Smart Furnaces are the New Normal

There has been a meteoric rise in the use of technology in our homes in recent years. Smart homes comfort systems have increased in popularity due to homeowner interest in efficient and green technology. And smart heating systems are an important piece to keeping our homes sustainable for years to come.

Constantly Adapting

Unlike manual programmable thermostats, smart thermostats learn your patterns and are constantly adjusting themselves for maximum efficiency. A smart thermostat can be adjusted from your phone via a wifi connection, allowing you to make sure your system is never running needlessly.

You can also program heating patterns that match your lifestyle. A weekend getaway doesn’t mean you’re pumping air into an empty home.

Environmental Adjustments

In addition to controlling the heat in your entire home, some smart units allow you to control the temperature in different areas of your home. Allowing you to heat the rooms you use most often, and letting the ones you don’t use stay a little cooler.
