Smart Home Tech And Green Energy Practices Help The Planet And Your Wallet
Following the United States’ controversial rejection of the Paris Climate Agreement, many citizens here and elsewhere may worry about the planet’s environmental future, or feel frustrated at their own inability to make a difference to combat climate change. Yet individuals can still have a significant, positive impact on the planet’s well-being for future generations, and a good first step is employing smart home tech and green energy practices in their own homes.
According to EPA, electricity usage produces more greenhouse gases than cars in the US. Smart devices can monitor electricity consumption of individual equipment and can remotely shut down energy guzzling devices from a smartphone. Smart light bulbs apart from being more energy efficient than CFL or LED bulbs, are also customizable to change indoor ambience. Changing outdoor lighting to solar powered and choosing smart bulbs with motion sensors, cuts down energy bill.
Low-flow showerheads with LED screens indicating the water temperature and consumption and smart sprinklers connected to weather forecasts, contribute to water conservation. Smart thermostats automatically adjust the temperature and can be operated remotely by smartphones. Upgrading old home appliances like refrigerators, dish washers and dryers with higher energy star rated appliances, further reduces the energy bill.
