With the world pretty much running on Alexa, Siri, and Google Home, don’t you think your home should, too? Smart devices aren’t just convenient, but can also save you money.
- Smart Thermostats
- Controlling the temperature from your phone or smart home device isn’t just easy, but if you are away from your home you have the ability to change the temperature from miles away! On vacation? Turn the heat down!
- Smart Plugs
- Smart plugs can be used for a variety of appliances and eliminate “energy vampires” which are devices that pull energy when they are plugged in even when they aren’t being used. These phantom energy suckers can account for as much as 20% of your monthly electricity bill. By plugging your devices into smart plugs, you can control them on your phone/smart home to lower your bill.
- Smart Lightbulbs
- Putting your lights on a timer or setting them to only come on when the sun isn’t out is very energy-efficient and also saves a lot of money every year!
As smart devices become more and more popular, their prices will decrease becoming more affordable for any household. This would be a good investment for your home!
Replace your roof
There are two main ways a roof replacement can save you money. When you opt to replace your roof, you have the decision to buy an energy-efficient roof or a “cool roof” which is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Choosing this the next time your roof needs a replacement can save you a lot of money on your heating/cooling bills.
Another way a new roof can save you money is that at a lot of homeowner’s insurance companies, they can offer you discounts on your policy!
Wrap your water heater
This may sound a bit funny to a new homeowner but wrapping your hot water heater can save you about 7%–16% in water heating costs!
You can find these wraps for your water heater for as low as $20 so it’s a simple and cheap home upgrade that saves you money.
look into getting on a budget plan
Most of us New Englander’s use National Grid or Eversource for their electric supplier. Did you know that both of them offer budget plans? It’s simple and easy to do, just head over to your energy supplier’s website for more information.
Budget plans just take your average annual energy usage and divide it into monthly payments. In some cases, you will save money (by using more energy and only paying for what you averaged last year).
