5 Ways Smart Sensors Can Keep More Money In Your Wallet

As homeowners, we all know the feeling of dread when that monthly utility bill arrives. Between rising energy costs and our ever-growing reliance on electronics, keeping our homes comfortable and powered can feel like an expensive tightrope walk. But what if there was a way to live smart, stay cozy, and save money on your bills at the same time?

Enter the burgeoning world of smart home technology. These little devices are like watchful, energy-saving elves, constantly monitoring your home’s systems and optimizing their performance. Let’s dive into some key players that can help you slash your utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint, while also making your life easier to manage:

Smart Thermostats

Man adjusting thermostat

These intelligent pieces of wall art learn your routines and preferences, automatically adjusting the temperature when you’re away or asleep. Think about all those hours you spend at work while your HVAC system dutifully pumps out heat or air conditioning to an empty house. Smart temperature sensors put a stop to that, potentially saving you up to 15% on your heating and cooling costs! 

Smart Garage Door Openers

Did you remember to close the garage door when you left for work? Smart garage door openers come equipped with sensors that detect if the door is left ajar and send you an alert, so you can close it remotely and prevent precious warm or cool air from escaping.

Some devices also have built-in cameras, letting you keep an eye on your parked car or deliveries from anywhere. They can automatically control the lights in the garage, saving money on electricity and keeping your things safe.

Smart Plugs and Outlets

These tiny titans are the ultimate weapon against phantom power, the sneaky energy drain caused by electronics in standby mode. Plug lamps, TVs, game consoles, or even entire appliances into smart outlets, and you can control them remotely or set schedules to automatically turn them off when not in use. 

Smart Home Systems Monitoring Tools

These sleek devices track your home’s heating, cooling, and hot water usage in real-time, giving you detailed insights into your energy usage. Armed with this knowledge, you can identify inefficiencies, adjust your habits, and target specific areas for improvement. Think of it as an X-ray for your home’s comfort system, revealing hidden energy leaks you can plug and trends you can spot before they become major expenses.

Preventative Smart Sensors

Smart sensors, like SmartAC.com, help detect and prevent costly HVAC and plumbing problems before they become major, expensive issues, ensuring worry-free performance for your heating, air conditioning, and water heater systems.

These sensors use real-time data to predict breakdowns before they happen and alert technicians when service is needed. You might even be able to save on insurance. According to SmartAC.com, some homes can save $50-$100 or more annually with leak and freeze detection and prevention.

Remember, small changes can lead to big savings. A little investment in smart sensors can turn your home into a haven of comfort and savings, all while doing your part for the planet. Now go forth, empower yourself with smart home technology, and watch those utility bills shrink!

My technician Jorge (George) Gutierrez was out today performing the a/c system check. He did a fabulous job and identified significant issues and concerns for the longevity of my current 12 year old system. He was very knowledgeable and helpful on what my options are and in the end I’ll be getting a new system instead of worrying about the current system failing in our extremely hot temperatures. He was very respectful of my home and my dog was ecstatic to meet him.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
