Smart home products come in many different shapes and sizes, but what areas of your home are really worth improving? It seems like these days every aspect of your home can be updated with smart technology, but it’s important to recognize the aspects of home improvement that will make the biggest difference to you. We, at Emilygrene Corp., have done the research for you and found three best areas to focus on updating to smart technology. Updating these sections of your home will bring a sense of ease and enjoyment to your everyday routine, as well as provide some relief to your wallet!
These are the three best sections of your home to upgrade to smart technology:
The heating and cooling of your home can be one of the heaviest weights on your wallet. Energy bills tend to skyrocket during extreme weather months leaving the homeowner with an astronomical energy bill. We have found that updating your HVAC equipment with smart tech can greatly reduce your bill and the shock that comes with it. One simple improvement we can help you make is a switch to a Nest Thermostat. This smart thermostat allows you to control the temperature of your home from anywhere through their app. With this new equipment you will never have to worry about accidentally leaving the AC running all day. You can have full control of your HVAC equipment from wherever you are!
Another big energy drainer is lighting. Replacing old fluorescent light bulbs with energy efficient LED lighting can make a huge difference to your monthly energy bill. This is an easy, low maintenance change that will make your day brighter and your bill lower. We suggest switching to Lutron lighting control. With improved lighting and even updated light switches, Lutron lighting control takes everything into consideration. With this updated tech you can control the lighting throughout your home from one easy to use app. No more running around the house turning off lights, you can do it from your couch now!
Home theater systems have so many components and at the end of the day all you really see is a stream of wires powering all of this equipment. Upgrading your home theater can simplify the look and experience of viewing your favorite program. One component we favor is the upgrade to Sonos Play audio equipment. With one simple cord, you can enjoy the best in audio technology! They offer multiple styles and sizes to allow you to pick the one that will work best for your home theater! We love these speakers so much that we donated some to new home owners at the Habitat for Humanity “Women Build” event!
