I recently moved to a new neighborhood & have been home hunting. I was looking for new amenities that generally come included in a newer building. I was undoubtedly pleasantly surprised to find that many of the home buildings here are equipped with the conveniences I was looking for and replaced appliances. The biggest surprise I found was that so many buildings include a smart control component in their units. A smart control component is important to me for many reasons, and first, I am environmentally conscious however I also love to be comfortable. I don’t want a control component that is preprogrammed to turn on & off at certain times because our schedule changes all the time. But I also don’t want to waste energy by having our air conditioner or heat on all the time. So to be able to turn our heat up or our air conditioner down when I am on our way new home is a immense benefit to me, i don’t have to think guilty about wasting energy however I can still walk into a perfectly heated or cooled home… The minute reason is because I have pets. If, when I leave the new home it is a acceptable temperature, then I often don’t turn the heat or cooling system on. But if the day gets unexpectedly sizzling or chilly then it is a immense benefit to be able to chance up our iphone & make sure the temperature in our new home is safe for our pets, then having a smart control component can save money & help preserve our planet.
