Top 3 Ways Delta Helps Future-Proof Homes in the New Normal

By David Nakayama DET Corp Comms

Bangkok, Thailand, June 15, 2020- Although COVID-19 was a sobering disruption to our everyday lives, it was an excellent chance for us at Delta to become part of the solution and protect ourselves, loved ones and communities. Going into the “new normal”, everyone will spend a lot more time at home for work and life. So why not turn this crisis into an opportunity to advocate for Delta’s innovative solutions that make our homes a healthier and happier hub?

Let’s go over three ways how Delta’s innovative solutions can future-proof our homes and help everyone enjoy:
1. Safety, peace and freedom with renewable solar energy + energy storage
2. Healthy, green living with indoor air solutions and DC fans
3. Convenience and comfort with smart home control and EV charging

Safety, peace and freedom with renewable solar energy and storage

For homeowners, power outages can be a nightmare scenario with the potential to shut down critical healthcare systems or valuable work from home data and connectivity. Crying children and agitated family members will demand an immediate return of lighting, air conditioning or their favorite TV show. That’s why we can make securing home power for our customers a top priority.   

Fortunately, Southeast Asia has almost year-round sunny skies making it a perfect place to harvest clean and free renewable energy for homes. Delta’s all-in-one residential Hybrid E5 energy storage system collects direct current (DC) electricity generated by rooftop solar cells and converts it into alternating current (AC) with a hybrid photovoltaic (PV) inverter to power your appliances and air conditioning. Any unused DC electricity can go to the home battery to use during high demand periods, cloudy weather or night time.

In the new normal, Delta’s renewable solar energy can not only save on your electric bill, it can give you peace of mind and freedom. As long as the sun shines, your home will have electricity with a hybrid renewable energy system that even runs without the electric grid. Just imagine spending the next pandemic lockdown at an off-grid tropical island or mountain getaway with your own standalone power system.

Comfort and convenience with smart home control and EV charging

Spending lengthy periods of time on lockdown can take a toll on our mental health and wellness. We crave daily interactions using smart connected devices fast and getting out for a relaxing walk, bicycle ride or drive. As the internet of things (IoT), 5G and e-mobility become a part of everyday home life, we can look forward to smarter and greener ways to keep in touch with each other, stay fit, entertained and visit our loved ones.

You can feel safer at home with Delta’s intelligent surveillance system that uses smart cameras to give you advanced warnings and detection. Inside your home, you can conveniently time and adjust your smart ventilation fans, LED lighting and appliances with your smartphone. This control is possible with Delta’s O3 Sensor Hub 2.0 room controller, which uses multiple sensors to gather information on environment factors like room occupancy and temperature and communicate with your IoT-enabled home devices.

Having an EV gives you an emission-free transport option and extra energy storage for your home. Right now there are plenty of EV models and home EV chargers available and the Delta AC Mini Plus EV Charger is a superb choice for overnight charging. When more countries adopt bidirectional EV charging, you’ll also get to power from your EV’s battery during emergencies.

Healthy, green living with indoor air solutions and DC fans

Even before COVID-19, the toxic haze in cities like Bangkok, Jakarta and even Singapore made breathing at times a hazardous activity. During lockdowns, our crowded, airtight and air-conditioned homes become like petri dishes of air pollution from bacteria, mold, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and CO2. ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) recommends that homes receive 0.35 air changes per hour and not less than 15 cubic feet of air per minute (cfm) per person.

But you can breathe easier at home with the Delta’s Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) solution, which supplies fresh air through High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters removing 97% of PM2.5. The secret to the ERV’s efficiency is its heat-exchanger core that pre-cools air passing to the inside while returning moisture from air passing to the outside. This technology can reduce outside air temperature by up to 6°C and humidity by up to 16% to help save up to 30% of energy usage for air conditioning in tropical Thailand.

Besides pollution, another serious risk to your health and home interior is the moisture from showers, cooking and Thailand’s humid weather. You need efficient exhaust fans, especially in your bathrooms. Delta’s ENERGY STAR-qualified DC motor fans last up to 70% longer and save up to 74% more power compared with many popular AC motor models from global brands. Choosing DC brushless motor fans gives you much better efficiency, durability, lightweight, and quietness compared with AC fans.

We hope this introduction into our many solutions makes you interested to learn more about how our products and solutions can help. You can then share your knowledge about Delta’s unique innovation and vision for a better future with your friends and family.
