Why a Homeowner Should Monitor Their Electricity Usage

Some benefits of monitoring your electricity usage:

Electricity bills are a significant part of any household’s monthly expenses, but people make little to no effort to manage them. This is because it is thought of as an entity that just can’t be managed. However, this isn’t true.

You can monitor your electricity usage and manage it. In fact, over a longer period it will be beneficial for you.

Consumption Awareness

When you install an Eyedro energy monitor in your home, you will become more aware of how you are consuming electricity.

Keep an eye on your data wherever you are with Eyedro’s full featured MyEyedro cloud software.

In this way, you can keep track of your daily consumption to better understand your expenses.  You’ll also get an understanding of which of your appliances and devices consume the most energy.

Energy-Efficient Alternatives

Once you have your daily numbers, you can begin to gauge how much usage is necessary. Based on that, you can plan and keep the usage of certain pieces of equipment to a minimum.  For example, you may want to run large energy consumers like dryers and ovens during off-peak hours if you are charged time-of-use energy rates.

You’ll also know which devices are consuming way more electricity than they should. This can help you switch to better options that are more energy efficient. As a result, you’ll save a significant amount of money.

Eco-friendly Habits

When you minimize your electricity consumption and switch to energy-saving options, you automatically become more mindful of your environment. You can reduce your carbon footprint and create an eco-friendly energy consumption pattern for your home.

Conclusion

Energy consumption monitors are seen as an additional expense in any household. People think about how much money will be spent buying and maintaining one and thus choose not to purchase it.  Good news! Once your Eyedro is installed it is virtually maintenance free.

However, what they don’t realize is how much money can be saved with an energy monitor. It significantly brings down your monthly electricity bill.

Besides helping you save money, energy monitors bring a significant change to your mindset. You learn to save energy, understand the effect your equipment has on the environment, and curb its usage. In the end, these things make you follow a more mindful and healthier lifestyle.
