Your control over your air conditioner can go far beyond turning the thermostat or down a few degrees. With the right software, you can make sure that your air conditioner remains in good condition and you can control your AC much more effectively. You can also have your AC monitored remotely.
Control Your AC with Your Smartphone
With the right software, you can control your AC from anywhere using a smartphone. This allows you to turn your AC up when you will be heading home unexpectedly. You will never have to come home to a hot home. Or, if you need to change a date on a calendar, you can do this immediately while you are thinking of it.
Setting up your smartphone to control your AC allows you to avoid having a remote sitting around. You often have your smartphone with you and you can manipulate your air conditioner even when you are away from home. You can easily turn the AC up or down if you do not feel comfortable enough.
Lower Energy Costs
One of the great things about controlling your AC from your computer is that you can improve energy savings. The computer can be programmed to operate at different temperatures during different times of the day and on different days. You could even open a digital calendar and set days for when you will be away.
Monitor Your AC for Potential Breakdowns
In addition to having more control over your AC, there are software programs that can remotely monitor your AC to significantly reduce the risk that you will have an unexpected breakdown. Through the use of sensors and diagnostics, a technician can determine when your air conditioner is likely to break down.
When trouble begins, technicians can come to the scene and perform the necessary repairs. Oftentimes, the early repairs that should be performed can prevent the AC from breaking down and requiring more expensive repairs in the future.
If your AC is consuming a lot more electricity than usual and this is not explained by the weather, you may have an AC that is defective and forced to work harder to cool your home. You may also have evaporator coils that have become dirty and must be cleaned.
Fortunately, if you are having your AC monitored remotely, AC repair technicians will likely already have identified the cause of your energy-guzzling AC and will already have a solution ready.Share

While sitting in my living room on a hot summer day, I could feel the heat coming through the ceiling out of my attic and making the house warm up more than it should. I crawled up into the attic one evening to find out that the roof vents weren't working any longer because they were clogged with all sorts of debris. Did you know that when this happens, your home's temperature can rise to very uncomfortable levels? Did you know that your home could actually be damaged if the attic isn't well vented? This blog will show you all about attic ventilation.
