Smart Thermostats have proven to be effective in reducing energy costs by as much as 10%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. With many options to choose from, we will look at the Daikin Smart Thermostat for its efficiency, ease of use, and helpful features.
Daikin’s History with HVAC
Daikin has more than 90 years of operation and has sold millions of systems in over a hundred countries worldwide. Daikin is known for excellence in personal service, quality and innovation in HVAC industry technology.
Quick Setup Control App
The Daikin Comfort Control App allows for easy installation of wireless interface adapter on the indoor unit of the system. It detects fault conditions remotely so users can respond quickly to problems.
It is available for iOS and Android and can be downloaded in the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
Set a Schedule
Using the app on a Wi-Fi enabled device, users can set a schedule for each room of the home for individualized comfort.
Adjusting modes is easy by selecting the mode of operation and temperature adjustment. The control app allows users to control individual units or groups of units, with just one device.
Setting a schedule allows temperatures to drop when no one is in the residence, without compromising comfort. The smart thermostat’s schedule allows the home temperature to return to the preferred settings before residents return home.
With motion detection technology, smart thermostats can learn user preferences and increase or drop the temperature accordingly.
If residents are away from home and forget to update the thermostat or control app settings, motion detectors work with the thermostat to adjust the temperature to maintain energy efficiency while the home is vacant.
The Daikin One+ is compatible with air conditioners, heat pumps, gas furnaces, air handlers, and other HVAC equipment making it one of the most widely compatible smart thermostats on the market.
Setting back the temperature by 8-10 degrees for the time residents are out of the home can reduce energy bills by 10 to 15%. The percentage of savings is also dependent on the climate.
Milder climates reflect the greatest savings with smart thermostat usage. However, more harsh climates can also save with smart thermostat technology.
