know where your money is being spent. By knowing where your energy is going, you can make changes, big or small, that will enable you to save money on energy costs. This helps save your wallet and the environment.
