With power, prices rising rapidly and a focus on reducing carbon emissions for a healthy planet, many people have turned to the installation of Energy Management Systems (EMS) to help the environment and their wallets.
What Is an Energy Management System?
An energy management system is a smart device that enables households to track, record, and alter their monthly electricity usage. A qualified electrician can set up specific equipment on your premises. Through the firmware put on the device, this device can properly measure, track, and send you information about your electricity usage. Your notifications and monthly electricity consumption report will be available via a secure log-in on the device’s customer portal or a mobile application that you may access on your phone. The report includes a full analysis of energy usage information, including the most energy-intensive appliances as well as the dates when they were used.
Energy management systems, when used in conjunction with a mobile app or an online portal, may give you insight into the efficiency of your electrical use and show you how to enhance and reduce it. You may save money on electricity and have a good impact on the environment by using an EMS.
Why Consider an Ems
Homeowners are encouraged to go green, but replacing energy-efficient equipment every other year can be costly. Before deciding to replace appliances, it’s easy for homeowners to discover which ones use the most electricity. In addition to lowering your monthly utility bill, an EMS system will keep you continually informed of your energy usage.
In an EMS, look for the following features:
- Anytime Access: Your EMS system should be able to show you which appliances are turned on at any given time.
- Control: Newer EMS systems allow users to control their appliances remotely, allowing them to turn them on and off. Invest in an EMS that allows you to set timers and turn appliances on and off remotely. For example, running your air conditioner while you’re at work is a waste of energy; yet, with remote access, you can switch your air conditioner on while you’re driving home.
- Data: Your system should be able to give you with accurate information that is easy to understand. This information should show accurate readings of appliances that use too much electricity or are being used excessively.
- Integration: Alternative energy sources, such as solar electricity or external battery storage, are common in many households. You should be able to monitor the energy you’ve generated and stored with your home energy management system. You may utilise your appliances in the most cost-effective way by managing both your usage from the local power grid and your usage from solar or stored electricity.
