Can technology help you save energy?

Electricity, gas and other energy products will be the target of price increases in the coming weeks and months. Anything that can help to reduce their consumption and save money will come in handy.

In order to better prepare for the coming autumn, winter and the increase in energy prices, we have prepared several suggestions for devices that can be useful for monitoring and reducing consumption.

Smart thermostats

You can use smart thermostats to more precisely regulate the temperature level in your home or office, so that it is at an optimal level when you are there and when you are not, and even manage it remotely.

Smart lighting

In addition to using less energy, smart bulbs last longer and are easy to manage so they don’t stay on until you need them.

Smart-lightingSmart chargers

Devices like smartphones and computers that you’ve charged are still drawing power from the power grid, even when they’re fully charged. Smart chargers will detect when charging is complete and cut off the current when it is no longer needed.

Solar chargers

These devices are less efficient for charging smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices, but that’s why charging costs you nothing. Keep the solar charger close to the window at all times so that it is constantly replenished, and connect the device to charging as needed.

Smart sockets

You can use smart sockets to, for example, automatically turn off the electricity supply to devices that are no longer in use. It is also possible to connect them to an application for easier management, and with the help of certain models it is possible to monitor the level of consumption.

Electricity consumption meter

You can also get a separate device that monitors how much electricity your house, office and other rooms consume. It will enable you to monitor a series of parameters that will help you to more easily discover where, how and when you can reduce consumption.

Infrared heating panel

Panels of this type can be placed on the wall. They are ideal for smaller rooms, offices, kitchens, living rooms… They consume electricity, but are more effective because they heat objects and people equally, without raising dust.

Heat reflectors for radiators

Radiators are often attached to the walls, which is why a considerable part of the heat they emit goes into the bricks and concrete, instead of into the room that needs to be heated. The reflectors return that heat, thus reducing the loss and the total amount of energy needed to keep you warm.

Solar panels

If you can afford it and have a convenient location, installing solar panels on your house can significantly help reduce the consumption of electricity coming from the power grid.

Aerators and other accessories for faucets and showers

Faucets and shower heads can be fitted with accessories that will greatly reduce water consumption. Admittedly, water is not an energy source, but it requires energy to heat up and is a valuable natural resource.
