Weather the Seattle Chilly Seasons with Control4 Home Automation
Keep Your Home Comfortable and Efficient with Smart Climate Control
The great Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in America and is blessed with mild weather, but it has its colder seasons, too. When the summer sun fades, and late fall turns into winter, grayer and wetter weather prevails.
In the colder season, the damp Seattle weather may seem chillier than it actually is. But with smart climate management with a Control4 home automation system, your home can stay comfortable until the warm rays of the spring sun return – and after that too. Keep reading to learn more.
Smart Climate Control
Smart thermostats like Nest are popular and common. But some homes in Seattle use humidifiers to make the environment more comfortable from the dryness of the heating system. Most consumer smart thermostats don’t deal with that, but a Control home automation system can.
In fact, Control4 can control a Nest thermostat or a Control4 one, and the system can also trigger your humidifier when a sensor detects that humidity has dropped below your comfort level. With a Control4 automation system, you can do more than manage the temperature in a room or zone; you can precisely control the environment across your entire house.
Control4 gives you one interface and one app to manage all your smart home functions, not three. If you decide to take a break in the winter and escape for a few days of sun elsewhere, your Control4 system can keep your temperature and humidity at green and wallet-friendly settings while you’re gone.
Another way to control the indoor climate has nothing to do with heating and cooling systems – but it can work in tandem with them. Smart motorized shades and window treatments can do two key things - manage the sunlight entering your home and also serve as additional insulators for your windows during the colder seasons.
Large windows can be a significant source of heat loss. With the right shading fabrics like honeycomb styles, your window shades can serve as part of your home’s insulation. With smart automation, it’s easy to raise and lower one window shade or many at the same time. For colder rooms, you can keep the shades drawn at colder times to retain heat. When you want to let the light in, open them up.
With Control4 scene control, you can set up your shades on a set schedule or even to open and close based on the amount of sunlight streaming in. In concert with your smart thermostats, you can intelligently use your shades and HVAC system to keep you comfortable in the winter and throughout the year.
Stay comfortable all year round with a Control4 home automation system.
