Home Automation Technology: Save On Energy

Home automation technology is becoming as synonymous with saving on energy as it is with convenience. Incorporating smart home technology into a new or existing structure makes it easier to save on energy and the carbon footprint a home or business creates. There are countless uncomplicated ways in which you can automate and increase the efficiency of your home simultaneously. Many of these simple smart home solutions are very affordable, so you won't break the bank in the process. Plus, the money you'll save on your energy bills will help offset the costs to automate your home

How to Save Energy and Money? 

  • Control41750.jpgAutomated Water Heater - According to the US Department of Energy, an average home spends 14% of its energy costs on heating water. Save on energy by automating your hot water heater so you can control when it is turned on from your smartphone or tablet and reduce your water heater energy and expenses.
  • Energy Efficient Lighting - Studies show that dimming a light by just 10% can save 10% of electricity and double the life of the bulb. Save on energy by automatically set lights to 90%, saving you money anytime a light is turned on. Dim and control your home lighting by schedule, motion detection, door openings, sunrise, sunset alarm activation, and more. Lighting is an essential component of just about any smart home system.
  • Integrated Thermostat for your HVAC - According to the US Department of Energy, approximately 56% of an average home's energy usage is for its heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Use an integrated thermostat and automatically schedule your heating and air conditioning settings based on the day of the week and time of day. Save on energy by setting temperatures when you are not home and programming your smart thermostat to warm/cool the home for when you return home. You can also easily change thermostat settings based upon events, time, or sensor readings. 
  • Window Coverings - According to the US Department of Energy, window coverings can be one of the simplest and most effective methods of saving energy and reducing heat transfer 25-33%.  Save on energy by automating your shades to minimize direct sun exposure through specific windows at certain times throughout the day. This feature of many smart home systems is also appreciated by homeowners who realize they forgot to lower their blinds only after they have already left home.
  • Reducing Water Consumption - According to wateruseitwisely.com, up to 70% of your household water use is outdoors. This is why it is so important to ensure you are watering efficiently. Chances are that you can maintain your lawn at least as well as you do now with just 50% of the water you currently use for lawn irrigation purposes. You can expect to maintain a healthy landscape while consuming up to 50% less water than "traditional" time-based controllers. Integrate your irrigation system to adjust smart home irrigation settings four times a year with the seasons.
