Install Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats offer you climate control, the convenience of programming away from home, and more.  We love ours, especially when we are traveling.  We can turn down the heat while we are gone and turn it up via our phones before we get home!

Use Energy Efficient Lights

Switching traditional bulbs to CFLs or LEDs ensures your lighting is energy efficient.  This goes for your indoor and outdoor lights!

Replace Old Appliances

Replace your old, inefficient appliances with new, efficient Energy Star® appliances. Old appliances tend to run inefficiently.  You don't want to ask about the side-by-side fridge we used to have.  Energy hog is an understatement.

Replace Your Showerheads

Replace the showerhead in your bathroom(s) with low-flow showerheads. These showerheads regulate water flow, assuring you a more efficient shower.

Install Light Dimmers

Installing light dimmers can cut your electricity use by 40% over time and make your lightbulbs last 20 times longer!

Automate Feeding Your Pets

Use an automated pet food and water dispensing system so you don’t have to worry about feeding your pets if you are away from home longer than you intended.

Plant Trees

Planting trees in optimal spots on your property will provide shade during the warmer months, making your system work less to cool your home down. 

Use Power Strips

Even when your appliances are turned off, they still use electricity. Smart power strips combat energy vampires.

Use A Smart Sprinkler

Use a smart sprinkler to control your sprinkler system from your smartphone. It adjusts the settings based on weather and time of day, so you don’t have to.
