Improving the energy efficiency of your home starts with upgrading your heating and cooling system. Simple upgrades like a programmable thermostat go along with energy conservation and reducing your bills. Here is a brief discussion about ComfortLink thermostats and how they can benefit your Frederick, MD, home.
What Is a ComfortLink Smart Thermostat?
The ComfortLink smart thermostat comes in several versions that offer learning abilities and automatic temperature adjustment. They also allow for remote control via a mobile app on your smartphone and laptop. ComfortLink will not only save you energy but also create zones in your home for customized heating and cooling.
The thermostat receives information about your HVAC system in real-time and optimizes its performance. It also uses this data to diagnose the system for potential problems in real-time. Your system’s dashboard and Nexia Diagnostics display this information.
With permission, your HVAC contractor can access the diagnostic data and assess the state of your system. The information helps your local contractor know more about your system even before you make calls. That means you can receive timely service and prevent repeat visits.
Smart Home Hub
ComfortLink comes with an in-built Nexia Bridge that helps you create a smart home hub. The plug-and-play home hub offers more than just heating and cooling control. Using wireless Z-Wave communication technology, you can connect about 200 different devices.
The hub connects smart devices such as lights and speakers like Google Home. However, controlling all other devices apart from the HVAC system requires a monthly subscription fee. Remember to talk to your local Trane products dealer about this fee.
Large Touch-Screen Display
ComfortLink comes with a 7-inch, full-color, touch-screen wall-mount display. The screen allows you to do everything, from adjusting the temperature to viewing the outdoor temperature. It also has security settings that provide a screen lock, so no one can make unnecessary changes.
Choosing the right thermostat for your home will save you from expensive energy bills. For more information about HVAC installation, contact our team at Care Services Inc.
