There’s an easy way to save money and the environment: turn down the lights and the heat when you’re not at home.
Yeah, that can be bother, and nearly impossible for you to remember and household servants are liable to ask for time off. Go with an automated machine.
Go with a multi-functional touch panel.
Plenty of options are available, like the Elan Home System’s Multi-Purpose Home Control or Control4′s Wireless LCD keypad. With the proper installation of either one, you can monitor and control your family’s energy usage. You can turn off all the lights in your home at once, and you can set your thermostat’s temperature for particular times. Elan’s installs into the wall so you always know where it is, and Control4′s is wireless so you can make adjustments anywhere in your home.
With a control panel, it’s easy to cut back on your energy bill and your carbon footprint. That’s something worth getting excited about.
