A Higher Standard of Comfort
When air conditioning was first introduced in 1902, it was considered the greatest invention of the year. One hundred sixteen years later, it’s still one of the greatest inventions and has only gotten better due to technology. Nowadays, air conditioners don’t just blow out cool air, but have the “brains” to reduce your home’s humidity, run more efficiently to save money without giving up comfort, and even reduce allergens in the air.
It starts with variable speed, multi-stage technology.
The difference between this type of system and a standard system is that a variable speed, multi-stage system has the ability to sense indoor and outdoor conditions (temperature and humidity) and then automatically ramp its power up and down to match the actual cooling needs in your home. These systems save energy because they run at slower, energy saving speeds most of the time rather than at 100 percent capacity (full blast) all of the time, which is the only speed a standard system runs at. This technology not only results in quieter operation, but also in more consistent temperature and humidity control inside your home. Options include two-speed and five-speed systems.
If you haven’t heard of the Reme Halo , it’s an accessory that can be added to some of GVEC Home’s
HVAC systems to improve air quality and help reduce allergens. It uses an ionization process to neutralize odors, particulates, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors) smoke, mold, bacteria and viruses, and requires very little maintenance.
Thermostats are smarter, too.
All but the most basic thermostats are programmable, which means you can program them to automatically raise or lower your home’s temperature based on a schedule you create. In the summer, save energy by setting it to raise the temperature once you leave for work. Then cool your home down based on when you’ll arrive back home. Wi-Fi is the next step up, meaning you can control your thermostat via an app on your phone or computer. Smart thermostats are even “smarter.” They are Wi-Fi enabled and can be used with home automation to control your home’s heating and cooling. Some, like the Nest, are so intuitive, they figure out your schedule and preferences, and then do the programming for you.
