One of the biggest improvements you can make to your home in Marathon, Florida, is to add smart technology. Many smart-technology upgrades are relatively simple, but they make a huge difference in your daily life. Start your quest for home automation by considering these three smart-technology options for your air conditioner.

Smart Thermostats

Installing a smart thermostat is an easy way to boost the efficiency of your HVAC system and lower your monthly energy bill. Smart thermostats allow you to control your home’s heating and cooling settings from a smartphone app. You can program different settings for different days or times, and some models can even learn your habits and adapt automatically. The Trane TruComfort systems available from Ellington Air Conditioning & Heat even work with the Nexia Home Intelligence app.

HVAC Add-Ons

Smart thermostats can control more than just your heating and air conditioning. Many can also be linked to HVAC add-ons like whole-home air purifiers or dehumidifiers. Others work with smart vents, which give you room-by-room control over air flow and temperature.

Among the devices that sync with Nexia are sensors that detect motion, CO2 levels, light, temperature, and more. These sensors can not only help alert you to problems in real time but also enable you to take countermeasures remotely. Some even make changes for you, like turning on the lights when motion is detected or switching on your HVAC system when the temperature climbs above the range you set.

Zoned Air Conditioning

Another smart option to consider is zoned ductless air conditioning. This type of system is available from Mitsubishi and allows you to set different temperatures for different parts of your home. That way, you aren’t paying to cool your guest bedroom when no one is using it or sending cold air to the upstairs bedrooms when everyone is downstairs during the day. To sweeten the deal, all Mitsubishi ductless systems feature advanced multi-stage air filtration and smart controls.
