Technology is fast changing almost everything around us – home heating is no exception. HVAC manufacturers are stepping up their games and coming up with energy-efficient upgrades on our beloved classics.
Below, we talk about some of the latest trends and news n the home heating business. Read on and be “in-the-know”.
Programmable SMART Thermostats
We all have heard of programmable thermostats and may very well have one installed already, but the industry is coming up with intuitive and smart thermostats built for efficient energy consumption.
SMART thermostats allow you to intuitively program the temperature at any given time. This means you can program your thermostat to lower the heating during specific hours when no one is home - which makes for maximum energy efficiency.
Manufacturers are also innovating the way we connect to our thermostat by providing wireless connectivity. Consumers now have the option to adjust their home's heating through their smart phone via Wi-Fi.
Eco-friendly Heat Pumps
Many believe that heat pumps are the way of the future. Heat pumps make use of sustainable heating sources instead of just relying on electricity. Many have heard of heat pump before but it has seen vast advancements in the past few years. New homeowners can benefit from looking into geothermal and eco-friendly heat pumps.
Air Filtration Systems
If you’ve had your home for a while, chances are, you have an out dated heating system. Older heating systems would send clouds of dust and irritants that cause severe allergies and health complications when overlooked. Nowadays, there are systems that have advanced air filtration systems that only remove harmful allergens but are pretty easy to clean – a great deal if you ask us.
Energy Efficient Systems
Newer heating systems may not look and work all that different but the way they use energy has vastly improved. Just as thermostats are becoming more and more intuitive, heating systems are becoming more and more efficient models.
If you haven’t updated your heating system in a while, you might want to look into it. Investing in a newer model may have higher up front costs but can save you a whole lot more in the long run.
