An energy management system is a device that monitors your home’s electric use to help empower you to find savings, see what’s on or off, and even avoid disaster. It gives you the tools to break down your electrical usage and take action. Powered by a monitor that Farryn Electric can install into your electric panel, it reads the current one million times each second and processes that data to present a whole-home view you can’t get anywhere else.
See What’s Up and Know What’s On
An energy management system uses machine learning, a little AI, to look at all the power in your home and pick apart the individual devices that are on and off. It’s a unified view of the dumb and smart devices in your home through one app on your phone.
Save Energy and $$$ Money
Saving starts with understanding your home’s electrical usage. An energy management system gives you the data and information you need to act. The average homeowner can save up to 6-9% and some save much more. How much do you think you could save?
Whether power surges are coming from inside or outside the home, you can see them happen in real-time. Why is this important? The first reason is it will warn you of impending damage to your electronics. Most importantly, it will warn you of the damage done to the panel(s) in your home. Knowing you have irregular power coming in from your power supply can help avoid electrical arcing and therefore fires. The system will act as a recording device, so you have proof when you have to put a claim in for lost goods, with your power company!

When you work from home… Typically, you fawn over your workspace in the beginning, and “want” it neat and organized. You are excited to setup your desk, your printer and computer. The artwork, pictures and your chair is all thoughtfully considered. Then you get to work! The lighting isn’t great, but you ignore it… Next thing you know you are complaining about neck pain, and headaches, and you don’t feel as productive as you were in the office… so what’s wrong? Existing ambient lighting is not intended for functional lighting in the home office, and it’s necessary to add additional sources.

Track lighting was most popular in the 80s, though it is making its comeback with more modern and contemporary looks. It offers a usefulness that is enticing to designers and savvy homeowners. Traditionally used in living rooms, it’s now being installed in kitchens, dining rooms and bedrooms where it’s used indirectly by pointing the light source at shelving units, artwork or display cabinets. While it can also be used for general purpose lighting, there are so many other ways to utilize track lighting. Here are three modern ways to incorporate track lighting into your home!
Give Your Home “Curve” Appeal
Although track lighting can be used in straight lines, it can also be fun to take a new twist on it! These days, track lighting can easily be shaped into curvy lines. Not only does this feature make it easy for lighting to be incorporated into irregularly proportioned rooms, but it can also add interest to a space. Additionally, if your home has a one-off room that is difficult to evenly light, there’s sure to be a track lighting system that will do the trick.
Accentuate Accent Walls
Track lighting is a great way to shed light on an accent wall that you have put time and money into creating. For instance, if you have a wall in your living room that features unique decor, track lighting is the perfect way to enhance it; if you have a brick wall in your kitchen, use it to highlight this special asset; if you have a wall covered in chic plants, a track lighting system will bring it to life. While most people don’t think of this type of lighting system as an obvious choice for bedrooms, if your bedroom has an accent wall—either painted a different color, covered in wallpaper or in a different texture—track lighting will make it look that much more special. When it comes to installing this type of system in a bedroom, just be sure to opt for one that can be dimmed so you can control the brightness of the light.
When long, thin hallways are only lit with ceiling mounted light fittings, they can appear to be dark and gloomy. Even if the ceiling mounted light is accompanied by wall mounted lights or a lamp, it still doesn’t make enough of a difference in brightness. Luckily, installing track lighting can transform your dark hallways into the brightly lit hallways of your dreams!
