Improve Your Home's Energy Efficiency

article-content

If you’re looking to make your home more energy efficient, smart technology can help.

There are plenty of smart home technologies that can make your home more sustainable, reduce its carbon footprint, and lower the costs it takes to operate.

Want to improve your home’s energy efficiency? Try one (or more) of these smart options.

  • Thermostats: Smart thermostats automate your home’s temperature, customizing it based on your schedule and habits. There are several different kinds, and they can save you an average of 8% annually on your energy bills.

  • Lightbulbs: You can program smart LED lightbulbs, allowing you to set a schedule and minimize the amount of time they’re in use. You can often even turn them on and off remotely with a smartphone app.

  • Sprinklers: The exterior of your home can be upgraded with sustainability in mind, too, thanks to smart sprinkler systems. The sprinklers integrate with live weather data and can be customized for the shape of your yard, thus reducing your water consumption.

  • Plugs and Power Strips: Much like smart bulbs, these allow you to turn small appliances and other power-hogging items on and off with ease. Just open an app or ask your smart home hub to turn them off for you. You can even set schedules to ensure you’re conserving the most power possible.

Are you ready to go green and save on your bills? Reach out if you’re on the hunt for a more energy-efficient home.
