Visiting everybody and their grandmother over the holidays? It's time to finally embrace a smart thermostat. It'll learn your schedule to make adjustments when you're not around, so you can save more energy while you're on the road.
Plus, if you're entertaining your relatives and can feel the temperature rising, your smart thermostat will know it too, so you can make sure the only thing that’s roasting is the turkey.
The holidays are about family, of course, but they can also be about shopping for gifts (and prepping for big Boxing Day sales)! If you're planning to upgrade your appliances or electronics, remember to look for ENERGY STAR®-certified products. An ENERGY STAR® TV, for instance, uses 27 per cent less energy than one that's not certified.
This time of year is about relaxing and spending time with loved ones. Getting everyone together in one room can help you save energy all over the house, if you remember to turn off lights and unplug electronics you're not using.
After all, the holidays really are about relaxing using as little energy as possible.
