1. Using charging stations for all of your electronic devices is an excellent way to save energy. You can set yours to turn on and off at specific times, so nothing is ever receiving power at a time when it doesn’t need it. When your devices are 100% charged, the station will go off until there is a need for it to go on again. This will cut down on the amount of energy you use at home by roughly 8%.
2. Having a smart thermostat installed in your home is something more and more real estate agents are recommending. It is more than just the average programmable thermostat; it is a tool that you can use for becoming as energy efficient as possible. The thermostat will learn when the heat or air conditioner is on in your house and when it gets turned off. It will use this information to turn itself off and on so that you don’t even need to be home to do it.
3. Smart power strips are also an energy efficient product. They are very convenient if you have appliances and other electronics that are difficult to reach the cords for. This type of power strip will only produce energy when it can detect something plugged into it.
These are just a few of the fix and flip ideas that any real estate agent would recommend. You will save energy in the meantime and make your home more appealing to buyers if you choose to sell it.
