Smart home products not only make your life safer and easier but they can also help you save energy and money. The average home spends almost $2,000 on energy costs each year and could cut a third of its energy bill by switching to energy efficient appliances, equipment, and lighting.
How we Use Energy in Our Homes
Control Your Lights With Smart Lighting
Do you ever forget to turn the lights off when you leaving a room in a hurry? Thanks to smart home technology this won’t be a problem anymore.
While 34% of your energy bill goes to appliances and lighting, 25% of the utility bill actually is just spent on lights. A smart bulb is an internet-capable LED light bulb that allows lighting to be customized, scheduled and controlled remotely. Investing in smart bulbs can help lower your monthly bills and save energy by using automatic timers and motion detectors. You will have access to all the lights in your home with just a click of an app making saving money and energy easier than ever.
While people may be turned off by the initial cost of the bulbs compared to traditional light bulbs, smart bulbs last 10x longer and use 75% less energy. Smart bulbs are proven to save you money over time and are well worth the initial investment. Additionally, they are also very versatile and have many interesting customization options, like having them turn on automatically as your alarm goes off. Automatic timers, monition sensors, light dimmers, and energy-efficient light bulbs are all money and energy saving features you want to include in your smart home technology.
Blasting your air conditioning in the summer is an easy way to stay cool but will break your bank. Luckily, the installation of a smart thermostat can avoid this problem.
Smart thermostats are Wi-Fi connected devices that automatically adjust heating and cooling temperatures throughout your home. This smart home technology includes numerous features allowing you to program temperatures you prefer. You have the ability to develop an ideal automated schedule by providing energy usage data that you can easily manage and enable control of your home’s temperature through your smartphone.
For example, you have the ability to turn the heat down during the night, but program the thermostat to kick back on 20 minutes before you wake up, allowing for a warm house to get your morning started. You also have the ability to adjust your thermostat remotely when you are away from your home with the help of a smart app.
All in all, smart thermostats save the most energy by minimizing temperature swings by cutting on or of off closer to the desired temperature than a manual thermostat.
