Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning: 2017 Is the Year for Smart Home Comfort

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Airconditioners–You are winding up the day at work. At home, the oven turns on to cook
dinner —and it lets the air conditioning system know. The AC then
automatically adjusts to deliver more cool air to the kitchen to
counteract the oven’s additional heat.

That’s the type of advanced home interconnectivity that is on the
horizon, and 2017 could be a watershed year for advancements in how your
home’s HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system functions as
part of your smart home.

“Smart phones revolutionized our lives in part because they enabled
countless apps to make our lives easier and richer in more automated
ways,” said Rob Haines, marketing manager for Service
Heating & Air Conditioning (, one of
North America’s largest HVAC service companies. “We predict that in
2017, app developers will focus even more on newer Smart Home device
apps that let all of your home’s systems and appliances interact, and
some apps will include new advancements in how your home’s HVAC system
works to keep you comfortable.”

For example, smart thermostats and sophisticated newer HVAC systems can
currently send alerts to the homeowner about energy usage and regular
maintenance such as filter changes. Future systems enhancements may
identify a potential furnace or AC failure before it happens and alert
the heating and air conditioning repair company to contact the homeowner
to schedule a system inspection. The technician will arrive with advance
knowledge about the specific problem, allowing them to have on-hand the
correct parts to repair it.

Another advancement may be the innovative development of the use of
infrared heat sensing inside the home that could help determine which
rooms are in use by family and guests—and direct heating and cooling
specifically to those rooms.

“Zoned heating and cooling systems have been one of the fastest growing
parts of the HVAC industry for several years, and that will remain a big
opportunity to increase the comfort of the home,” said Haines.
“Increasingly, systems will focus on heating and cooling specific rooms
or groups of rooms as needed to enhance comfort and energy efficiency,
versus heating and cooling the whole house all the time.”

While January is a great time to look at trends for the year, it’s also
a good time to take advantage of savings that will pay off in the coming
months. “January and February is traditionally our biggest sale of the
year on new HVAC systems, and our centers nationwide are offering free
or deeply discounted equipment when you buy a qualifying item, such as a
free (or deeply discounted) furnace when you purchase a qualifying air
conditioner,” said Haines. “Furnace tune-ups are also deeply discounted
in time for the coldest months of the year.”
