Reduce the energy your home needs to suit your lifestyle. Why do you need the air conditioning running when you’re not home? Just have it turn on when you are 15 minutes or less from arriving home. The same applies in the winter, no need for heating the home to the max if it is not being used, keep it cooler when you’re away and have it heat up just before you arrive home.
Leaving lights on all day is a bad habit that happens to so many homes and usually goes unnoticed. Having control or setting up parameters to ensure this does not happen can actually save you money.
