When you are relocating to a new home, it’s a great time to work towards reducing your energy usage. The cost of traditional energy is always on the rise and of course, we want to be as “green” as humanly possible! By minimizing the loss of energy, and adding some smart elements to our energy-saving arsenal, we can drive down the cost of your energy bill each month and keep your usage in check!
You can start by heading up into the attic and looking at your insulation. Are you getting adequate coverage? It could be time to add another layer of insulation and increase your R value. This will allow you to achieve and maintain a more regulated and comfortable temperature all year long.
You will also want to look at the lighting in your home. Adding “Top down, bottom up” shades will allow you to use more natural light during the day and reduce the amount of energy required to achieve the same level of illumination. You can also easily install some smart lightbulbs. With a smart home system, you can install simple screw-in (LED) light bulbs that can be controlled from your smart phone.
Control the temperature of your home from anywhere and keep your oil & gas usage to a minimum. You can set your system to turn on and off when you head to work, and arrive home. Adding heat sensors to your home, which work with your thermostat, you can make sure your entire home is getting the same heating and cooling as your main floor.
Our partners at American Defense Systems can provide professional installation of these smart home solutions as well as provide training of your panel and the Alarm.com app. Now you can control your home, and monitor your energy use from a single mobile application!
Adding solar panels can help to mitigate a large portion of your energy use on sunny days. While technology is always getting more efficient, a typical array can currently power your entire home throughout the day. While saving energy is always important, generating energy using the power of the sun is the cleanest way to power your home.
