Over the summer, we were looking to buy a house. There were so many options. Did we want a house with land or did we want a house in a “cookie cutter” neighborhood. Did we need a 3 bedroom or 4 bedroom house? What school district did we want to live in? How energy efficient is the home?
All of these factors can greatly impact your monthly budget. We decided to go with a new home in a cookie cutter neighborhood. It’s in a great school district and it should be many years before we need to replace anything. But one of the biggest factors we wanted a new home was because it was a lot more energy efficient.
You do not need to buy a new home to take advantage of Smart Technology. When you add products to your home that are “smart” you will be more comfortable at home and also be more energy efficient.
I love the features that are available from The iComfort® S30 thermostat. It is a wireless-enabled touchscreen thermostat. It controls your entire system from the wall, like a standard thermostat, while also allowing you to monitor and adjust your temperature from anywhere in the world, using smartphone, tablet or laptop. I love this option because I have left the house and realized I set the temperature really high or low. With the iComfort® S30 thermostat I can adjust the temperature, no matter where I am!
The thermostat also features live weather forecast and automatic updates. You can also get alerts and reminders sent to you via email or accessed through your mobile app. This will tell you if there’s a problem with your system or if maintenance is required. Smart technology is so efficient!
One of my favorite features is The Smart Away™ mode. It uses your mobile phone’s GPS to sense when you come and go, adjusting the temperatures accordingly to save energy and maximize comfort. So while you are at work it adjusts the temperature so your heating or air conditioning is not running all day. But it knows when you are near your home so it can get it ready for you.
The Feels Like™ temperature takes into account temperature and humidity to make your home feel exactly like you want it. So 72 degrees feels like 72 degrees.
If you have allergies, the The iComfort® S30 could help make allergy season a little easier. The Allergen Defender monitors the air quality and pollen levels of your local ZIP code and automatically turns the fan on to clean your home’s air when outdoor levels are high.
The iComfort® S30 is like having a personal assistant in your house monitoring the air in your home all the time. It takes care of you and is energy efficient.
