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 keeping an eye on 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 Sensors

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!

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.

William and Cameron were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, respectful and put on plastic booties over their shoes when they came into the house. Our pets were comfortable with them and that says a lot. We will definitely ask for them again in the future if our AC has any issues.
