What Are the Features of Today’s Modern HVAC Units?

Technology has disrupted almost all aspects of our lives, including how we heat and cool our homes. Thanks to technological advancements in the HVAC industry, modern heating and cooling equipment is more efficient than ever before. If you desire maximum energy savings and optimal comfort, consider upgrading your HVAC system by investing in the most up-to-date components. Here are some of the new HVAC technologies you should have in your home.

Customizable Thermostat

A simple way to upgrade your HVAC system is by installing a programmable thermostat, which gives you a more convenient way to control the system. While this device is hardly new, it’s unfortunate that many homeowners still haven’t upgraded from the manual varieties.

With a programmable thermostat, you can automatically change the temperature your HVAC system maintains during the hours you’re asleep or away from home. That significantly reduces energy consumption.

Even better, you can invest in advanced programmable thermostats that have received even further upgrades. These high-tech thermostats can sync with your smartphone to figure out when you’re at home and when you’ve left. They can learn your habits and then adjust their settings to suit your lifestyle.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

These systems make it easy and affordable for you to have a comfortable home without expensive, bulky ductwork. They’re great for home additions, particularly where duct installation isn’t possible. Newer ductless systems have been enhanced to work in conjunction with the latest technology. You can now operate them with your smart device.

Alternative Energy Sources

Today’s high cost of energy makes it an excellent idea to look for alternative heating and cooling options. Fortunately, heat pumps work well in Yuma’s warm climate. They can operate together with other HVAC systems.

Solar-powered systems are also a great alternative to traditional systems. The good news is they’re becoming more and more affordable, and you can control them from your phone or tablet.

In the long run, your pocketbook will thank you for choosing to use up-to-date HVAC technology. If you have any questions about upgrading your HVAC system, contact us at Hansberger Refrigeration and Electric Company. We proudly serve the Yuma area with quality HVAC services and superior products.
