If you’re like most people, you get a monthly electrical bill that tells you how much electricity you used and the amount of money that you owe. If you’re like most people, you’d like to reduce the amount of energy that you use not only to save money but also to help conserve energy. At HB Energy, we’re concerned about the environment as well and would love to help all of our customers get the most out of their home’s electrical system. That’s why we offer SmartMeter installation in Southern Vermont. Here is some information about SmartMeters and how they can benefit your home.
What is a SmartMeter?
Right now, your home has a basic electrical meter that has a spinning disc inside of it. This tells you how many kilowatt-hours you’re currently using—but that’s about it. A SmartMeter, as its name implies, gives you more information about the electrical usage for your home. There are also gas SmartMeter models that can give you detailed information about your home’s gas usage.
SmartMeters offer more information because they connect wirelessly to the internet using a secure connection. It will upload data about your energy usage and email you a report on the hourly, daily and weekly electrical usage of your home. It can also email you an alert if your energy usage goes above a certain point.
What Are the Benefits of Using a SmartMeter for Your Southern Vermont Home?
When it comes to energy usage, most homeowners do their best to reduce their consumption. But without more information, making those efforts successful is very difficult. Without knowing which hours of the day you use the most energy will make it difficult to know where to focus those efforts.
With the SmartMeter, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly which appliances are using the most energy. That way, you can target your conservation efforts on their use. With a tool like the SmartMeter, you’re in charge of your home’ s energy use and can more effectively manage your energy use.
