January is the month of upgrades. Many people make a list of resolutions, hopes, goals, and dreams for the new year. With all of this self-improvement, consider spreading the love to your house’s electrical system. Certain upgrades can make a huge difference in your energy efficiency and convenience while being aesthetically pleasing, too.
Our team at Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric made a list of the top electrical upgrades for 2023. We offer various upgrades at a fair, affordable price, like smart power strips, new electrical outlets and switches, LED light bulbs, and more. Keep on reading to learn about the latest and greatest electrical advancements for 2023.
Slide Light Switches
While it may seem simple, upgrades to your light switches can improve your home’s ambiance and energy efficiency. Electricity will run the same for each upgrade but can provide more control over your light settings. And, with dimmers and timers, you can lower how much electricity you’re using like never before.
At Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric, we can install various light switches, including standard toggle light switches, dimmer switches, timer switches, 3- and 4- way switches, motion detector switches, smart outlets, and more. Call your Bacon electrician for safe, efficient lighting installations if you’re interested in upgrading your switches in the new year.
Smart Power Strips
You may have various power strips around your home, each with different appliances and chargers. Many of us forget to unplug the cord when not using it, effectively wasting power and money. Thankfully, smart power strips make saving energy easier than ever.
These nifty power strips use innovative technology to monitor electricity and cut off power to devices that aren’t in use. Install tech-savvy power strips in your home office, living room, and everywhere in between to save money on your energy bills in 2023.
If your electrical system is due for an upgrade, don’t push it off your to-do list in 2023. Your panel and circuit breaker box may need to be replaced, especially if your home is old. Typically, if your panel is older than 25 years, it’s time for a replacement. Beyond the age of your home, if your panel doesn’t use breakers, is rusted or broken, and you’re constantly flipping breakers, it may be time for a panel upgrade.
Likewise, an electric update can ensure your home has a safe, reliable stream of electricity. A modern-day panel can supply your energy needs, providing constant electricity for air conditioners, washers and dryers, dishwashers, and stoves. Many of these appliances can impact the efficiency of your system if your panel isn’t updated. If you think your system may be outdated, don’t hesitate to contact a Bacon technician for more information about an electrical repair or replacement.
LED Light Bulbs
LED (light-emitting diode) light bulbs are not only energy-efficient but long-lasting. These popular lightbulbs came to fame in 2008, and for good reason. But, many residents still haven’t made the switch. Residential LED light bulbs use at least 75% less energy than incandescent lighting. And, LED light bulbs last up to 25 times longer.
While the initial price is higher than the average incandescent lightbulb or CFL (compact fluorescent light bulb), you’ll quickly make your money back on your next electrical bill. Install these fan-favorite light bulbs in your garage, recessed lighting, lamps, and more. Enjoy LED light bulbs’ picturesque luminescence and money-saving benefits in 2023.
Smart thermostats put control of your home’s temperature at your fingertips. Once installed, smart thermostats connect to your mobile device with Wi-Fi, allowing you to change the temperature across your house. This quick access can be beneficial for energy savings and peace of mind. For example, if you go out of town, you can make sure your air conditioner is off with your Smart thermostat, with just the touch of a button.
Smart thermostats aren’t just convenient; many models provide in-depth information about your energy usage and opportunities to save money and become more efficient.
