A smart house will help you to stay healthy
Government data shows that for every dollar spent on insulation and heating, there are $4-$6 saved in health costs and lost productivity.
Studies show retro-fitting insulation prevents one death for every 1000 homes insulated.
“Society saves on things like illness in the young and the elderly,” says smart home designer Warren Young of Nook. “They looked at things like deaths in the winter months, hospital admissions, if a child is sick at home, there’s a parent being kept away from work. It was $4 savings for an average adult, but it was $6 if they were elderly or very young.”
