Home energy monitors are tools that create awareness and help you manage what you can’t see, your electricity usage.
Most people who get their electricity bill see two things: how much electricity they used that month and how much it cost them.
The EnergyCloud home electricity monitor provides you with real-time energy consumption information, and detailed appliance level breakdowns. Independent research has shown that in order to reduce electricity consumption, accurate real-time data must be available to homeowners. Since 2010, 12 other studies have indicated that homeowners can save up to 18% on their energy by simply having detailed, real-time, information about their electricity usage.
A fundamental reason for knowing how much electricity your major appliances are using is not to prevent you from using them, but to help you understand that changing when and how you use them can save money. The goal is to prevent you from wasting your electricity and wasting your money. For the same reason, we don’t just leave our car in idle in our driveways. As you learn more about your electricity usage habits, you will be able to make more informed decisions that will impact your bills positively.
