As we’ve moved into the new decade, we’ve seen a distinct rise in everything smart technology—from smartphones to smart TVs, to even smart lighting systems. So, it only makes sense that heating and air systems would get their own subset of smart products.
This article will cover the newest smart HVAC technology for 2022, as well as what you can expect from costs and where to get your smart HVAC products. Let’s get started!
#1: Smart Wall Unit Thermostats
With so many things being voice-activated these days, it comes as no surprise that there would be smart wall unit thermostats that are both touchscreen and respond to voice commands. With one of these, you can easily set the temperature of your home just by telling your thermostat to do so.
For one of these units, you can expect to pay anywhere from $60 to $400 depending on how many features or how high-tech you want to go. Admittedly, however, this is relatively inexpensive compared to the bulk majority of smart products on the market.
#2: Application-Based Thermostats
We’ve also seen a distinct rise in the use of application-based thermostats in recent months. With this type of thermostat, you simply install your compatible wall thermostat, download an app on your phone, and from there you can control the temperature of your home effortlessly no matter where you are.
With these types of thermostats, you can also view important insights such as live feeds of energy expenditures. Some apps will even give you tips on how you can improve your energy usage and save money!
With units like these, you can expect to pay around the same amount as a general smart wall unit thermostat, as that’s where most of the tech for this design is located. Once again, however, this is pretty inexpensive when you compare it to many other smart products on the market.
#3: Smart Air Filtration Systems
Air filtration goes hand-in-hand with air conditioning. Usually, your air filtration will consist of an actual filter that is slid into your physical air conditioner to filter out unwanted particulates.
With smart air filtration systems, however, you have much more control over what enters your home. These systems allow you to select different levels of air filtration according to your personal needs. This factor makes these systems perfect for those who have compromised immune systems or who suffer from allergies.
These systems tend to run a little more expensive because of the amount of technology involved in them, but they are still relatively affordable for the benefit they provide. Generally, you can expect a smart air filtration system to run about $300-$700, though there are budget models and luxury models on either end of that scale that fall outside of that range.
