When you are aware of your energy consumption, you will be able to take steps toward saving lots of money through smart home systems. With more smart technology being incorporated into homes, your efforts can ensure you conserve energy and even protect the environment. There are many devices that can help you save money through energy conservation and Neighborhood Electric can help you install these smart devices.
The Smart Thermostats
Your home heating and cooling system will normally account for almost half of your home energy usage. With a smart thermostat, you will be able to conserve energy and contribute to the National energy savings. The smart thermostat will adjust temperatures at non-peak hours hence you wouldnt use as much as energy as in the peak hours. With features like auto-way in some smart thermostats, the device will lower the household temperature of the heating device when you are leaving the home. Schedule a local electrician at Neighborhood Electric if you want to save energy through a smart thermostat.
The Smart Lighting
Roughly 25% of your home energy is used by smart lighting systems. It can be easy to leave the lights on when you dont need them. The addition of automatic timers and motion sensors to your smart lighting can help shut off the light and reduce energy wastage. You can also install the appropriate app that will send alerts so that you can shut off the lights remotely from anywhere.
Smart appliances, including the smart oven, rely on the use of features like carbon fiber heating which produces faster cooking times and eliminate the need for pre-heating. The smart refrigerator is another way of cutting down your energy usage, they do come with alerts that automatically gives off sounds when refrigerator doors are opened for too long. Smart refrigerators also come with different temperature zones to keep foods chilled without consuming much energy.
Conserving energy through smart appliances will reduce the pressure on the National power grid. Please contact Neighborhood Electric if you want smart appliances installed in your home.
