Home Tech Trends on the Rise

Technology use is on the rise in every arena, and smart home tech is no different. From smart fridges that tell you when you’re out of milk, to complex lighting kits you can access from your phone at work, there’s no limit to home technology. And the best part? They can save you cash.

“Technology is changing how people live, and it’s driving the trends we’re seeing this year,” says Tommy Webber, owner of T. Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric. “Homeowners expect improvements that will save them money by lowering their utility bills and requiring less maintenance and fewer repairs over time, and the industry is responding to that demand with a whole range of time- and energy-saving products and services.”

The following are among the latest top trending home solutions, according to T.Webber:

Ductless heating and cooling. In addition to being an ideal option for older homes that were built without modern ductwork, ductless mini-split systems are quiet, convenient and energy efficient. Ductless mini-split systems also allow flexibility and customization so you can heat or cool specific areas of the home like attics, basements and sunrooms.

Tankless water heaters. Unlike traditional water heaters, which use energy around the clock to keep a home’s water supply heated, tankless water heaters don’t start working until you turn on the faucet. A tankless heater can use up to 50 percent less energy than a traditional model, meaning lower utility bills. Not only that, but they take up less space in your home.

Constant water pressure systems. Conventional well pumps can keep water pressure unpredictable, especially if you’re using more than one water source at a time. A constant pressure system provides stronger, more consistent water pressure all the time. Constant pressure systems can also reduce the mechanical stress on your well pump and provide self-diagnostics when things go wrong. The systems are small, operate quietly and can be installed with your existing well pump.

Smart lighting. A smart lighting system is one of the easiest ways to integrate connected technology into your home. Energy efficient smart LED bulbs connect to your home’s Wi-Fi system. They have multiple dimmer and color options, are programmable, and can be controlled by a phone app or voice assistant. Adding smart switches gives you even more options, including integration with a home theater system and motion sensors.

“Efficiency and convenience are the big ideas that are changing the home service industry,” Webber says. “Homeowners are looking for solutions that are less disruptive, last longer, and make their lives simpler.”
