Savings for your utilities bills
Home owners with older properties have a challenge far greater than those owners of newer properties, whose homes have been built with the latest construction methods. Older homes are just not as efficient. Insulation and replacement windows certainly will help in increasing the efficiency of a home.
In general, additional savings can be obtained by replacing the HVAC equipment, the hot water heaters and the kitchen appliances with energy saving ratings. The next step of savings will come with using the latest technology for certain components of the home. And her we can suggest Adjustable Universal Vacancy Sensor Light Switch.
Watt Stopper's universal application wall switch vacancy sensors replace standard wall switches. These switches offer convenient, cost-effective energy savings throughout the home. They are engineered to comply with California's rigorous Title 24-2005 residential energy code.
Universal application sensors can be used in virtually every room in a residence. Homeowners can select appropriate on/off mode, time delay and light level settings to maximize potential energy savings without compromising comfort or convenience. The RS-250 can be used in any space where residents want to select a specific time delay and daylight contributions are significant.
RS-250 wall switch vacancy sensors use advanced PIR (Passive Infrared) technology to sense the difference between infrared energy from a person in motion and the background space. They operate as vacancy sensors when utilizing the preset factory setting for manual-On operation. When programmed for automatic-On, they operate as occupancy sensors.
A setup button and two adjustment trimpots are conveniently located behind the On/Off button and allow for a variety of additional control options such as manual or automatic-On, time delay, and light level sensing.
We will certainly keep you up dated with other saving suggestions. Of course we would be happy to hear from you if you have a suggestion you would like to pass on.
