There was a time when however hot you could make a fire was as hot as your heater would get, usually just in the primary room of the home. As technology developed, most of us did away with solid fuel and started relying on other sources for heat, those other sources becoming more controllable as the technology developed yet further. We can even control our HVAC systems with our voice nowadays.


Aside from the novelty of being able to talk to your HVAC system, a technologically clever thermostat gives us so much more. The ability to zone certain areas means that we don’t have to heat or cool every single part of the home just because we want to get comfortable in the primary room. We can now choose to heat or cool as we want – a cooler bedroom, a warmer downstairs – bespoke temperatures for our needs.


The ability to control temperature and timings has a great effect on how our HVAC systems work, no longer do they need to be on all day long, wasting valuable energy, we can switch it so it comes on at certain times or certain temperatures or a combination of both.


Of course, being able to control the heating or cooling with this degree of flexibility helps to reduce the energy usage vastly. Lowering energy usage isn’t just good for the planet, it’s good for our wallets as well. Win-Win.
