Take the Leap: A Critical Step to Being Energy Efficient

As concerns continue to grow for the future of our planet, energy efficiency is at the forefront of how to reduce our carbon footprint. This is true not only for large commercial buildings but for the home as well.

At one time, we achieved energy efficiency at home by sealing up cracks and leaks and upgrading to Star Energy Efficient appliances. But a level of energy efficiency sufficient to make a difference on climate change takes greater effort and a shift in values. According to the Energy Pulse Study conducted by The Shelton Group, while two-thirds of U.S. homeowners consider home energy performance a top priority, almost half have done nothing to improve it. That’s because homeowners value comfort and style and are much more likely to invest in home upgrades that provide those elements such as a bathroom redesign or outdoor kitchen. The impetus toward moving the dial toward energy efficiency is slow to come about.

AI & Energy Efficiency

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now changing what it means to be energy efficient in the home, and evidence shows the tides are quickly turning. Homeowners are learning they can be comfortable (even trendy), save money, and save the environment all at the same time using artificial intelligence.

When most people think of AI, they think of The Matrix. In reality, AI simply refers to computer systems that behave intelligently by applying algorithms to sense and manage data.

We all lead busy lives. We come and go from room to room and to and from our homes. Artificial intelligence can provide us with a win-win situation — maintaining the comfort we long for our homes to provide, preserving our budget for the things we want and need, all while substantially reducing the amount of energy we consume.

How AI Works in Our Home

Artificial intelligence puts the homeowner in control of home energy use. It learns your habits and can adjust your home temperature accordingly. It can also notify you when the energy you are using is subject to high-demand pricing. By using smart thermostats, smart plugs, and smart light switches, homeowners will be able to know and manage the energy usage of plugged-in but not in-use devices as well as lower light usage in rooms not occupied.

It’s common knowledge that many homeowners have made a transition to renewable energy such as solar. We can see it plainly by the solar panels on their homes. Artificial intelligence furthers this change by optimizing the power we consume inside our homes. MIT supports the implementation and ongoing use of AI in this way, claiming that energy use could potentially be reduced by 30%.

Many homeowners are already enjoying the benefits of AI in their homes. Amazon reports that it sold tens of millions of Echo devices in 2018 and reported that Alexa can conduct 70,000 skills such as playing your favorite music, delivering your morning news, and providing the daily weather forecast. When saving energy is crucial not only for our pockets but for the planet, it makes sense to add artificial intelligence like Builddie for your home energy use. Never again will you need to find that the kids went out in the yard to play without turning off the TV, or that you forgot to turn off the light upstairs in your bedroom.

Builddie is looking for passionate energy-saving homeowners to help test this global-warming changing product. If you’re passionate about saving the planet and saving money, sign up to be part of this revolution.
