You can increase your energy efficiency with home technology that optimizes energy usage without affecting your lifestyle. LED lighting solutions use less power and emit less heat than traditional lightbulbs and fixtures. They also last longer than traditional lightbulbs, so you will not have to replace them as often, reducing your upkeep costs and the amount of waste you produce. You can also integrate vacancy sensors with your lightsin certain areas of the home so that lights in those spaces only turn on when movement is detected.A smart lighting system allows you to manage lights while you’re away from home, so you can ensure you never leave lights on while at work or away on vacation.
Integrate your smart lighting with motorized shades for even more energy savings. Set timers or integrate photosensors that open your shades when the sun rises and closes them when the sun sets. When there is adequate sunlight, your artificial lighting will dim or stay off completely, reducing your energy usage.
Temperature sensors, smart thermostats, and motorized shades can reduce your HVAC system's strain by utilizing sunlight to heat a room andtriggering shades to closefor better insulation. Your home loses around 30% of its heat through its windows and doors. This means that your HVAC system has to work harder to keep your home warm in the winter, leading to more energy usage. Motorized shades provide much needed insulation to keep the heat in and reduce the burden on your HVAC system. Open your shadesto let sunlight in on cold days so it is easier to heat your home.When a room gets too warm, temperature sensors will trigger your shades to close so your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard.
You can also schedule your thermostat to go into energy-saving mode when you are at work and remotely turn it on againfifteen minutes before you get home, allowing you to enjoy the comforts of a regulated climate without wasting energy. Best of all, this technology can be managed from the same app that you use to control all your home’s smart technology and can be adjusted whether you are at home or away.
