Update Your Home’s Technology When You Remodel

If you’re ready for a home remodeling project, it might be time to update your home’s technology too.

Homeowners have had technology in their homes for decades. Remember phone jacks? They let us move our phones from one room to another. No longer was our (crank-handled) phone hardwired. It won’t be long before smart outlets replace the familiar 3-prong outlets we have now.

Technology has changed over time – it always will. Tech is the tool that make our lives easier, letting us turn on lights before we arrive home or open garage doors at the push of a button. No longer the realm of science fiction, voice commands can make life easier.

The future has arrived and it is now. Home technology is a must-have and Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis can make it a reality for you.

Why Update Your Home’s Technology When You Remodel?

A 2021 survey conducted by Houzz reveals that a larger share of homeowners purchased smart technology products, such as security cameras, light fixtures and media systems.

There are several reasons why updating your home’s technology when you’re doing a home remodel project is a smart move. It can:

  • add value to the home when you sell it;
  • add functionality to the home;
  • make it more energy efficient and money-saving;
  • make your home more secure, protecting your family and belongings.

Just remember that some updates are best done while your home is undergoing renovations. If you want to hang your television on the wall, why not have one of our professionals at Roeser Home Remodeling do it while remodeling your master bedroom or living room?

No ugly, exposed wiring. No hassle for you. No problem for us! Win-win-win.

How Roeser Home Remodeling Can Help

Let’s look at some specific ideas for updating your home’s technology.

Kitchens and bathrooms

Roeser Home Remodeling built its business on kitchen and bathroom remodeling. With our expertise on the job, you’ll enjoy the convenience of hands-free faucets, automatic soap dispensers, water control systems and lighting that switches on automatically as you enter or gesture.

Smart Lighting

No more “clap on, clap off.” That’s old-fashioned technology. Today, there’s smart lighting.

Smart lighting adds convenience and style to your home, putting the control in your hands. You won’t have to worry about coming home to a dark house again because you’ll be able to turn on your lights from your smart phone.

If  your lights are set up to turn on as you approach, then you won’t have to fumble for light switches as you enter a room struggling with grocery bags or laundry baskets.

Changing out traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs for smart ones is also a great way to save money on your energy bill. Because these smart bulbs are more efficient, you’ll see a lower bill each month.

Appliances

Large household appliances like ovens are moving in the smart direction, as well. Smart ovens can be turned on with an app before you get home. Concerned the stove was left on when everyone left for the day? If that’s the case, a smart stove connected to an app will turn it off.

Smart appliances will also include diagnostic technology to help troubleshoot and solve problems, rather than the homeowner having to call a repairman.

If you’re interested in updating smart appliances, our designers will work with you and our remodeling professionals to get the right appliance for your design.

USB-C Outlets

USB-C wall outlets are an excellent way to integrate smart home technology into your renovation. USB outlets provide electrical USB ports and eliminate the need for AC adapters. Thanks to modern technology, now you have a way to plug in your appliances AND charge your devices, all with the same outlet.

You can get these outlets with A, B and C ports and both single and duplex outlets. These outlets work like any other smart outlet by allowing you to control them from a smartphone app and schedule automation for times when your house is unoccupied.
