With new gadgets and devices on the market, there are more ways than ever to save money on your energy bills. While there are plenty of products out there to help you go solar, there are also other alternatives to saving energy. Here are five home gadgets you need to make your home not only more energy-efficient, but also more comfortable.
Don’t let unused energy escape with a smart power strip.
Power strips can be powerful devices and are one of the biggest culprits for energy loss. You can lose energy even if you turn off the device connected to your power strip. But smart power strips automatically turn off electricity when the devices plugged into it are idle.
Bonus: Get a smart power strip at no cost when you do your Mass Save home energy assessment with Energy Monster.
Control the temperature away from home with a smart thermostat.
Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a warm house without having to leave the heat on all day? You can do so with smart thermostats. By being programmable, smart thermostats allow you to set the temperature to change at a certain time of day. You can save up to $180 per year on heating and cooling.
Save energy with smart windows.
Step aside, curtains and blinds. Your windows can go from clear to opaque in a matter of seconds, helping control the temperature inside a room. For example, smart windows can block the summer sun and help your air conditioner from overworking while keeping energy bills low.
Go tankless with your water heater.
Tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water on demand, as opposed to waiting for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water. They can be 24%-34% more energy-efficient and will typically last longer than the conventional storage tank.
Turn your outlet into a nightlight or a phone charger.
Ever get up in the middle of the night only to bump into the nightstand? Are all your outlets being used when you need a place to charge your phone or tablet? SnapPower solves both of these inconveniences efficiently. What’s even better is that you don’t need any wires or batteries to install this handy gadget.
