Winter is here, and in Canada, that means pumping up the heater to keep your family comfortable. No one likes being too cold, but watching your electricity bills skyrocket in the colder months can also be frustrating. A home climate control system will help you to better monitor and control your HVAC usage so that you can minimize your electricity bill without sacrificing comfort. Read on to learn three reasons that you need a home climate control system in your Saskatoon, SK home this winter.
The most direct benefit of a smart climate control system is convenience. Never again run from room to room, closing the blinds or continuously get up to adjust the temperature as the weather changes. Your Lutron motorized shades in every room will close at one press of a button, and your thermostat will automatically heat or cool your home based on your preferences. It will continuously learn from your adjustments to better predict your needs and will monitor the temperature outdoors to proactively predict whether you will turn on your heating or cooling system.
Your home climate control system will connect to your home network so that you can easily adjust it from an app or a website, no matter where you are in the world. For example, if a family member unexpectedly announces they are stopping by while you are out, you can warm up the house for them before you get home. Monitor your HVAC usage while you are on vacation. If the temperature of your home goes above or below your set parameters, you will receive an alert on your phone. Then, you can easily adjust the temperature from your app without interrupting your vacation.
Installing a smart climate control system will save you money on electricity bills. Your system will have an energy-saving mode to ensure that you are using the HVAC as efficiently as possible. Motion sensors can detect when family members are home and automatically turn off your heating or cooling system when they are not.
Program schedules to complement your family's hectic daily lives. Have the thermostat turn off fifteen minutes after everyone is scheduled to leave the house, then schedule it to turn on fifteen minutes before someone is supposed to come home, so the temperature is already comfortable by the time they get there.
You can further your energy-savings by connecting your smart thermostat to a home automation system. Your Control4 or Savant system will open up your motorized shades to let sunlight in and warm up a room in the winter, lessening the work that your heater has to do. It will close your motorized shades to prevent sunlight in the summer, making it easier for your air conditioner to cool your home.
