As we all know, it seems everything is connected to the internet these days, from thermostats, to lighting, to washers, dryers…even the family fridge.

But there’s one more area that’s being more and more connected all the time – and THIS ONE can really save you money. And I’m talking about internet-connected smart watering systems for your yard.

The Whole House Fan

I wanted to offer up a blast from the past….as in, a last of really cool air – on a hot summer night. Not from an air conditioner – but rather, from one of the greatest cooling systems ever invented – yet one that’s nearly forgotten! And I’m talking about the whole house fan.

When I was a kid, I lived for many years in a house built in the late 40’s, maybe early 50’s. No central air – it hadn’t been invented yet. Plus – no duct work…so even when the day came that central air was available – well, not for this house. Nope.

Too Much Tech?

We’re going to wrap up with a few thoughts about a relatively new development in air conditioning…and just about everything else in your house. And that is – if you install one of today’s AC units – a newer model – chances are you won’t ever have to touch it, once it’s installed.

Because – they all have remotes!
