Programmable Climate Control - Why you need it
Automatically control the temperature, humidity and air quality in all rooms of your home. Enjoy greater comfort, save on energy costs by cutting heating or cooling in areas that are unoccupied and breathe healthier, fresher air. The savings make economic sense for you and make your home environmentally friendly at the same time. Let Magen Home Automation analyze your needs, design and install your HVAC controls.
Climate Control How it works
Set temperatures low in unoccupied areas and keep occupied areas set to normal comfort levels. When people leave the area, the temperature automatically drops; when they enter a previously unoccupied area, the temperature there automatically rises. With a zoning system in the home, even greater savings can be achieved. Each zone is programmed according to its exposure (eastern, western, northern, southern). Even if your existing heating system isn’t zoned, Magen can zone it for you. Ventilation is factored into the preprogrammed controls to allow for regular replacement of stale air with fresh air from the outside. With controllable ventilation, fresh air conditions are monitored for temperature and humidity. When conditions are within an acceptable range, an outside air intake damper lets fresh air in. Humidity controls activate humidifiers or dehumidifiers to provide a constant comfortable level. Balancing between inside and outside humidity prevents condensation on windows. Once set, all adjustments are automatic! The controls know what you want and do it all by themselves.
Air in new Homes
A new home is no guarantee against unhealthy air. If you have new carpets, draperies or furniture, a constant airflow is necessary. "Off-gases from new carpets will often dissipate over a 3 to 12 month period. The best precaution against irritation is a proper balance of airflow. Keeping the humidity regulated is also effective”. (From The Air You Breathe "Sick Building Syndrome" and Building-Related Illness by Toni Meixner, 1995). Automatic control of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and humidity in the home is the healthy solution.
Climate Control Energy Savings
Preset controls for the various scenarios (At home, Nights, Weekend & holidays, Away from home, etc.) to enjoy ideal environmental conditions. Factor in external climatic conditions. Studies show that energy savings of 25% to 30% are achieved by installing these automatic controls.
Integrate your HVAC with motorized drape controls, for even greater energy economy. By shutting out the sun in summer or letting more in winter, you cut energy use and costs to a minimum.
Phone your cottage climate control
With home automation the environment in your home is controlled automatically or you can make adjustments by remote. Before you leave to go to your cottage for the weekend, call ahead. Just by pressing a few numbers on your phone, you can start the heating or cooling process. You will arrive to enjoy a comfortable temperature and won’t need to suffer the stuffy atmosphere of a closed cottage. With certain systems, this may not even involve a long distance call.
Our controls can be mounted flush with the wall, leaving your house with a neat, clean look.
