Do you know how much energy you use each month? If you depend on your utility bill to give you this amount, you may be misinformed. Most utility bills are estimates and are not an accurate account of how much gas and electricity you have actually consumed. If you want to know how much energy you use each month, consider a Smart Meter.
In austere times many are paying close attention to their expenditure. With gas and electricity prices you cannot control your spending unless you can truthfully measure what you use. Installing a Smart Meter allows you understand how much energy you use so you can take control.
A Smart Meter is a simple device. It monitors and records your energy usage and provides an accurate update every 30 minutes on how much electricity has been used; gas usage being recorded once a day. It is an excellent tool for people who want to stay in control of their energy costs. Once you are aware of the actual costs you can begin to make adjustments to reduce them.
The more informed you are about your utility outlay the easier it is for you to control it. With the information a Smart Meter provides you can set realistic goals for how much energy you want to use, in turn controlling the amount of money you spend. If your Smart Meter shows you are using too much gas or electricity you can create a plan to reduce their usage.
Currently you may receive monthly or quarterly utility bills, but the only information they provide are estimates of your total energy use. Smart Meters give detailed readouts which show exactly how much gas and electricity you use in your home per day. It makes systematically controlling your energy bills possible.
