Saving Money with Home Automation

How Can Home Automation Save You Money?
According to the American Lighting Association, household lighting accounts for 12-15% of our household utility bill. Furthermore, studies suggest that a whopping 50% of the electricity used for lighting in the U.S. is wasted! This is due to inefficient lighting sources or lights that are on in unoccupied rooms.*
By setting up a home-automated system, you can save money by conserving energy. For example, we all know we save money by programming our thermostats according to our schedule. Our home automation systems go one step further by not only adjusting to your schedule changes automatically, but controlling both your heating, air conditioning, and lighting simultaneously.
You can get even more savings on your electrical bill by controlling the wattage used by the light bulbs you currently have. These dimming devices use less electricity, extend bulb life, and add a wonderful aesthetic to your home.

How Much Can You Save with a Home Automated system?
Dimmers, timers and occupancy sensors manage your home while you are both in and out of
your house. With these controls managing a typical 3-bedroom home, over 850 pounds of CO2 emissions could be eliminated each year. That would be like not driving your car for a month. And that’s just the beginning. Imagine the positive impact you could have on the environment by adding other Symbrant energy saving features!
