I honestly wasn’t sure which path to take when it came to different heat and AC products.
- It was all so confusing like I didn’t know if I should get a programmable thermostat or a smart thermostat.
I didn’t know if I should get an advanced UV air purification system or just quality HEPA filters. There was so much I didn’t know and didn’t understand. Fortunately, I ended up calling a local contractor near me. The HVAC expert who came out told me all about modern HVAC technology like radiant heated floors, dual-fuel heating systems, ductless mini split air conditioners and more. He helped me figure things out with the thermostats. He told me how a programmable thermostat allows you to program your schedule for certain temperature control settings and permits you to save as much as 10% on your energy bills. He explained that smart thermostats being more high tech allow you to save up to 15% on the energy bills compared to traditional thermostats. They also have fancy features like remote control through the smart app on your phone and you receive regular updates on when to go for HVAC maintenance and when to change your air filters. I have to say, I was interested in going for a smart thermostat after hearing about some of the details. I also decided to have a dual-fuel heating system in my house. It uses a gas furnace working together with a heat pump to provide all my heating and cooling needs. The best thing is that this HVAC is highly energy efficient!
