Smart Home Tech Can Assist In Keeping Electricity Usage And Bills Low This Summer
With summer comes additional power usage and high utility bills. The U.S. Energy Information Administration predicts a rise in electricity costs this summer. Here are some ways a smart home can help you save on power.
An energy monitor like Sense can give you an idea of what is using power in your house. Sense installs directly into your electrical panel and reads the current flowing into your house.
Sense will detect and monitor other devices in the home, giving you the complete split on usage and cost across each device or appliance. Using a smart thermostat can help you save money in the long run. With its help, you can switch on the energy-friendly mode and manage them even when you are not home.
Electric vampires are devices that tend to suck up power. For instance, coffee pots, set-top boxes, chargers, TVs, etc. fall in this category. You can use a smart power strip so that they use lesser energy and shut off when not in use. With smart blinds, you can let the sunshine in to light up the place naturally. They can be automated to close off towards the evening. For darker days, smart lighting is an option. These integrate with Sense and allow you to manage them remotely. With these tips, you can work towards reducing your energy consumption (and bills!) this summer.
