HVAC Air Conditioning Indianapolis: Nest 2.0 Part 2Posted by Chad Peterman on Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Along with the Enhanced Energy History feature that we talked about in Part 1 of this series on the Nest 2.0 software, the new Airwave™ feature is an added bonus in this much anticipated software update. It provides much need energy efficiency, especially as the air conditioning season is fast approaching.
The Airwave technology looks to control two of the main parts of your ac system, the blower and the compressor. The blower uses far less electricity than the compressor when in operation and Airwave takes advantage of this difference. Airwave will shut down your compressor before the temperature in the home reaches the thermostat set point and use the fan to move the cool air around the home. The compressor coil will produce cool air for 5-10 minutes after the compressor shuts down. This will save you money on your electric bill because the fan, which is far more energy efficient, will now be running instead of the compressor.

AC Repair Greenwood: Programmable ThermostatsPosted by Chad Peterman on Tuesday, April 3, 2012
The thermostat is the control center in the home for over half of our energy consumption. This component often gets overlooked as a means to save money on the utility bills, when in fact, it can be used to save a homeowner a ton of money without ever sacrificing comfort. The average household spends more than $2,200 a year on energy bills – nearly half of which goes to heating and cooling. Homeowners can save about $180 a year by properly setting their programmable thermostats and maintaining those settings.
The problem is that not everyone has a programmable thermostat, and sometimes if they do, it is not set properly. Most new programmable thermostats for your heating and air conditioning systems are very easy to program and set for your individualized schedule. Saving money could be as simple as setting your HVAC thermostat back a couple of degrees while your family sleeps. Even a few degrees can save you money!
