Over the years, the HVAC industry has advanced at a rapid pace, developing new technologies and features that are designed to improve indoor comfort and energy efficiency. If you’re in the market for a replacement air conditioner for your Alabama home, consider investing in a unit that features at least one of these three awesome high-tech upgrades.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats allow you to remotely control your home’s temperature via your smartphone, tablet, or PC. They work by connecting your HVAC unit and thermostat to an app that can be downloaded onto a mobile device of your choosing. Once you download the app, you can control your home’s temperature from almost anywhere.

In addition to basic temperature control, some smart thermostats can also “learn” your schedule by tracking your temperature settings. Others can even determine when you’re on your way home and automatically set your desired temperature so that you’re comfortable when you walk through the door.

Scroll Technology

Are you sick of hearing that constant humming sound coming from your air conditioner? If so, you may want to upgrade to an AC that uses scroll technology. This feature pressurizes AC refrigerant faster and more efficiently than conventional piston-driven technology does, resulting in a quieter cooling system. Scroll technology also requires fewer moveable parts to operate, so it tends to last longer than its conventional counterpart.

Variable Speed Motors

Variable speed motors automatically adjust air flow to maximize home comfort. They do this by blowing air at a slower pace when cooling demands are low and faster when cooling demands are high. This varying speed ensures even cooling, reduces temperature swings, and increases energy-efficiency. Does your Alabama home feel humid and stuffy in the summer? Do you suffer from allergies or asthma? Variable speed motors can also help reduce humidity levels and keep indoor air quality high.

There are many wonderful high-tech upgrades for you to take advantage of this summer. So what are you waiting for? Visit AC Southeast® today to find out how our air conditioning services can help you upgrade.
