Beat the Heat: Smart Energy Usage this Summer

Although it is scorching hot, it is still important to remember that the best energy usage is smart energy usage! Here are a few tips from Mister Sparky on how to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to staying cool in the summertime.

Install Smart Thermostats!

Smart thermostats track your energy usage, so you can determine when you’re using the most energy for your home’s cooling or heating. These metrics will help you save money by changing your habits.

Benefits of smart thermostats include:

  • Energy savings
  • Energy usage metrics
  • Thermostat control from anywhere
  • Simple and smart scheduling

Smart Sprinkler Controllers Are Also a Good Idea!

Smart sprinkler systems are an awesome addition to any home. Many devices help you control the water you spend. For example, if it starts raining, you can shut off your sprinklers so that you save on water costs—even when you’re not home.
