Armstrong Air Launches Programmable Wi-Fi Thermostat
Armstrong Air has launched the Comfort Sync Programmable Communicating Wi-Fi thermostat. Designed with HVAC dealers in mind, the Comfort Sync thermostat is equipped with technologically advanced features that help to simplify installation and expedite service calls, the company says.
Quicker service calls and reduced installation time offer dealers the biggest cost savings: Four wire connections eliminate the need to pull new wire for increased efficiency on the job. Auto setup and auto commissioning further simplify the task, easily detecting communicating equipment to speed up the commissioning process. Throughout this process, individual system functions are modified on the thermostat; dealers can also adjust the dual-fuel balance points, fan-only times, delays, CFM adjustments and more settings directly at the thermostat.
The Comfort Sync displays standard and customizable alerts in plain English, helping dealers and their customers quickly identify any potential problems to keep equipment running at its peak. Finally, real-time notifications allow dealers and their customers to receive email notifications as alerts happen.
For added simplicity for both dealers and homeowners, Comfort Sync performs system upgrades automatically and wirelessly. The thermostat also features a built-in Wi-Fi receiver and equipment interface module, eliminating the need for external hardware.
Comfort Sync offers increased convenience to consumers, including remote functionality that allows them to monitor system performance and temperature settings from anywhere in the world using a laptop, smartphone tablet or other web-enabled device. Live weather data and a five-day forecast keep homeowners up to date on the latest outdoor conditions. An Energy Savings Mode—available at the thermostat or through remote access—allows users to set their thermostat on an efficient reduced-operation mode with just a touch of a button. Stylish customizable skins—in attractive patterns or even created using the homeowner’s own designs and photos—are also available for the Comfort Sync thermostat, allowing it to blend easily with home décor.
Comfort Sync was designed to offer all the benefits homeowners have been asking for without complicating the sales or installation process for the dealer.
