Automation system helps to trim utility bills

I live in an area with just about year-round weather extremes. The temperature fluctuates from the negatives up into the high nineties. We deal with snow, hail, wind, rain, humidity and frequent storms. Because we rely on heating and cooling nearly non-stop, energy bills are a huge concern. I’m always looking for ways to trim costs.I started researching smart thermostats and was amazed by the innovative features. As I considered the different models of smart thermostats, I came across automation systems. I really liked the idea of combining the management of all different systems into a single hub. I can now use my phone, laptop or tablet to access the thermostat, lights, door locks and every smart system or appliance that makes up the household. I’m able to do a better job with management, save time and significantly reduce my monthly expenses. I no longer leave the lights on and the furnace running while the house is empty. I’ve programmed the blinds to close at a specific time to prevent the sun from heating the house up when the air conditioner is running. I have ceiling fans programmed to help distribute heat in the winter and reverse direction to contribute to cooling in the summer. While the home automation system was a significant investment, it has proven very worthwhile. It has definitely paid for itself in lower utility bills and fewer repairs. I have incorporated everything from the washer and dryer to the sound system into the home automation hub. I am relieved that it is wonderfully user friendly and easy to update.
