The Power of Home Automation—Control Your House Straight From Your Phone

There are a lot of things to remember when it comes to maintaining a safe and comfortable home. Between turning down the thermostat while you’re at work, switching off lights in rooms not being used, and locking doors when you leave the house, it’s easy to forget something. Fortunately, home automation makes everything easy to do. The experts at Cliff Bergin & Associates break down the reasons why automation can enhance your home comfort.

Control Home Temperatures

Say goodbye to fiddling with the thermostat to find your ideal comfort level. Home automation enables you to schedule your indoor temperature—you can turn down the thermostat while you’re at work or on vacation and back up again by the time you get home. And if that regulation wasn’t reason enough, consider how lowering your home temperature for eight hours a day can save you as much as 10 percent on heating and cooling costs.

Get Alerts at the First Signs of Trouble

Leaky pipes and heating system breakdowns are both frustrating and expensive. Thankfully, home automation can help curb the troubles that come with repairs—automated systems send alerts to your phone the moment they detect a unit malfunction or a leak in your plumbing. Those notices keep you on top of everything, enabling you to call in an expert for help before any more damage is done.

Home Management Insights

Home automation’s benefits extend beyond just convenience—they also include helping you save money on your energy bills. These systems keep track of how much energy your home comfort systems use on average, pinpointing the days and times where usage spikes. That data can help you come up with a plan to reduce energy consumption (which means lower energy costs).
