The autumn break is just around the corner. For many Danish families, this has become synonymous with a much-needed holiday week at the holiday home. But even if we pull the plug on our busy everyday life in the city apartment or villa, the electricity meter does not, of course, take a holiday.
The autumn break is just around the corner. For many Danish families, this has become synonymous with a much-needed holiday week at the holiday home. But even if we pull the plug on our busy everyday life in the city apartment or villa, the electricity meter does not, of course, take a holiday. Your electricity consumption simply changes address for a while, as all the normal everyday activities are transferred from the year-round residence to the holiday home. There may therefore be several good reasons to get extra control over electricity consumption in the holiday home.
Holiday home purchases have exploded over the past decade and the younger generation in particular has rediscovered the old joy of second homes. However, the most significant difference between then and now is that today we use the holiday home much more year-round. There is therefore a radically higher electricity consumption associated with holiday home life than in the past.
We decorate ourselves less spartanly in our holiday homes as our grandparents. There is a growing tendency to want to transfer the electrical units of good everyday life from the year-round home to the cottage. This means that today we often have both flat screens, iPads, mobile phones, laptops, routers, washing machines and heat pumps in the cottage, all of which add theirs to the increasing electricity consumption in the cottage.
If you are a member of Watts, you have the option to add your holiday home' electricity meter to the Watts app to connect you directly into the 'engine room' of your holiday home electricity meter. Through the app, you get an instant insight into your current consumption as it progresses hour by hour. In addition, you also get a unique overview of the different power zones of the day, which tells you exactly when the electricity is greenest in the sockets.
Watts is not only set up to create transparency in your electricity consumption. The main mission is to create a continuous focus on the green transition and our shared responsibility for a more sustainable future. Therefore, watts app also provides a function that at any time of the day can tell how much CO2 the current in question contains, and when on the day you can usefully wait to, for example, put the dishes or sink in the cottage to reduce your carbon footprint.
With Watts energy assistant you get the right overview of electricity consumption, electricity prices and special times for extra green energy. This not only gives a greater insight into the whole energy issue of the holiday home, but hopefully also creates a greater awareness of consumption habits. An awareness that can ultimately lead to savings that benefit both the personal economy and the climate.
