Boost Energy Efficiency, Lower Bills Up to 25 Percent 

Upgrading your system and installing a smart home thermostat will significantly reduce your utility expenses. The most energy-efficient heating and cooling products on the market are ductless mini-split systems. They will save as much as 25 percent on your energy bill. Further, an efficiently controlled thermostat save an additional 10 percent a year. 

Here’s how ductless mini-split systems work. Thin copper tubing is used to pump refrigerant from an outdoor compressor directly into an indoor air-handling unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space. This eliminates the need for basement or attic evaporators and bulky, expensive ductwork. Mini-splits are easy to install and usually require only a 3- to 4-inch hole through a wall or ceiling to connect the indoor and outdoor units.

Customized Home Comfort Control

Take control of your comfort. Most HVAC manufacturers offer apps that enable systems to be controlled from anywhere using a mobile device. Now, voice-control capability uses digital assistants to verbally dictate home temperatures—“Alexa, set the living room temperature to 70 degrees.” For instance, Fujitsu offers a free app that enables Web-activated control via mobile devices and now voice-activated control via Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
