With the multitude of new products on the market with smart-home technology, there’s no reason not to take advantage of them. We’ve put together a list of three types of energy-efficient appliances that can help to lower the utility bills for your home in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Water

When you think about the water use throughout your home, it can really stack up. Between the dishwasher, washing machine, showers, refrigerators, drinking water, and lawn sprinkler, it can be easy to consume a lot of water. You can easily reduce your monthly water use and save money by using appliances that are designed for that purpose. For example, you can install a faucet or shower head that controls water flow.

Electricity

All appliances that plug into the wall are electricity vampires, sucking energy even when not in use. You can save energy by unplugging appliances when not in use, either by turning off each one individually or by turning off a power strip. It’s also important to be aware of your energy use. When running the dishwasher, make sure it’s completely full. Whenever possible, wash the laundry with cold water, and hang your clothes to dry instead of using the dryer. To make sure that you’re buying energy-efficient appliances, look for the Energy Star rating.

Heating and Cooling

Maintaining your HVAC system with preventive care measures, such as regularly changing filters and scheduling checkups, is one of the easiest ways to keep your system running smoothly. An energy-efficient system will help you to save you money. Smart thermostats are especially trendy now; installing one can help you to manage your HVAC energy use and reduce your monthly energy bill. What’s to lose? Save energy, go green, and save money.
