30 Jul Save Money! Make Your Home a Smart Home
US residents spend over a thousand dollars each year on their power bills. If you live in Alabama, chances are the number is even higher. With our hot summers and all-around unpredictable weather, energy costs can add up fast. But what if your home was working to save your money instead of spending it?
Smart homes sure can. Check out these energy-saving systems and devices that can lower your power bill, without you having to break a sweat.
With a smart thermostat, you can control the temperature in your home based on your living patterns. For example, a thermostat can recognize when you leave your house for work or vacation and automatically adjust your home’s settings to an energy-saving temperature. On the flip side, so you don’t return home to a sauna, you can turn on the air from an app on your phone. Smart thermostats offered by Chorus SmartSecure can save you up to 15% on your energy bill each year.
Control lighting throughout your home with your smart home system, app, or voice command device. By setting custom schedules, you can save money by turning off lights in unoccupied rooms or when you’re away. With Chorus’s geofencing feature, your home can recognize your location and have the lights turn off when you leave and turn back on to welcome you home. Depending on your daily energy consumption, these devices could completely pay for themselves in less than two years!
For lower energy consumption, monitor and manage your energy use with smart plugs. By remotely controlling outlets – and, therefore, what’s plugged into them – you can reduce energy usage for devices that are not in use. On average, these smart plugs can save you 3-5% on your power bill – even a little adds up!
Each of these devices plays its own part in saving you energy and money. By working together, they could reduce the numbers on your next power bill! Although the percentage will differ based on the number of devices used and average home energy consumption – there is no downside to saving money!
