The Latest Energy-Saving HVAC Technology

by Kevin Smith Author

Technology is continuously improving our day-to-day lives, whether it’s a medical advancement or a simple smartphone app. When it comes to resident HVAC in Marietta, GA, new technology is helping homeowners save money, energy, and their environment. Here are just a few of the latest devices making waves in the industry. 

Micro-Environments

Similar to a ductless mini-split system, the concept of creating micro-environments allows for greater flexibility of climate control, whether it’s in a home or an office. Micro-environments, also called zones, have individual thermostats that control different areas of the house. For example, if you have parts of the home that are not used as frequently, you can adjust the climate controls to reduce energy expenditure in those areas. Micro-environments are especially helpful if some areas of your home or office cool or heat unevenly. You can compensate for rooms with large, west-facing windows without freezing the other rooms in the house using a central thermostat.   

Built-In Dehumidifiers

In humid climates like the Southeast, dehumidifiers are essential. Humidity is the measurement of moisture in the air; it is usually more noticeable after it rains on a warm, sunny day. Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture in the air by trapping water in the form of condensation inside the unit. Stand-alone dehumidifiers have been commercially available for several years, but new HVAC manufacturers are adding these machines to their central units. By pulling moisture-heavy air from home through a built-in dehumidifier, the central unit doesn’t have to work as hard to cool or heat your home. This added feature can help reduce your energy costs in the long run.

Smart Thermostats

Smartphone technology continues to improve and streamline everyday tasks. You can link your smartphone to a variety of wireless devices like speakers, security systems, and now, your air conditioner. Smart thermostats with wifi capability allow you to control your heating and air conditioning using your phone or tablet with the thermostat’s app installed. If you leave the house for vacation, and forgot to turn down your climate controls, pull up the app on your phone, and adjust the temperature from anywhere. Some apps allow you to set timers and schedules to turn your air off or on during certain times of the day. Just set it and forget it.
