Why Invest in a Smart, Safe Home System?


Our job here at Burns & McBride is to help homeowners save money by using energy as wisely as possible while making their home’s safe and comfortable.

Our Smart, Safe Home system can make any HVAC system better.

By taking advantage of the energy management features in the Smart, Safe Home system we can match your energy use to your active lifestyle by automatically turning the heat back every time you arm the system. We can do that for any customer – whether they have solid equipment or older equipment. If you have older equipment, we can install the Smart, Safe Home system now so that you can start saving today. The system can be transferred at no charge to most new systems when you are ready to upgrade the HVAC equipment

imageTake a look at these pie charts from the U.S. Department of Energy, the biggest chunk of energy consumption in the average U.S. home is devoted to heating and cooling systems at 43 percent. That figure represents a strong opportunity for us to effect change for our customers’ bills with smart thermostats.

Eleven percent of all electrical consumption is devoted to lighting. Obviously, lighting control can cut those bills. Finally, 7.4 percent of usage comes from electronics, so use of Energy Star components with low phantom power draws is another way to help clients.

Take a monthly energy bill of $450 – what would savings of 15 percent in lighting ($6.66/month), 10 percent in electronics ($2.96/month) and 16 percent in HVAC ($30.96/month) be over time?

In addition to the benefits of home security, fire and carbon monoxide protection and other interactive features – you can see dramatic energy savings
