A smart A/C unit is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to your old window air conditioner. If you're looking for one of the smartest A/C units out there, check out the new July. Our beautifully designed models have 2/3 less emissions than the average window A/C, plus they’re all WiFi-enabled.
Keep reading for five reasons why you should replace your old unit with a smart A/C:
Cool your home, away from home
Typical window air conditioners tend to stay on much longer than necessary. A smart A/C will remedy this problem. You can schedule when to have it on and off, so that by the time you get home, your space is all cooled down. Once your living room or bedroom is the right temperature, the smart A/C will shut itself off so it doesn’t use up excess energy.
Ditch the remote
People don’t really use the remote that comes with their window A/C. They either misplace it or the batteries run down and then - you know how it goes. If you haven’t already lost your remote by now, you can ditch it for good with a smart A/C. That’s because the unit is WiFi-enabled.
For July’s WiFi-connected models, a digital app (available on both the Apple Store and Google Play) lets you control your A/C from anywhere. The July app allows you to control the A/C’s temperature without getting up from your couch or your bed, and you can schedule when to have it on throughout the day. (There's a physical remote, too.)
Connect to your smart home
Not only are smart air conditioners WiFi-enabled. Many of them, like our July models, are also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. By connecting the A/C to your smart home devices, the unit can be voice-activated. Without unlocking your phone, you can change the temperature just by saying aloud whether you want it hotter or colder.
Being environmentally friendly shouldn’t have to hurt your wallet. Since a smart A/C can regulate itself, it knows to never waste excess energy – which means you’ll get a lower electricity bill at the end of the month.
Keep your pets comfy
A smart A/C will keep your dog or cat cooled off even when you’re not home. With pets, you should schedule your unit to run a little longer than if you wanted to cool a space down just for yourself. You can make the schedule either on your phone or on your connected smart home devices, like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Of course, you won't need to leave the A/C on full blast for your pet (unless you've got several of them).
