Energy Use Apps

We love the way technology has advanced in our industry! Yes, you can now even use your smartphone when it comes to HVAC! Not only are you able to change the comfort of your home with your smartphone, but now you’re able to monitor your energy use.  Using the data collected in these apps, you will be equipped to make smarter decisions about your air conditioning usage to conserve energy and save money.

  • Kill-Ur-Watts: For iPhone and iPad, Kill-Ur-Watts uses Green Button Connect to access data provided by your utility company (where available). With the app, you can view, track, and manage your residential electricity use. You’ll receive energy-savings tips, see where your energy dollars are going and how your household’s energy use compares with others.
  • Energy Consumption Analyzer: For Android, Windows and iPhone, the Energy Consumption Analyzer app helps you track your energy usage. Add meters for gas, electricity and water and record your meter readings, and the app will graph your energy use, showing you the rate of consumption.
  • Energy Tracker: For Android, Windows and iPhone, this app helps you avoid unnecessary energy expenses by monitoring how much energy your system uses. This App will also export the data gathered into an Excel file for you. This app costs $0.99.
  • Energy Cost Calculator:  For Android, Windows and iPhone, this app helps users calculate operating costs and energy usage of electric equipment and machinery, including carbon emissions. Input how many hours of energy used per day and this app will spit out an estimated bill for the month!
