Home automation can help you save in spectacular ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Similar to solar energy, upgrading to a smart home is an investment up front, but will save you significant money long-term. It can help prevent break-ins, alert you to emergencies, control climate, and earn you discounted insurance rates. Additionally, those with smart homes can save significant money on their energy bills by installing a smart HVAC system through Pruitt Heating and Air. Your HVAC typically accounts for around 50 percent of your monthly energy costs. On top of that, the ability to control lighting, appliances, your thermostat, and other functions remotely give you the power to manage your spending.
