IS YOUR HEATING SYSTEM DUMB?

Not all systems are created equally, and some are not as smart as others. What works for you? Here's the Inside Scoop on Smart Heating.

Voice-activated virtual assistants and smart hubs act as command centers for smart products like light switches, door locks, and even your coffee pot. But what about your indoor comfort? Where is the smart control center for your indoor comfort?

Your first guess may be the thermostat…and historically, you are correct. High-efficiency

HVAC equipment had to rely on information from the thermostat to run at its designed efficiency. Heating and cooling equipment manufacturers are now designing models with built in communicating technology so they don’t have to rely on the thermostat to optimize performance.

So, why does this matter to you?
Simply put, the HVAC equipment can make internal adjustments, as needed, to run at peak efficiency along with the thermostat’s help. These high IQ HVAC systems have built-in components that can adjust operation. These systems ramp up when the demand is high and gently slow operation when the need is less than 100%. This is not only energy efficient but minimizes the temperature peaks and valleys often found with the ON/OFF cycle of a single-speed or single-stage unit. That means that you stay more comfortable in your home.

What about the thermostat?
While you still need a temperature sensing device, (such as a thermostat) to detect the temperature in your home, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment with this technology can adjust its own performance without the need for a specific thermostat brand. This means you can use almost any thermostat you want, even one that connects to your virtual assistant or smart hub. This built-in communicating technology is designed to create an intelligent indoor comfort system capable of customizing energy-efficient performance without the thermostat telling it to do so. Once you set your desired indoor temperature, you do not need to worry about making manual adjustments to your home’s heating and cooling system to ensure top performance. The smart technology in the HVAC equipment is designed to take care of the rest!

How does it work?
Smart HVAC systems designed with this technology use a smart algorithm to gather its own system performance data. It uses this data to make automatic internal adjustments that may reduce the amount of energy used to heat or cool your home without the assistance of the thermostat. So if you are considering upgrading your HVAC equipment or merely the thermostat or control system, it is best to seek the guidance of a licensed professional HVAC dealer. They will be able to assess your indoor comfort equipment and guide you to the optimal thermostat or HVAC control system that best fits your needs. The system is capable of calibrating the best way to achieve the comfort level you desire, and then use the lowest amount of energy needed to maintain it.

What to look for in a new system?

COMFORT FEATURES

Many new systems offer variable speed fans and compressors that help reduce temperature swings, and communicating control technology that continuously and intelligently monitor performance designed to offer customized indoor comfort.

UNIT INSTALLATION

Proper sizing and professional installation of a system customized to your home’s design are key factors in achieving tested efficiency ratings, lower operating costs, and consistent indoor comfort.

EFFICIENCY RATING

Minimum energy efficiency standards and attainable ratings have been increasing, providing homeowners with additional high-efficiency options for heating and cooling systems.

RELIABILITY

Quality materials, proven manufacturing process-es, and final run testing help to reinforce the reliability of consisTent indoor comfort.

VALUE

More efficient systems may cost more up front, but may qualify for rebates and save you money on energy costs in the long run.
