PHILADELPHIA, June 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer vacation can be stressful, but Joseph Giannone Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, a family-owned home service company with an A+ rating by the BBB, reminds Philadelphia homeowners that smart technology is one way to reduce the anxiety of summer travel.
"No one wants to worry about their utility bill or returning to costly damage from a leak while they're on vacation with their family," said Joseph Giannone, owner of Joseph Giannone Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. "Investing in some easily installed smart technology upgrades around your home means you can monitor your air conditioning, plumbing and other operations from your phone or laptop and get timely alerts if something goes awry."
Here are some of Giannone's recommendations for summer vacation security and peace of mind:
- HVAC smart maintenance and monitoring: New technology offers 24/7 real-time monitoring of your home's HVAC system. Small issues can be detected before they become major problems, reducing the need for expensive repairs and extending the life of your system. With remote access, you'll get real-time alerts if sensors detect an urgent issue. This monitoring system can also detect condensate leaks from your air conditioner.
- Smart thermostat: With a smart thermostat, you can monitor the temperature of your home remotely by smartphone app, tablet or computer. You can program settings before you leave and adjust if there are unseasonable temperatures, or if you have a pet at home. You can even turn the air conditioning up a few minutes before you arrive home.
- Smart lights: Don't advertise that your home is empty for an extended period. Deter thieves and vandals by installing smart bulbs that can be programmed to turn on every evening and turn off again at night, just like when you're at home.
- Leak detection: Hidden leaks are dangerous – they can do significant damage before you even know you have a problem. Smart leak sensors detect unusual water collection as soon as it starts and alert you by smartphone, email or a built-in siren. Some feature a temperature alert so you can avoid frozen pipes during winter, and some sophisticated all-home leak detection systems include automatic shutoff switches.
"These options might not guarantee a great vacation, but they can give you more time and energy to focus on your experience," Giannone said. "Just a few simple upgrades can give you security and peace of mind not just during the summer but throughout the year."
