What Are Some Benefits Of A Smart Home?
If you are like most Americans and have a smartphone, then you know what a convenience it is to use any of the delightful applications offered on the device. From voice texting friends to finding your way on Google Maps, smartphone technology has made all of our lives easier. Smart technology has also found a way into our homes as well. Smart Home Automation takes advantage of advancing technology and combines it with the needs and wants of homeowners such as: security, energy efficiency, heating and cooling, lighting, and music. Honestly, who wouldn’t love being able to control lighting, entertainment and temperature from their couch, or even when you are not home?
Complete home automation may sound complicated and expensive, but in reality many systems are very affordable and have a litany of benefits. Here at Morris Heating and Air Conditioning, we know that heating and cooling your home automatically can be both a money saver and energy saver. Here are a few more reasons why installing smart technology may be the way to go for convenience factor, financial savings and security.
- Energy Efficiency – Since our focus is on heating and cooling, we know that one of the best advantages of having a smart home is the ability of the system to help homeowners manage their consumption of energy. For example, smart home technology can allow the thermostat to be set to let the indoor temperature drop during the day before returning it to a more comfortable level just before homeowners arrive in the evening.
- Security – Smart homes include advanced security systems with cameras, motion sensors and a link to the local police station, or a private security company.
- Convenience – Convenience is a major factor of why homeowners add smart technology to their home or build with the technology in mind. These homes give users remote access to systems including heating and cooling systems, intercoms, lighting, music and multimedia devices throughout the home.
- Resale – The investment of a smart home is well worth it when it comes time to sell. Homes with automated systems have the potential to sell for much more than comparable homes with conventional technologies.
