  • Decreasing Your Power Bill

    How Can I Bring My Tech-Unfriendly Home into the 21st Century?Running to much electricity in the family room? Wish you could cut that bill in half? Well maybe not half, but here are some tips for cutting back on electricity in your home: Have the Home Mechanics and Cleveland Contractors help install the latest technology like the Nest into your home to help cut back on those pricy bills.

    Decrease Your Power Bill

    We've previously suggested several ways to cut your power bill, but let's focus on the ways you can better-manage your technology's needs. Basically, your goal is to turn off your gadgets when they're drawing power they do not need. If you're using a power strip, consider switching to something like the Belkin Conserve Smart AV. It'll run you about $29—which is about what you'd pay for a high-quality power strip in the first place—and will automatically reduce power when your electronics are in standby mode. It also has one special outlet that you can use with the TV in your home theater system. When you turn your TV on, the power strip will provide power to every outlet. When you turn your TV off, it will turn off everything else as well. This way you don't have to worry about accidentally leaving anything else on and can cut noticeably down your power usage. Alternatively, you can pick up a remote-controlled conserving power strip for easy control and power savings without the special home theater features. Belkin actually has a variety of really good options to choose from.
