Distributed smart controls for cooling and heating systems have emerged as part of an overall increase in the availability and popularity of smart devices. The rise in popularity of smart devices has conditioned many of us to expect near-instant access to information, entertainment, commerce and people. Now, individuals are looking to optimize their home’s comfort with the same technologies.
Our latest white paper, Heating Optimization with Distributed Smart Controls, details this evolution and the benefits of applying distributed smart controls to cooling and heating systems. Particular attention is given to how distributed smart controls simplify system configuration for HVAC contractors while intelligently coordinating heating sources to achieve comfort, energy efficiency and cost control. In addition to meeting the modern homeowner’s expectations for connectivity and remote control of home environments, distributed smart controls automatically manage changeover, help homeowners take advantage of complex time-of-use billing schemes and simplify compliance with energy-related building standards such as California’s Title 24.
