Have you ever had this conversation around the dinner table? “Honey, I heard there were some power outages around Vail, do you think our ski home is OK?” You respond with a frown on your face, “Well, I guess I can take a day off work tomorrow and go check it out, but it’s going to be a real inconvenience.” If that’s still happening to you, it’s past time to call Climate Control Company and move into the 21st century when it comes to systems control.
Let us add a Wi-Fi enabled programmable thermostat by Honeywell to that vacation home so you know what’s happening just by looking at your phone. All it takes is a Wi-Fi network for the thermostat to connect to, and an app you download to your mobile device. As long as the network is operational, you can check the temperature in the home and the status of your heating and cooling systems. If you decide to make a spur-of-the-moment trip, just use your phone to turn the heat up, or the air conditioning down, and the house will be comfortable when you arrive.
A programmable Honeywell thermostat is a great first step, but the world of home and building automation is advancing at light speed, and Climate Control can do much more to help you manage that vacation home. We are one of the few HVAC installation companies in Aspen and all of the Western Slope with an entire division dedicated to systems control.
We feature the Honeywell WEBs software, which does much more than just turn the heat up or down. There are several other modules which can be connected to the software. It can give you control of the humidity levels if you have a whole house humidifier. You can even monitor and control the indoor air quality. The possibilities are nearly endless.
The WEBs software is the perfect solution for vacation homes that may sit empty for weeks at a time. It is fully customizable for partial occupancy situations. Using the software, you can set up a calendar of operation to tell the system when the home is going to be unoccupied, and when to get it ready for your arrival. The software can also alert you and Climate Control if there’s a problem, before you end up with a frozen home.
So, let’s stop living in the last century and end the concern about what’s happening in your home at the ski resort hours away. There’s no longer any need to brave snowy mountain roads to check on it in person. Call Climate Control Company now to learn about the latest in systems control technology. Comfort driven, Colorado style since 1956.
