Technology is continually changing and evolving the products that we use and the way we live our lives. It is even changing products that have not changed much in decades, such as heating and cooling equipment. The changes that are being made in the heating and cooling industry, thanks to high tech innovations are helping to increase the energy efficiency of the products we use, lengthen their lifespans, and provide greater heating and cooling options for our homes. Here are three of the various high tech innovations that have changed the heating and cooling industry recently.
Programmable thermostats have changed a lot over the past decade. These days, there are many high tech programmable thermostats on the market, such as the Nest thermostat. These thermostats allow you to do many different things, including programming what temperature you want your house to be based on the day and time, being able to place your thermostat in vacation mode when you are away from your home or even being able to change your thermostat settings from a Smart Phone. Being able to program your thermostat helps to decrease usage when you are away, keeping your energy expenses as low as possible.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Geothermal heat pumps have actually been around and in use for decades. However, the parts for heat pumps used to be extremely expensive, making it unattainable for most homeowners. Thanks to technology, heat pumps have decreased in price and increased in reliability and lifespan. A heat pump takes heat that is naturally stored below the ground and pumps it into a home, reducing the resources that it takes to produce heat for your home. When it is hot outside, the heat pump works in reverse, pumping heat out of your home to help keep it cool.

Movement Activated Heating and Cooling Systems
The final high tech innovation in the heating and cooling world is movement or motion-activated heating and cooling systems. The same technology that is used in motion-activated lights, cameras, and alarm systems can let your heating and cooling system know if someone is home or not. If someone is not home, the unit will not run, or will not run as frequently. If motion is detected, the unit will kick on and heat or cool your home.
