The Castro Valley heating and general contractor team here at B. A. Morrison has compiled the following list of very cool “green” apps for the home.
1. Save H2O
This free app calculates how much water your household typically consumes. You tell the intuitive calculator how many people use the bathroom over how many days — and provide other similar types of input. The app will measure your consumption and suggest products and ideas to reduce water consumption and save on your bill.
2. Sprinkler Times
Many Bay Area residents over-water their lawns. This harms your property, drains your pocket book, and damages the environment in one fell swoop. Sprinkler Times will help you make a customized schedule for watering your plants/lawn based on inputs, such as your soil type, the types of plants you grow, the amount of sun exposure your property gets, and so forth.
3. One Stop Green Mobile App
This feature rich app comes with a calculator to help you audit your home energy use (keep tabs on air conditioning costs) and measure your water usage. In addition, it suggests environment-friendly products.
These apps can certainly help you cut back on energy usage and make more informed decisions as a homeowner. A quality Castro Valley heating and general contractor expert can also help you make more strategic and effective decisions.
