Smartphones have become a way of life today, allowing us to manage all kinds of media and technology. Smart air conditioning now comes as standard with air conditioning systems, allowing users to optimise energy use from anywhere.
Smart air conditioning can be installed in any type and size of building. Managers of large commercial buildings, and businesses with multiple sites, can control all of the building services through Bluetooth or cloud-based technology; lighting, water heating, ventilation, and air conditioning can be controlled remotely via Tablet, iOS, Android, PC, or laptops, helping to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs.
Smart air conditioning can also be voice-controlled via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, so you don’t even need to pick up your smart device.
Domestic air conditioning systems also come with smart technology built in, helping to keep running costs low wherever you may be. Smart air conditioning is way ahead of other domestic appliances when it comes to smart living, and it can also increase the value of your property.
The purpose of smart technology is to make life easier and put people in control of their climate and energy use. Here are 5 ways that smart air conditioning can save you money.
1. Remote management of temperatures
Smart air conditioning allows you to set and control the temperature of a room, even when you’re not at home or work. You can use the pre-set timers to tell the system when to come on and when to go off. You can also see the temperature in your home from your smartphone, giving you control over when to turn on the air conditioning.
2. Control multiple air conditioning units
If you have more than one air conditioning unit – a split system - you can control each unit individually; you can turn one off and allow others to come on, and you can set the temperature on each unit, ensuring that energy is only being used where it needs to be.
3. Set temperatures for different spaces
Whether you are a business owner, a landlord, or a parent with teenagers, smart air conditioning allows to you set temperatures so that you stay in control of energy use. A communal area may require a different temperature than a bedroom or office, and areas with equipment that generate a lot of heat will require additional cooling.
4. Monitor energy consumption
Smart air conditioning controls allow users to monitor the kWh usage for different periods; a day, a week, a month or a year. Some controls even have daylight settings that will automatically turn on the air conditioning when it starts to get light or dark, again optimising energy use.
5. Motion sensor technology
Many new air conditioning systems come with motion sensor technology which detects movement in a room; when there is no movement after a set period of time it turns the air conditioning off and comes on as soon as someone enters the room. This is a great way to reduce energy use and avoid situations where air conditioning units are left on all day in areas that are not being used. They are ideal for meeting rooms or hotel rooms.
Smart air conditioning is manufactured to minimise the use of energy and to give users full control over temperatures and usage. Smart controls have the ability to provide 24-hour / 365-day monitoring of single or entire systems which can cut running costs by at least 25%.
