Perdido Key’s Krystal Key Beach Resort Adds Energy-Saving Technology to Amenity Package

PERDIDO KEY, FLA. (April 11, 2019) — Krystal Key Beach Resort is a new condominium development pre-selling Gulf-front luxury residences located in Perdido Key, Fla.  The Alabama-based developers are pleased to announce energy-saving additions to its amenity package that include motion detection thermostat systems and solar windows. These newly-designed systems are manufactured on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Rick A. Phillips, co-owner of Southern Advantage Real Estate and manager of Krystal Holdings LLC, said iPatchie Motion Detection Commercial Appliance Thermostats, manufactured by Coastal Green Air of Gulf Shores, Ala., are a great choice for investment properties including vacation condominiums where the property may remain unoccupied for extended periods.

 Rick Phillips“One of the cost-saving features of the iPatchie thermostat is that it turns off the HVAC system if a door or window remains open for more than two minutes,” Phillips said.  “The average annual savings of utility costs range from 33 to 47 percent per year. For spaces larger than 1,200 square feet, such as Krystal Key Beach Resort units, the savings should be even greater.”  (Photo: Rick A. Phillips)
