A perfect bottle of Burgundy should be stored at 55°F. The ideal temperature for white wine is 45°F. Unfortunately, for people there is no perfect temperature, so many homes exist in a constant state of battle over the thermostat. At The SOHO Shop, we can install a climate control system that keeps every member of the family – and every bottle of wine – at exactly the right temperature. A programmable thermostat linked to your home automation system allows you to set up routines that work for your lifestyle. Keep the house warm and cozy on winter evenings, then cool it down a bit when it’s time to go to sleep. Or turn the system off on summer mornings when the breeze is all you need, then have the system power on as the day heats up. On larger system installations, you can even assign different temperatures to different zones, so that the living room is toasty warm while the wine cellar stays at an ideal 50°F.
A climate control system run through your residential automation interface can also help you monitor your energy usage and even help lower your power bills. You can schedule the system to remain off when no one is home, powering up just before you return so that you always arrive to a comfortable temperature. If plans change, you can access your smart home interface through an iPhone, iPad, or other computer, so you aren’t wasting energy on an empty house. In many places, our system can even integrate with the local utility company’s Smart Grid system, giving you the ability to adjust the thermostat to take advantage of fluctuating energy prices. You can set the temperature low earlier in the day, then shut off the air conditioner and still be cool in the evening when prices are highest.
Whatever your climate control needs, don’t get caught up in thermostat battles. Let The SOHO Shop find the ideal setting for you today.
