A great way to reduce your energy costs is to install green energy solutions in your home. In this article, you will discover four green tech devices you can install in your home to save energy and reduce your monthly energy bills.
Become energy self-sufficient with solar panels.
1. Install Solar Panels
An excellent way to use green energy to power your home is by installing solar panels. While the initial costs of installation can be quite high, the amount of money you will save by harnessing energy from the sun through the panels on your roof will offset these costs in the long run. Not only are you able to become energy self-sufficient but you are also being environmentally friendly with your energy consumption.
Wind generators create electricity for your home.
2. Install a Wind Generator
Alternatively, to solar panels, you could also install a wind generator. Wind generators can be bought off-the-shelf at large hardware stores and vary in cost depending on size and set up but are generally cheaper than solar panels. Wind generators allow you to offset your energy costs by 10 to 15 percent and are an excellent green option to generate electricity for your home.
While there are many smart tech devices for your home that you can use to save money, by far one of the best is the smart power strip. Smart power strips provide an excellent solution to a major energy draining source; plugged in but unused electronic devices.
Smart power strips can gauge a device’s energy demand and turn off the power to the device once it is fully charged or not in use, which entirely prevents devices from wasting energy unnecessarily.
4. Install an Energy Monitor
Finally, another great way to reduce your energy costs is by installing an energy monitor on the main power line to your house. Energy monitors show you every minute how much energy you are using, which acts as a great reminder to switch off devices you are not using and helps you to identify the devices that drain the most energy.
