7 High-Tech Upgrades for Your Galveston Home
Tech innovations can modernize your living space and make it more comfortable for you and your family. Find out how to outfit your Galveston, Texas, home with the latest high-tech upgrades or devices, such as money-saving smart power outlets or a convenient instant hot water dispenser.
Adaptable-speed furnaces and heat pumps deliver a comfortable, stable indoor temperature with outstanding energy efficiency. HVAC units that repeatedly turn on and off to reach their target temperatures are not efficient. Adaptable HVAC units adjust their working speed to the environment, functioning between 40 and 100 percent capacity. These units are smart enough to sense the temperature and work longer and slower, maximizing efficiency and energy savings.
At Davis Air Conditioning & Heating, we have several Carrier furnace and heat pumps with Greenspeed Intelligence. This adaptable-speed, state-of-the-art technology adapts to your house, and with its high operating efficiency, you’ll see savings on your energy bills.
Smart Power Outlets
Wi-Fi enabled devices help you to automate your life, but switching over every appliance, such as your coffee maker, to Wi-Fi control can be expensive. For a cost-effective path to a smart home, consider using power outlets you can control through your home’s Wi-Fi network.
The simplest smart outlet allows you to activate or power off the outlet with your smartphone. With advanced features, you can remotely control the outlet’s power and track and report energy usage. You can also set up proximity usage so that the power shuts off when you and your smartphone leave the room, further conserving power.
Imagine drying off with a warm towel after every shower or bath. A towel warmer is a heated drying rack that keeps your towels at a comfortable temperature. Install a towel warmer in your bathroom for a cozy, fresh-from-the-dryer experience.
Try using the unit to heat up your pajamas before bed or to reduce moisture in your bathroom. Towel warmers come in floor- and wall-mounted models that can plug into existing outlets.
Thermostats Controlled Through Wi-Fi Networks
Your life doesn’t always follow a precise schedule, and a thermostat controlled through a Wi-Fi network allows you the flexibility to adjust your home’s temperature without having to be home to manually turn a dial or push a button. Using a mobile app or accessing your thermostat’s controls through the internet, you can remotely control your home’s HVAC system to suit your schedule.
Advanced thermostat models are programmable, run energy-saving diagnostics, and can remind you to change your air filter. Contact our experts at Davis Air Conditioning & Heating to help you select the best smart thermostat for your home.
Touchless faucets are common in public buildings, but you should also consider installing them in your own home. Readily available in hardware stores, touchless faucets have many benefits: They stay cleaner than manual fixtures, save water, and reduce the spread of germs.
Using a touchless faucet in your home can keep your family healthy and maximize convenience for all family members.
Instant Hot Water Dispensers
If you often use hot water, you will rejoice after getting an instant hot water dispenser. Connected to your hot water supply, a dispenser is typically installed next to the kitchen sink and provides hot, near-boiling water instantly.
With a hot water dispenser, you won’t have to wait for water to get hot to make oatmeal, brew a cup of tea, or thaw frozen vegetables.
Your home’s heating and air conditioning systems keep you comfortable, but without proper care, these units may aggravate air quality problems. If you’re concerned about indoor air quality, consider installing an HVAC ultraviolet (UV) lamp.
A UV lamp fits inside an HVAC system; the lamp kills mold and bacteria that grow on the moist HVAC coils. Sterilizing the inside of your HVAC system with a UV lamp ensures that allergens won’t spread throughout your home.
At Davis Air Conditioning & Heating, we’ve installed and serviced HVAC systems in the Galveston, Texas, area since 1971.
