What If You Do Not Wish to Replace Your Current Aircon with Smart Aircon? Smart Aircon Controller is the Answer.
If your current aircon units are still functioning well and you would like to save some money, there is an alternative to changing your current aircon to Smart Aircon. You can purchase the Smart Aircon Controller which would take over the task of your remote control and turn your conventional aircon into Smart Aircon. In other words, you just have to purchase a separate Aircon Controller which will link up with your existing aircons and turn them into Smart Aircon.
Having a separated Smart Aircon Controller may be a good option because repairing a smart aircon or replacing its parts may cost more than the conventional aircon. As such, I recommend that you adopt the Smart Aircon Controller if you are on tight budget. However, please check that the Smart Aircon Controller is compatible with your current aircon units before you buy it. You should also get an aircon technician to inspect your aircon to assess if the aircon is in good shape and can last you for another few more years before you buy a Smart Aircon Controller. If the existing aircon is not in good condition, you may have to decide whether you should spend some money to overhaul the aircon with chemical cleaning or just with to replace it with Smart Aircon instead of getting a stand alone controller.
There are a number of stand alone Smart Aircon Controller in the market. Tado°, Sensibo, AirPatrol and Ambi Climate are the ones that are most mentioned.
Whether it is conventional aircon or smart aircon, servicing the aircon is still a requirement to ensure that it functions properly and generate good quality air.
