As a homeowner, you’ve got a lot on your to do list. At Acer, we are in the business of making your Nashville landscape look great while at the same time making your life easier. With reliability and efficiency in mind, and with a minimum of fuss, we offer the latest technology in irrigation systems with Hunter “smart” irrigation controls.
Why A Smart Irrigation Control ?
Automated irrigation systems offer convenience while protecting your landscape investment. A well-maintained system keeps your lawn and landscape beautiful and healthy, while minimizing water waste.
July is “Smart Irrigation Month” and it’s a good time to learn the benefits of efficient watering practices. We want to be sure that you get the most out of your irrigation system, while keeping utility bills low and at the same time protecting the environment.
Why A Smart Sprinkler System?
The new generation of “smart” irrigation systems monitor weather, soil conditions, evaporation and plant water use and automatically adjust your watering schedule.
The secret to smart systems is the controller. Smart controllers use weather and/or site data to determine when and how long to water. Then, sprinklers apply just enough water at just the right time in each zone of your yard. No more watering while it’s raining!
What Makes Smart Controllers so Smart?
Smart controllers save you water, money and time giving your family more time to do the things you want to do. How do they do that?
Save water. Smart systems automatically suspend watering during rain, freezing or high wind conditions. Careful scheduling minimizes evaporation and encourages water to soak in, reducing the total amount of water needed. Preventing over-watering actually keeps plants healthier by encouraging stronger roots and discouraging weeds, disease and fungus growth.
Save money. Smart systems can reduce your annual water bill by as much as 30 percent by preventing water waste. Plus, many local water providers offer rebates for purchasing specific smart controllers.
Save time. Once an irrigation installer has programmed your site data into the smart system, the controller adjusts the watering schedule based upon weather conditions and soil moisture without manual intervention.
Add convenience. Smart controllers adapt to seasonal weather changes without requiring reprogramming. And their “set and forget” technology is perfect for complying with any local watering restrictions, as well as for frequent travelers and vacation or second homes.
Clock Timers Vs. Smart Timers
Did you know that you can save almost 8,800 gallons of water a year by simply replacing a standard clock timer with a smart irrigation controller?
Imagine all the water that we could save nation wide if all homeowners would make the switch to this smart technology.
