Home Automation Part 2 – Efficiency
As energy prices rise and incomes are squeezed, home automation systems will become a more enticing investment as their efficiency improves and costs decline due to innovation. In US, Average Electricity consumption per household is 11000 kWh/year. Smart Thermostats encourage users to make small steps to boost efficiency. Adjusting your home thermostat even just 1 degree can cut down energy use up to 5%. There is also the waste of water due to water tanks leaks in US. 10% of homes have leaks that waste more than 90 Gallons/day. If you prefer the home automation, Home Leak sensors near utilities like smart dishwashers can sense leaks as small as 55mL saving the consumer money sooner.
