How to save money on air conditioning- Smart air conditioning for vacation rentals, & Airbnb properties
Being an owner of a vacation rental and a frequent guest during my vacation sojourns, I always need and want the technology gadgets to provide ease and efficiency to owners as well as guests. Gadgets, which can make our stay safe, hassle free and comfortable while ensuring the owner’s stakes.
Smart Technologies for your Vacation Rentals
For me smartness inside a vacation rental clan help save the owner the much needed money while ensuring the safety and comfort for the guest. Among a plethora of available gadgets, my pick includes smart speaker, smart thermostat, video door bell, smart lock, smart lights, security cameras and may be smart sensors depending upon the location of your rental.
Of all the smart gadgets, the most energy saving gadget is smart thermostat, which is helping the owners to save on their monthly bills.
As a rough estimate, which you can always experience, the guests in a vacation rental spend less than eight hours per day in their rooms. I can also guess that there is a good chance that the air conditioning or heating is left on during their absence. Well this is waste of energy and the owners have to bear the burnt.
Smart Air conditioning for your vacation rental
The vacation rentals installed with central heating or cooling can benefit from smart thermostat to control the waste remotely. The situation becomes tricky for the vacation rental who have installed standalone air conditioners or heat pumps.
The best option in such a scenario is a smart controller which can work with any brand standalone air conditioner. Standalone ACs are the air conditioners, which you used to control via IR remote controls. No more, as you can now enjoy the option to control these standalone air conditions from anywhere.
