With Rising Energy Cost Are We Going Go Back To Kerosene Lamps and Wood Stoves?
Do you ever pay attention to how much you're spending on heating, cooling and electricity cost? Most of us live under a regulated monopoly, and we simply pay our bills because there is not much we can do about it.
And with the simple process of supply and demand, where we have a shrinking supply and a higher demand, over the past 10 years prices have increased on average by 4.5% each year.
If we rewind 10 to 15 years ago the prices of electricity doubled.
If we fast forward 10 to 15 years what do you think is going to happen?
But are you still going to pay it?
Unless you're going to join our Amish friends and start using candles, you're going to pay it, right?
Regulated monopolies kind of got us under their control and we can't do much about it. How does that make you feel?
Well until I did something about it, it made me feel helpless.
Now I use automation with integration to give me the greatest impact on energy savings.
Combine the Alarm.com Smart Thermostat, which went through a rigorous, independent test required by the EPA for its ENERGY STAR certification, gives you a 9 to 16 percent savings on the energy you’d normally use to heat your home in the winter. And be even more energy efficient in the summer, saving between 15 and 23 percent of the energy it normally takes to cool your house.
Our smart thermostat uses GEO based and Responsive savings.
With GEO based savings, you can set a GEO fence (1 or more miles radius) around your house. When you go out of the fence or enter the fence your smart thermostat will adjust accordingly, up or down.
With Responsive savings, it works with our smart security control pad, and connected sensors. If a window is left open, your smart thermostat will adjust accordingly to pause, and you will be sent a notification that the children's bedroom window has been left open.
Now that you're getting a good picture of how your smart thermostat can save you on your out of pocket energy cost. Let's discuss how it can provide you greater life safety by integrating with your IQ Smoke Detector.
As part of the larger smart security system, the IQ smoke detector integrates with your smart thermostat to automatically turn off your HVAC fan when fire or smoke is detected, preventing hazardous fumes from circulating around the house and giving you more time to get to a place of safety.
Would you like to save energy and money without having to be uncomfortable as well as have greater life safety with the IQ Smoke integration?
