Energy Saving Through Smart Home Systems

Who would have thought that upgrading your home’s electrical system and appliances or devices could save you money? Well, probably many people who know about smart technology. If you are interested in bringing your home well into the 21st century while saving on energy bills, then we have an article for you. In this brief article brought to you by Mr. Electric of Katy & Houston, we will go over just a few "smart" devices that offer incredible convenience and save you money at the same time! If you ever need a skillful electrician to take care of any electrical installations, then give Mr. Electric a call. Our live representatives are always ready to help.

Smart House Energy Monitors

What better way to start than with a smart energy monitor? An energy monitor is not just a glorified energy bill. It does a lot more than just tell you how much energy is being used. A smart energy monitor can track individualized usage as well. For instance, how much energy are the televisions using? Which appliances or devices are consuming the most energy? Are there any spikes in energy drainage? These are all questions that can be answered with a smart house energy monitor. These devices can even monitor how much energy your solar panels are producing.

Smart Thermostats

If you have installed the energy monitor, then you might quickly find out that the heating and cooling system accounts for up about half of your household energy consumption. The good news is that this means a single device can end up making a huge difference in your energy bills. That device is a smart thermostat.

A smart thermostat gives you the power to control your home or business’ temperature remotely. Forgot to turn up the thermostat before leaving for work, or home? Open up your smartphone and do it! You can even take advantage of features that detect when you leave the house and automatically adjust the temperature for energy savings. Some models will even change temperature at nonpeak hours to take advantage of lower energy price rates.

Smart Lights

It is so easy to forget to turn off the lights. To make matters worse, roughly a quarter of your energy bill goes toward paying for lighting. With smart lights, you can check whether you turned the lights off – and you can turn them off if you did forget! Paired with LED bulbs, smart lights can end up saving you lots of money in the long-term.

It’s not always about turning off the lights though. Here’s a pro tip: Next time you head out on vacation, use your smartphone to turn on your smart lights at certain times of the night. Maybe turn on the kitchen lights around dinnertime and the bedroom lights a couple of hours later. This can give would-be trespassers the impression that someone is home.
