How to reduce your energy bills this winter

Winter is coming.  In the words of a certain John Travolta, the chills will be multiplying; but do your energy bills have to?  Inevitably the consumption will increase and alongside it the cost.   The art is in making sure that these are controlled.

The challenge in your own household is significant enough.  Timers, central heating controls and that inevitable moment where you just need to turn the heating on now.  So when in control of a portfolio of buildings, that task becomes exponentially harder.

The other concern is timing.  It is frustrating to find when an invoice comes in that a building has used 50% more consumption than last month, inevitably triggered by the turning of the weather.  Lack of controls over the heating system, staff leaving it on overnight, a genuine misunderstanding over how the systems work.  All common stories and all realistic problems.

Let your Energy Manager software take the worry away for you.  Smart Spaces lets you set the boundaries of a building’s usage and once triggered, you can know the next day.  Each individual supply can hold multiple alarms, allowing users to set different parameters depending on what they are looking for.

Want to identify a 20% day-on-day increase in consumption?  Use Smart Spaces.  Want to pick up where a site has used 10% more than the same period last year?  Use Smart Spaces.  Hoping to see when a meter is consuming 5% more than the average of the last 365 days?  Use Smart Spaces.

All it requires is a regular feed of your day+1 AMR data and the rules to be set up before you can have peace of mind.  Well, before planning ahead to the frantic Christmas period of course!
