Now remote working has stayed the norm in the new year too, it's a good idea to bear in mind the rising energy consumption that comes with your home office lifestyle. People working from home will simply use more energy. Niko is sharing a few concrete tips & tricks on how you can #StayAtHome and keep your energy bill under control without having to put too much effort into it yourself!
1. Measuring is knowing and knowing is saving
Every kWh you're not consuming, you're not paying for. That means knowing how much you're consuming is the first step towards efficient energy management. You can easily save 5 to 15% energy that way. On the touchscreen of your Niko Home Control installation or using the Niko Home app, you can view your home's electricity, gas and water consumption at any time.
2. Heat consciously and per zone
With Niko Home Control's zone heating, you can very easily heat – via the central touchscreen or remotely using the Niko Home app – only when and where needed. This is where you choose the temperature as well as the time of heating for every room or zone in your home. In a new-build house, this could save you 14% on your heating costs, increasing to as much as 18% in a renovation.
3. Say goodbye to standby consumption
Switch off all your home office essentials fully at the end of the working day, instead of choosing standby. Niko Home Control's all-off button makes this smart routine easier than ever. With just the push of a button, you can switch off all your devices (and lighting) that you won't be using while you're away. This approach reduces your home's standby consumption, given that a great many devices still consume 75% of their energy even in standby mode.
