Smart Homes

Now you can apply the convenience and efficiency of your smartphone to your entire home. Smart home technology connects everything from your HVAC to your security, to your lighting, and allows you to control it all from the convenience of your phone. You can get started transforming your home into a smart home by installing a smart thermostat.

Thermally-Driven Air Conditioning

While smart home technology is becoming widely used, thermally-driven air conditioning is still gaining traction. This technology, created in Australia, is a far cheaper alternative to conventional air conditioning. Thermally-driven AC is run by solar panels that absorb enough power to keep you comfortable in even extreme temperatures. Not only does this method of air conditioning eliminate dependence on the electrical grid system, but it also is said to provide better cooling than conventional air conditioning. Keep an eye out for this technology!

Motion-Activated Air Conditioning

Motion-activated lighting has become much more popular in recent years, and the same principle is currently in development for HVAC systems. This system was developed at MIT. A motion-activated AC works by utilizing aluminum rods in your ceiling, each of which has motion sensors attached. When these sensors detect movement below, the AC kicks on. This, too, is technology that aims to increase efficient HVAC use in the home. This technology is still in the early stages of implementation.
