Protect yourself from fire

There are two approaches to becoming energy efficient: behaviour change or set-it-and-forget-it automation.  We’re creatures of habit.  Not many people walk into a room and think to dim the lights.  Not many people open or close the blinds before they leave for the day based on the anticipated weather.

Heating and cooling are the biggest users of energy in a home.  Programmable thermostats combined with automation of window blinds, lighting, and electronics leads to a reduction in energy usage automatically.  Motorized window blinds can open and close automatically based on the sun and the season.  Smart lighting can be set at 75% automatically.  An All-Off button can turn off all the lights and electronics in your home.

The purpose of energy usage information is to encourage more energy-efficient behaviors. People will try to be better than the average consumer, if they remember.

Energy-saving thermostats plus automation (so you don’t have to think constantly about conservation) will make your home energy efficient.
