Preparing to go on vacation requires significant planning. But it seems that no matter how much you prepare, you always forget to turn a light off, adjust the sprinkler system, or turn up the air conditioning a few degrees. Here are four products that can deliver peace of mind and lower utility bills the next time you leave Sneads Ferry, North Carolina.
With heating and cooling units accounting for up to 50 percent of your utility bill, keeping temperatures at energy-friendly levels is important. Avoid heating or cooling an empty home by installing a smart thermostat. While you can adjust the temperature remotely, internet-connected thermostats can also adjust heating and cooling based on the local weather forecast. As a result, they’ll help lower your utility bill.
Smart Plugs and Outlets
If you want to turn individual devices on and off while you’re on vacation, smart plugs and outlets make good investments. Not only can you use them to make your home appear occupied. You can also use them to stop power flow to any plugged-in device, reducing your electricity bill.
Smart sprinklers keep an eye on the weather forecast and ensure your yard is watered only when necessary. As a result, they help you save money on your monthly water bill.
Smart Flood Sensors
If a water pipe were to fail in your home while you’re away, you probably wouldn’t know until you returned home. But smart flood sensors will detect water, sound an alarm, and send an alert to your smartphone to help prevent a small leak from causing expensive damage.
