carbonTRACK turns your house into a Smart Home to make your life a whole lot easier. It lets you control your entire home, all from your phone.

 

You can turn appliances off from anywhere: work, the supermarket, the beach (or even your bed), all you need is a few smart plugs and a carbonTRACK hub.

 

You can even set schedules for appliances to turn on and off automatically, so you don’t have to think about whether you left your electric blanket, iron, or air-con running. And, you can turn them on too – start your slow-cooker at the perfect time, cool down the house on a hot summer’s day before you get home, switch on a lamp to ward off intruders when you’re on holidays.

 

 

Finally, carbonTRACK sheds light on what uses energy in your home, and helps you take action to reduce wasted electricity. It show you how much electricity you use from the grid and, if you have solar, lets you track how that’s going too.

 

carbonTRACK is super easy to use. Once installed, you simply have to download the app to your smart phone and log in. From the app you can see your energy use, and control your connected appliances.

 

If you happen to have any trouble, we’re here to help. The carbonTRACK team is based in Melbourne, Australia and our friendly customer care team can talk you through how to use carbonTRACK.

carbonTRACK will help you to lower your electricity bill and become more energy efficient. You can see how much energy you’re using and when you’re using it.

 

Understanding the way you use energy in your home is the first step to lowering your electricity bill.

 

The second step is to identify energy guzzlers in your home – you can do this with Smart Plugs, which track how much electricity individual appliances are using (as well as letting you turn the appliance on and off).

 

Appliances make up at least 30% of your electricity bill. It is therefore important to buy the right appliances, maintain them and replace them at the right time to ensure you maximise our energy efficiency. The way in which you use and maintain appliances has an impact on your energy bill.

 

For example, if you place your fridge next to your oven. The heat from the oven will make the fridge work harder to keep the food cool. This will have an impact on your electricity bill. The two appliances that will work harder if they are not properly sealed is a fridge and oven. If cold air escapes from the fridge through an ineffective seal the fridge must work harder to maintain the set temperature.

 

Energy efficient appliances have lower running costs. By replacing an old air conditioner, you can save $20 to $90 on your energy bill annually. If your air-conditioner is older than 20 years, it is worth considering an upgrade. If your refrigerator was made in the 90’s or before you can save $120 – $250 on your fridge per year by switching to a new one.

 

Fridge and freezer combos are also more energy efficient than having two separate units.Appliances on standby can account up to 10% of electricity bills. This means on your monthly bill some appliances use more energy while on standby compared to when they are in use. But you won’t know any of this if you can’t see how different appliances are performing.

 

carbonTRACK Smart Plugs will help reduce standby power, see whether it’s time to service a major appliance, and identify which appliance to upgrade next based on their potential energy savings.

 

The third step is to ensure your heating and cooling is operating at maximum efficiency for you.

 

You can also save up to 10 percent a year on your cooling bills by adjusting your thermostat. Setting your thermostat to the highest (or lowest in winter) temperature that is comfortable for you will save the most money.

 

Every one degree cooler in summer adds around 10% to the amount of electricity the air-con uses – which can quickly add up! With a carbonTRACK Thermostat, you can quickly and easily adjust the temperature of your heating or cooling system from anywhere with your phone.
