As millions of Americans are making resolutions to make this year better than the last, we are inviting you to improve your home in the new year. There are many ways we can help, but here are a few things to consider when making your home better, be healthier and possibly save more money in the new year.
- Lighting the way – Lighting is one of the most important systems in your home and when they are connected to smart home technology it can make your routines go smoother. Automatically turn on lights in the evening when the sun sets (or rises) or turn your lights to night mode for safely walking around at night.
- Better Feeling Home – Swapping out standard incandescent light bulbs, which waste much of their energy as heat, not light, with LED bulbs which can help reduce the need for frequent replacement and energy used. Adding additional outdoor lighting can help eliminate dark areas and make your home feel safer.
- Save You Money –Try unplugging appliances like lamps, televisions or game consoles when they aren’t in use. It may not be on, but if it’s plugged in, it’s still drawing power.
