While most homeowners figure that home automation can make their life more convenient or more safe, many homeowners don’t consider the drastic amount of money that can be saved by your home automation system. Many times, over a period of time, homeowners can help to offset the cost of installing or upgrading their home automation system by using modern technology to reduce expenses and save on energy costs.
Saving Energy with WiFi Thermostats
Advances in home automation have made things like network connected WiFi thermostats commonplace. These thermostats are oftentimes adjustable by using your smart phone or tablet – even remotely! This allows you to keep your home at a reasonable temperature even when you’re not home and even if you forget to lower or raise the thermostat temperature on your way out the door. By reducing your home temperatures even a few degrees – and having programmable remote thermostat control which can assist with this – you can cut back on your energy consumption considerably over a period of time.
Saving Energy with Automated Home Lighting Systems
Home automation can do much more than just control your thermostat – it can help to control your home lighting systems too! You can program you lighting systems to utilizing certain lights at certain times of the day for home security concerns. In addition to that, you can enable or disable lighting systems even when you’re away which can help reduce your energy consumption and lower your electricity bills.
