Benefits of a Smart Thermostat
The first thing to do is to install a smart thermostat. If you’re manually adjusting your thermostat throughout the day chances are you’re losing money.
Our busy schedules can sometimes cause us to forget the small things. Changing the thermostat is often one of those things. Imagine taking a weeklong vacation to a far-off destination only to realize you forgot to adjust the thermostat before leaving. Unfortunately, you’re cooling an empty house for an entire week in the middle of a scorching summer.
Now imagine taking the same vacation but this time a professional electrician has installed a smart thermostat. Now your thermostat’s controls are conveniently located on your smartphone. Not only will you be able to set thermostat levels to automatically change, you can change it from the comfort of your couch!

Ceiling fans may be next on your to-do list. Statistics show that the use of fans can lower your thermostat by 4-7%. And those savings from the lower thermostat, can help you save up to 30% on air conditioning costs. Don’t forget the benefits of outdoor patio fans. They are a great way to extend the use of your outdoor entertaining space.
Smart Lighting Enhancements
New light fixtures are a great addition providing energy efficiency and convenience. Smart lighting technology can be controlled audibly directly from your phone or smart home device. The settings can be configured to customize your home’s lighting throughout the day. Scheduling specific lights to be on when you’re away from home or sleeping at night. Smart lighting should be installed by a professional residential electrician.
Audit Your Energy
Lastly, ask your electrician to give your home an energy audit.
