AIR CONDITIONERS---Mini Split, Energy Efficient: Like central systems, mini splits have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser; and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units. The main advantages of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning, as each of the zones, or rooms, will have its own thermostat, so you only need to condition the space when it is occupied, saving energy and money.

THERMOSTATS--Programmable: A programmable thermostat is a thermostat which is designed to adjust the temperature according to a series of programmed settings that take effect at different times of the day. The key is to establish a program that automatically reduces heating and cooling in your home when you don't need as much, delivering savings without sacrificing comfort.
THERMOSTATS--Smart and Automated: Smart thermostats are devices that can be used with home automation and are responsible for controlling a home's heating and air conditioning. They perform the same functions as a programmable thermostat, but because they are connected to the internet, allow users to adjust settings from other internet connected devices such as smartphones.
