How Smart Air-conditioning can improve your life!

Luckily, we have the team at RF Refrigeration & Airconditioning on hand to tackle all of these. You’ll be amazed what smart air conditioning can do for your household.

WHAT CAN A SMART AIR CONDITIONER DO?

Smart air conditioning systems can connect to other smart devices in your home to better control temperature levels. Smart devices are electronic devices that can wirelessly connect to other smart devices.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A SMART AIR CONDITIONER?

• Remotely control your air conditioner from anywhere that you have internet access, so you can arrive home to a cool house.
• The system will automatically control the temperature in each room, no more fiddling with the temperature when it gets too hot or cold.
• If one wanted to take things to the next level, the air conditioner could be set to automatically switch on and off, depending on the internal or external temperature and automatically put itself onto heating or cooling mode, depending on the temperature. There would be no need to ever touch the air conditioner remote again, it would just work itself!

All of these features will not only make your home more comfortable, they will also reduce your energy bills because you’ll be air conditioning your home more efficiently, depending on usage, this can improve energy consumption for the air conditioners between 20 and 40%.

HOW TO MAKE AN AIR CONDITIONER SMART

On a ducted (or centralised system), a controller is connected to a tablet that connects to the homes WiFi. The app on the tablet that controls the system is where you can program exactly how you want to make the system function in numerous smart ways.

HOW DOES A SMART ZONING SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONER WORK?

A normal centralised system can only supply all the connected rooms with the same air temperature, regardless of the actual temperature in the room. This leaves some rooms being hotter or colder than others. A smart zoning system air conditioner can detect different temperatures in different zones or rooms of your home. Each zone or room has its own thermostat and air is allowed into that specific room based on the current temperature and temperature settings. This means that once the temperature in the room reaches the specified climate, it will reduce the amount of air needed to keep the room temperate and thereby use less electricity. Furthermore, rooms that aren’t being used can be switched off, also saving electricity.

HOW TO CONNECT AN AIR CONDITIONER TO WIFI

If you have a smart air conditioner, you can connect it to WiFi by using an appropriate app. You can then remotely control your unit by using your phone over WiFi or mobile data. You’re no longer limited to just using the unit’s designated remote control.
