Smart technology has the potential to make homes more energy efficient.
Smart thermostats help run your heating and hot water more efficiently than traditional systems. Simply being able to turn down your heating while you’re out saves money. But some, like the Google Nest learning thermostat , can do even more. They programme themselves, intelligently adjusting for conditions like the weather and your own schedule, optimising your home’s energy efficiency.
Smart lighting and smart plugs can be switched off remotely, by sensor or be programmed, helping you use your lighting and appliances more efficiently. For example, lights that turn themselves off when you leave a room.
Plus, all smart bulbs are low-energy LED, which is more efficient that traditional bulbs too.
