The long days of summer are just that – long! The sun is out late each day and rises early in the morning, leaving our homes bathed in sunlight for the majority of the day. There’s no need to have porch or landscaping lighting on when the sun is shining brightly.
You can save on energy costs by programming your smart outdoor lighting to sync with an astronomical clock, turning off at sunrise and turning on at sunset. Your lighting will adapt automatically, and there’s no need to reconsider when to turn lights on or off. Talk about simplifying your life!
Programmable smart thermostats can help Texas homeowners save on energy costs while also improving your family’s comfort year-round. To save on energy, your thermostats are programmed to raise the home’s temperature when no one is at home, then lower the temperature before bedtime to encourage better sleep.
If you’re working at home this summer, you can set your downstairs home office to be cooler while the bedrooms upstairs are warmer. Over time, the smart thermostat will learn your preferences and adapt to serve your needs.
Solar heat gain occurs when those hot, heavy, Texas-sized sunbeams enter your home through the windows. Drawing the shades can help reduce heat gain, but this task can take a considerable amount of time, especially if you have several windows or floors to consider.
With motorized window treatments, you can automatically manage the amount of sun that enters your home with pre-programmed scenes, the tap of a button on a smart device, or a voice command. Reducing the amount of heat that enters your home will also reduce how often your HVAC system turns on to combat the heat throughout the day. Motorized window treatments also improve the look and ambiance of your smart home.
