The Heat Is On

Winter is the season for excess when it comes to energy usage.

The temptation to raise the thermostat all the way up on cold days is sometimes too much for homeowners, and they pay for it in their energy bill.

We’ve compiled a few tips on how to keep track of your heat usage without compromising your comfort.

Nest Learning Thermostat: $249.99 from Apple
Do you want control over your home at your fingertips? Then you’ll love the Nest Thermostat.

It’s currently in its 2nd generation of delivering energy monitoring excellence for anyone with an iPhone, Macbook, or iPad. Remotely keep track of energy usage from wherever you are. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind and conservative living.

Install A Tankless Water Heater
This option first trended in Europe and slowly made its way over to The States. Rather than storing water in a large and outdated heating tank, this tankless water system heats up water as it runs through the pipes. However, they can be more expensive to install, though long term savings will make it worth your while.

Use An Amprobe Chart Recorder
While a bit more old-fashioned, these recorders have been useful in the industry environment for ages. Keep track of all data usage on one easy chart. Monitor multiple systems on the same chart, and set goals for yourself, such as an energy milestone, etc.

Purchase An Energy Monitor
If you don’t own an iPhone, or have an aversion to Apple products, perhaps an electricity monitor from TED might interest you instead. Offered in Residential and Commercial styles, they measure energy usage in dollars, which gives you a real-time number and more peace of mind. You can set a budget, create an alert for excessive use, and project your monthly bill.
