    Do something good for your family, your pocketbook, and the environment. Make your home a little greener. A few simple changes in your house can go a long way to lower high energy bills and protect the environment. To be green, you’ve got to be efficient. Here are a few ways Modern Systems can help make your home a little greener.

     

    1. Lighting

    • Compact Flourescent Light Bulbs use 66% less energy than a standard incodescent bulb and last up to ten time longer.
    • Making sure your lights are turned off when not in use can cut back on your energy costs.
    • Having a Lynx Touch security system from Modern Systems with Total Connect can help you. With lighting control, you can control your lighting from anywhere using a PC, smartphone or tablet.

     

    2. Heating and Cooling

    • Almost half of a home’s energy consumption is due to heating and cooling.
    • Each degree below 68 F during colder weather saves 3%-5% more heating energy, while keeping it at 78 F in warmer weather will save you energy and money.
    • Modern Systems’ Lynx Touch with Total Connect gives you the ability to adjust your thermostat from anywhere. When you are at work or away, simply adjust the temperature to 68 F in colder weather and 78 F in warmer weather. Before you arrive home, set it back to a temperature you feel comfortable in. By the time you arrive home, the temperature will be exactly what is most comforable to you.

     

    3. Electronics

    • Electronics left on can make the meter run up just as much as your lights. Control4 can help with that. Not only does Control4 allow you to control lighting and thermostat like the Lynx Touch, it also enables you to control virtually any appliance in your home.
    • Make sure all TVs, radios, and other electronics are all turned off from anywhere you are.
    • Adjust the thermostat and turn on ceiling fans to maintain a cool temperature in your house while you are away.

    Sit down; relax in your favorite chair. With the touch of a button, the lights dim, the TV turns on and the soundtrack swells as you hear your six speaker digital sound system come to life. Your senses are transported magically into each scene, touched by the drama, excited by the adventure.

     

    Sound like the adventure you’re looking for?

     

    To have your emotions carried away by flickering images and reproduced sound is not a simple task. But it’s effortless when you let Modern Systems direct the action. From the moment you discuss your intentions with us to the first experience you have with your finished system at home, you’ll know you made the right decision. We base our Home Theater designs on the experience the director intended. Then we compare that concept with your room and furniture lay out. Your room may be a dedicated media room, or a multi-purpose room where your Home Theater needs to disappear when not in use. We represent manufacturers of the finest Home Theater products available. We have carefully considered each product’s performance, ease of use, reliability and overall value for money.

     

    With brand names like Control4, Klipsh, JVC and Dennon, you get quality products with quality service.

     

    Just look at what Aaron Y. of Lexington, KY had to say about his new home theater installed by Modern Systems.

     

    “I wanted to thank you and your capable employees at Modern Systems for the installation of my home theater system. My wife and I both feel like we have no need to go to a movie theater ever again. And I had a great time watching UK advance to the Final Four, and felt like I was at the game itself. If I had known how easy a process it was to get a home theater system installed, I would have done it years ago.”

     

    Whether you are looking for a custom home theater system in your Lexington, Bowling Green or Somerset, KY home, or to add to your TV viewing pleasure in your living or family room, Modern Systems can design a system that works for you and your budget.
