April 2010 Newsletter
April 15… tax day. UGH!
We’ve dusted off a classic lil’ video from 2009 that’s sure to make you smile. Enjoy!
This month we welcome a new SGR partner—Millennium Sounds.
While the company name indicates sound systems, Matt Reeve and his team do so much more. Services feature automation for your home to make life simpler by integrating state-of-the-art audio, video, lighting, communications and control equipment. He’s got some cool tips featuring new products for the home that are energy efficient and green...check them out below!
Dimmers. Changing light switches to dimmers is a simple and affordable way to help energy costs. The grid shows that dimming lighting saves energy and extends bulb life. Matt and his team also recommend products such as Control4 that allow homeowners to preprogram lighting and HVAC systems. Control4 uses dimmers, timers and occupancy sensors to reduce energy waste.
Pass Code Door Locks. This is a great idea for working parents. Instead of using keys to get into the house at the end of the day, each member of the family has a password to open the front door. Parents can set up a system to receive an email or text message when kids open the door from school. No phone calls interrupting the work day, but you know they’re safe and sound.
Energy Efficient Televisions.If you’re getting a tax refund you might be thinking about buying a new flat screen television. Matt recommends shopping for Energy Star flat panels since they use about 30% less energy. He says to look for the tag when shopping.
