Summer Energy Savings
Looking to maximize efficiency, be environmentally conscious, and minimize overall operational costs in your home?
Summer can seem like the most difficult time of the year to live greener with the kids at home leaving lights on, using screens, running the washer at all hours; with air conditioning pumping 24 hours a day; and with a pool pump and heater running. Everything is conspiring to ensure your best energy resolutions are sabotaged.
We are here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way! With some simple changes you can manage your energy consumption and optimize savings even during the summer months.
The simple act of dimming a standard halogen can help save on lighting energy. But have you considered vacancy sensors? Walk into a room – the lights go on, walk out – they go off. Couple automated dimming with vacancy sensors and time clocks and your energy savings will soar to a new level.
