The Basics of an HVAC Smart Chip

An HVAC Smart Chip is a small computerized component you can have installed within your heating and cooling system that keeps your fan running just a little longer after your system kicks off. Technically, for every 10 minutes that your fan was running, the chip ensures the fan runs an additional 2 minutes. That suffices to push out any remaining heated or cooled air.

How Is an HVAC Smart Chip Efficient?

The long and short of it is this: with your fan pushing out and using the remaining air that would have gone to waste, your system doesn’t need to start back up again anytime soon. With this system in place, and with the HVAC Smart Chip installed,  your HVAC unit could be up to 30% more efficient than without the chip.
