Summers usually means a bad heat spell and huge electricity bills. If you are trying to cut down on your electricity costs, it would be a nice idea to look for energy saving products for your home. Energy saving devices not only help you save you big bucks on electricity bills, but they also aren’t as harmful to the environment as the traditional home appliances.
In this article, we have identified 7 energy saving gadgets that you can use without compromising on their functionality:
Why heat or air-condition your house when you’re not in it?
Smart thermostats allow you to control your home heating and water boiler really easily when you’re at home, as well as remotely, via an app
These gadgets take energy efficiency to a new level, preventing you from ever forgetting to adjust the temperature in your home. Smart thermostats include brands like Nest, Hive, and Ecobee, and have the ability to learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly.
Ambi Climate is a slick device, which lets you sync the air conditioning of your home with your smartphone. This lets you gain complete access to control your air conditioner and its functions from wherever you are via your Android/iOS device. Always stay on top of things; view AC run time, average temperature and humidity, your favorite modes and your unique comfort profile.
Sengled LED bulbs are really high-tech appliances disguised as LED light bulbs. They offer LED bulbs with stereo systems installed, LED bulbs with security cameras, an LED light with a built-in Wi-Fi repeater, and many more. Sengled bulbs can be controlled from an app on your smartphone which also measures your energy savings from these appliances. The combined systems in the Sengled line serve to simplify your smart home experience and realize energy savings.
As the name suggests, portable air conditioners are a cooling system that can be ported around from one room to another. Portable air conditioners come with an exhaust hose, which can be easily fixed in any window. The exhaust hose vents the hot air outside the room.
If you want to cut down on electricity costs without compromising on the cooling solution that you choose this summer, then go for Quilo’s 3 in 1 Portable Air Conditioner, which not only cools but also humidifies dry, winter air. Quilo’s range of portable air conditioners are sleek, powerful and available in three cooling powers for different-sized spaces.
A lot of the energy used in the home goes towards heating water for the shower. Just one minute of showering requires more energy than is needed for all electronic devices for a whole day
So, savings can be made if we monitor – and then reduce – the amount of water used when we shower. This is where a smart shower meter, like the Amphiro, comes in. Once you have it set up, it displays water and energy consumption during and after showering, making you more aware of your consumption and giving you the information, you need to start saving energy.
Electric lawn mowers (and other electric lawn tools) are better for the environment, more convenient to use, and, if you have solar panels, significantly cheaper to run than traditional gas-powered tools. Explore brands like Greenworks, Earthwise or Sun Joe and others to find your best pick.
These smart sensors turn the lights on in a room when you enter and keep them switched on while the room is occupied. The second you leave the room, they turn off the lights. These are available in passive infrared mode and dual-technology sensing models, depending upon major and minor ranges of motion. Lutron sensors are great when your hands are full and you can’t easily reach the light switch.
So, start using these energy efficient products to save money and protect the environment.
