Energy efficiency reduces the effects of pollution and is also seen as a solution to the problem of minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. Energy efficiency isn’t just easier on the environment; it also saves you money!
Here are some things that can be used to make our home more environment friendly and energy efficient.
Smart Power Strips: Cut down standby power with Smart Strips, it allows you to connect multiple appliances to a single electrical outlet. Though with traditional power strips, devices plugged in often consume electricity even when you aren’t using them. This results in larger electrical bills and poor home energy efficiency. Smart power strips solve this problem by cutting power to connected items in standby mode.
LED Lighting: If you’re still using regular fixtures and bulbs, switching to LED lighting could greatly reduce your monthly energy bills. Aside from increasing your energy-efficiency and containing none of the toxic chemicals that most other light bulbs do, LED bulbs have a much longer lifespan and can be used for up to 100,000 hours before they need to be replaced.
Smart Thermostats: The thermostats work by adjusting the temperature in your house based on whether or not you’re home, and which rooms are in use. Smart thermostats help users take anywhere from 10 to 15 percent off their heating and cooling bills.
Energy Efficient Plumbing: Energy efficient toilets provide another excellent way to reduce your energy consumption, this time by saving water. If your toilet was made earlier than 1994, replacing it with a high-efficiency model can save you more than 4,000 gallons of water per year.
Energy Saving Apps: Energy Saving Apps like Homeselfe ask a few quick questions about your energy habits, and then generate a comprehensive report that provides ideas on how to improve your efficiency.
