How You Can Save on Your Utilities this Winter
Now that winter is here heaters are running longer and energy bills are increasing. Here are a few ways to lower your utility bills now that the heats on.
Nest Thermostat! The Nest thermostat learns your schedule and programs itself. Auto-away automatically turns Nest down when nobody is home so your not heating an empty house. Remote access allows you to change the temperature from your smartphone or tablet.
Automate your Lights and Thermostats. Integrate your lights and thermostats with your security system. Automatically turn lights off and adjust the thermostats to save energy when arming your system to away or night modes. Use the remote access feature to adjust the temperature when your not home.
Replace incandescent light bulbs with quality LED bulbs. With the phase out of the 60 and 40 watt light bulbs this month, LED lighting is the best choice for replacement in every application. LED bulbs use less energy and last much longer. Also LED bulbs generate much less heat than incandescent bulbs reducing air conditioning cost.
