My partner and I are attempting to live more on less cash. Times have changed as has the spending power of a dollar. Our friends snicker at our little attempts to save cash. At dinner, she and I always, always eat the special or a “value item.” We genuinely will shop the hell out of a grocery store with coupon book in hand. So, it’s no surprise we have now zeroed in on slashing the utility bill at home. From the beginning, we have put a premium on temperature comfort within our dwelling. We applied some of our everyday savings to keeping the climate control equipment right where I wanted it. The beach house we live in will be cool enough or moderate enough as long as we are employed. Yet, we knew there were little details which would help decrease energy use. None of what I will mention is ground breaking or revolutionary in thought. They are simply additional ideas, which when combined, can end up saving you upwards of 15 percent on the utility bill. I started with the smart climate control unit. This piece of technology is both effective plus efficient. I couldn’t understand how swiftly it gained our patterns plus adjusted the temperature accordingly. We live in the South, so cooling is a priority. The smart climate control equipment also integrates my automatic blinds. During the heat of the afternoon, the climate control equipment dials up the temp to just over 70 degrees. It also reads the direct sunlight signals from the auto shades. The smart climate control equipment then closes blinds as the sun dictates. I suppose it seems trivial but, the annual savings to myself and my partner will be close to five hundred dollars. That will purcahse a bunch of dinner specials.
