We chose the Sensi Thermostat to control the 4 zones inside our home. Even though it’s a well-designed, energy efficient home, physics (eg. stack effect) and nature (eg. wind, solar radiation as the sun makes it’s transit) create different loads in different zones, plus there are some zones we aren’t occupying a regular basis.
Besides the implied reliability of an Emerson product, my sister bought one for her home first and loves it!
The screenshot above is the from the app which allows full control over the thermostat from anywhere in the world. This makes it really easy to change the settings whether we are at home or away. It also serves as a way for me to monitor the indoor temperature and humidity.
I’ve also noticed the Sensi app keeps getting better: between improved and enhanced info on the screens to service reminders to dehumidification control or “boost” mode. It’s really fun to operate and tune in our comfort! Plus, it sends an email message when the indoor humidity is too high.
OK, so he’s an engineer by training, please don’t hold that against him.
Some say he’s a nice guy.
Bill co-owns www.TruTechTools.com, which if you haven’t guessed by now…
It’s a place to buy Tools…
Yes, it’s Tru.
TruTech also provides and networks with many educational resources for the HVACR and Building Performance trades.
Bill networks with a lot of people to support and who support the industry,
If you have a measurement-related question in HVAC, Building Performance, or Indoor Air Quality, and Bill doesn’t have an answer, he probably knows someone who does.
He fancies himself a good communicator, some agree. He’s written many articles, conducted many presentations and webinars, and now hosts two podcasts: Building HVAC Science and RESTalk, you'll find them on any major podcast app/system.
Recently he helped to design a high-performance home that he’s built and lives in. The home design embodies wisdom from his network. or as he says "it's built with ideas stolen from the future."
Follow the details on this blow or ask (nicely to join his private Facebook group: Spohns’ Personalized Performance
Next up for Bill: the Internet of Things (IoT) – say what?
