Throughout the 21st century, the HVAC industry has been changing rapidly due to the advancement of digital technologies. Wireless technologies and programmable thermostats have changed the face of heating and cooling systems. The technicians at New Age Air have dedicated themselves to staying up-to-date with training on the latest in technology.
The days of setting your thermostat and leaving it the same all day are over. Wireless technologies allow thermostats hooked up to Wi-Fi to connect with homeowners’ phones and tablets. By simply downloading an app, you can access your HVAC system at any time, no matter where you are. This allows homeowners to make changes to temperature settings and controls remotely — perfect for those with fluctuating schedules.
Programmable thermostats, also referred to as Learning Thermostats, are similar to the wireless technologies previously discussed. The main difference here is that these types of thermostats can be programmed in advance to mirror your daily activities. Here are some of the benefits of these technologically advanced, programmable thermostats:
- Can access from your phone or tablet
- Gives more accurate thermostat reading
- Improves efficiency
- Reduces wear-and-tear on HVAC systems
- Saves you money on fuel
- Can analyze your energy usage
Some Learning Thermostats provide email alerts when your home’s temperature is falling or rising and can detect whether or not you are in your home. These type of thermostats are great for those who have a vacation home or investment property. During the winter months, you can set your heat to a specific temperature so your pipes don’t freeze, and your monthly bill won’t skyrocket.
HVAC technicians must have the ability to adapt and learn about the new technology that continues to advance. Even though some of the new HVAC systems can run their own diagnostics and self-fix problems, technicians must be knowledgeable in adjusting, programming, or troubleshooting these computerized systems.
