All about residential digital controls: should you buy one?

Digital control panels are about as popular as they’ve ever been and while so much of the focus here and elsewhere is on your industrial grade panels – digital control panels are now also becoming increasingly popular in the residential sector, too. More, now than ever – they’ve helped people better manage their lift stations and septic systems – and in the process saving a lot of money on not only costly problems and maintenance issues that could arise but also allowing them to get the most out of their system.

If you’re unsure if a digital control panel is for you, we’ll paint a picture for you of what an ideal situation could be and what the benefits are to you as a home owner. Let’s jump right in!

Breaking it down

In our view, you should probably consider purchasing a digital control panel if you fall into one of the following three situations:

If you have trouble maintaining your system and would benefit by having a notification system that can help keep you on the straight and narrow. Remembering when to get your system pumped, or even the ability to recognize when something might be off is something that’s  relatively foreign to home owners. As such – having a system that can bring these issues to your attention and give you the warnings  and updates you need can be a big help – AND save you a lot of money.

In addition, you may find yourself in a residential situation where the septic tank is being used frequently. This would probably qualify as an apartment or condo space – or even if you’re someone with a big family or have lots of traffic in your home. Septic systems are like anything else – the more use they get, the more wear and tear occurs. Also, the more the system is used, the more likely it becomes that something will happen that shouldn’t. With a digital control panel you’ll be able to flag any potential issues or at least be able to stay on top your maintenance schedule more effectively – making sure that things like pumps and tank cleanings happen when necessary.

And last, if you’re just a person who wants to think about this stuff as little as possible, then you’re absolutely a prime candidate. Digital control panels monitor your system so you don’t have to. When something needs to be fixed, it tells you. This way, what was a small problem doesn’t morph into a much larger and costly one. At the end of the day – most home owners simply want their system to work with as little hassle as possible. Digital control panels make that a reality.

So, if you’re someone on the fence as to whether or not a digital control panel is for you, hopefully today’s blog made the decision a little easier.  If you’d like to learn more about panels in general or are interested in what they can do for your home give us a call today and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free consultation.
