Eight Ways Climate Control Improves Your Home

Did you know that the first ever climate control system was called “comfort control” and was built for the inside of a Cadillac in 1964? Since then, this essential upgrade in heating and cooling systems is one that most of us can hardly go without. 

Whether at home, in a car, or somewhere else, the steady balance of a comfortable temperature is a feature we often take for granted.

Indoor climate control technology has only continued to advance over the years, and its latest home benefits might surprise you. Here are some key features of installing a modern climate control system and eight ways they improve your home.

1. The Best Way to Stay at Your Ideal Temperature

When you have a smart thermostat with climate control, you might find that the most noticeable change is that it frees up your hands. Gone are the days of constantly fiddling with the thermostat, hoping your air conditioning and heating system will somehow battle it out to achieve your perfect temperature.

With climate control, you can simply set your ideal temperature and expect it to be maintained.

2. Cooling and Heating Combined

An essential feature of climate control is how it revolutionizes your home’s entire heating and air conditioning systems, effectively combining them into one. A smart thermostat means a smart HVAC system is there to match.

You’ll no longer need separate heating and cooling systems to compete with each other. Instead, both are streamlined and optimized into a single balanced system to continuously hold a comfortable indoor temperature.

3. Energy Efficiency

As previously mentioned, a smart HVAC system means that the separate functions of a heating system and an AC unit are smoothly streamlined into a single machine. The end result is a climate control system that only uses the energy it needs to hold a mild, steady temperature in your home.

In the long run, this makes a substantial difference in creating a more energy-efficient household. The less energy your home uses to power separate heating and cooling systems, the more money you’ll save on energy costs.

While installing a modern climate control system may seem daunting at first (time and price-wise), it’s an investment that’ll save you more money as time passes.

4. A Safer, Healthier Home

Homes without effective climate control systems are all the more exposed to drastic swings in temperature. As seasons change or outdoor weather grows unpredictable, a home that’s unprepared to adjust accordingly becomes vulnerable to various harmful effects.

For example, prolonged low temperatures can lead to illnesses and colds, whereas too much warmth can cause dehydration and heat strokes.

Additionally, the heightened air conditioning power of a modern climate control system can eradicate airborne irritants and mold from areas where they’ll otherwise accumulate.

5. Protection for Your Possessions

Climate control doesn’t just mean an added layer of protection for your family’s health and comfort on those extreme-temperature days. More careful control over the infiltration of outdoor conditions guarantees added safety for your belongings as well.

As humidity levels rise, moisture is likely to accumulate in areas of your residence. As a combined force, heat and humidity can cause damage to a home’s interior, particularly to wood and fabrics.

Climate control works to filter out excess moisture, leaving your belongings and furnishings safer than ever.

6. Climate Control Is Quiet

We all know the sound this is referencing. That ever-present, loud humming that comes from a heating system or AC unit firing into gear the moment your thermostat picks up something to change. 

Familiar as it may be, that sudden whirring can be annoying, distracting, and unnecessary every time, let’s say, a certain temperature by a window is no longer being met. 

In contrast, modern climate control systems are designed to be as quiet as possible during operation. A smart HVAC system is all the less likely to break your concentration, which is especially important as remote work becomes increasingly common.

7. Unexpected Comfort and Productivity

Did you know the best temperature for healthy sleep is approximately 65 degrees Fahrenheit

This is a significant difference from the best temperature to keep oneself productive, around 71 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit, which also happens to be most people’s favored room temperature.

No matter where you are in your day’s routine, climate control is there to meet you. You might be surprised by how much your productivity and sleep improve with something as simple as a few minor tweaks to room temperature.

8. Compatibility With Green Energy

As discussed earlier, a smart thermostat contributes to improved household energy efficiency. 

What’s more, a modern climate control system can pair and integrate with other systems such as lighting control, motorized window treatments, and more to further reduce the energy consumption of your household. 

Additionally, you can enjoy added efficiency by powering your climate control system with solar energy or heat pumps. The right smart HVAC system can fit into your vision.
