Smart home technology is becoming more and more prevalent across the Bath, Pennsylvania, area. This is because of the many benefits these technologies offer to homeowners. If you’re considering upgrading to smart, wireless gadgets, here are just some of the ways they can improve your home’s performance.
Looking to save money and feel more comfortable? A smart thermostat can help. Unlike a programmable thermostat, which simply uses the set temperature schedule you’ve provided, a smart thermostat uses sensors to detect when you’re home. That way, it can devise its own heating and cooling schedule without you having to tinker with any settings. Best of all, you can control your thermostat while you’re away from home with just a few taps on your phone.
Tankless Water Heater
Running out of hot water in the middle of a shower is the worst. With a tankless water heater, that will never happen again. These small systems use far less energy than traditional tanks because they only heat up water while the faucet is on. Their advanced high-power burners let them churn out water so fast that the supply is continuous.
Are you the type of person that leaves lights on throughout the home because you forgot to turn them off? If so, smart lighting is for you. These special bulbs let you control them remotely via your smartphone. This means it just takes a few taps to flick lights on and off. In addition to saving energy, this also provides better home security, as you can turn on your lights while you’re away to make it look like someone is home.
Keep in mind that home performance is not the same thing as HVAC performance. Your HVAC system is just one of the many parts that make up your home. If you want to maximize your home’s performance, you’ll also need to improve your HVAC system’s performance. Luckily, Sullivan Oil & Propane can help with our preventative maintenance plans.
