Technology by its very nature has an impact on the environment. Electricity powers most devices of course, and energy and resources are required to produce the products themselves. Then they need to be disposed of or recycled at the end of their life.
Reducing your footprint with technology
You can choose to make a difference however, by choosing the right technology. At Living Sound, we’re passionate about reducing our impact on the environment and we do that by making sure our customers have access to green choices when planning an A/V system.
Some of these eco-friendly product choices include:
- Energy-efficient televisions that use far less power than most
- Home automation systems that reduce energy and water usage by controlling lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, window coverings, watering, etc.
- Products that shut down fully when not in use or help control other products to reduce their standby power usage
- Brands that actively work towards minimal environmental impacts through best practise environmental management
In the home: save money and add value with energy management technology
Today’s smart home automation systems not only save you money by reducing your energy usage, they can add significant value to your home. Highly energy efficient homes are able to gain price premiums over conventional homes so your investment in energy smart technology will certainly pay off. Not just for your wallet but the environment too.
Commercial premises: reduce costs and increase returns with energy efficiency
Choosing an energy-efficient solution for your commercial premises makes good business sense. First of all, it doesn’t have to cost any extra to go with more efficient products. But more importantly, a well thought out solution can save you thousands in reduced electricity usage and increase your rental returns too.
