Last week I wrote about solar panels and how beneficial they can be to the environment and property owner. Solar panels are hot but if they are not in your budget or you don't qualify for programs, not to worry there are other things out there you can do to try.
Window- with today's technologies there are windows that have sophisticated glazing systems that have low UV factors, they automatically respond to heat and light conditions. Consider this, windows can account for 15% of heating and cooling loss and up 25% of your energy bill.
Thermostat- new thermostats offer real-time weather, humidity control and allows you to monitor energy use and some even allow user to change settings via a mobile app.
Dimmer switch- some brands are now manufacturing self dimmer switches. The switch has a self calibration feature which will solve any issues of flickering light levels. It also aims to extend the life of the light and create energy savings.
These are just a few, If you are interested in more I am sure if you do your homework you will have many more to choose from.
