‘Smart’ methods to home living
In Hawaii, we work hard for what we have, and we deeply cherish our free time with family and friends. It’s time we invest our hard work into making sure our homes are safe and healthy places for our ohana. RevoluSun Smart Home’s Innovation Center is an interactive showroom where homeowners can learn about new technologies and easy savings through energy efficiency.
Here, you can touch, feel and learn more about everything needed to be less dependent on imported energy while enjoying the comforts of home even more. Smart Home offerings include PV hot water, skylights and sun tunnels, whole house fans, solar battery storage, EV charging stations, smart home automation and security solutions.
Eileen Maeda of Kuliouou recently had two solar powered skylights and two sun tunnels installed in her home. After attending a free seminar and a consultation in the RevoluSun Smart Home Innovation Center, her family decided to have natural lighting products installed in their home.
“The ordering and installation process was very easy and straightforward,” said Maeda. “The skylights and sun tunnels have really benefited our everyday lives — we notice a dramatic difference in the increased brightness of our rooms and love how it feels. The skylights open electronically with an easy to use wireless remote, releasing the hot air from our open beam ceilings, which in turn keeps our kitchen and living room a lot cooler. The skylights decrease our need for air conditioning, and the sun tunnels have LED bulbs, so we are saving on our energy expenses even at night!”
The company is constantly expanding Smart Home offerings. Its regular meeting place for RevoluSun Smart Home’s monthly seminars have been packed, comfortably seating about 40 people. The next seminar is Saturday, April 16 from 10 to 11 a.m., at 210 Ward Ave., Ste. 140. This is a free public event. Space is limited, so please RSVP at revolusun.com.
Also, in celebration of Ear th Month and in collaboration with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, the Innovation Center is hosting a “Solutions” art gallery. Artwork by local artists Aaron Char, Shannon McCarthy, “Manny Aloha” Pangilinan, Jeff Hawe, Eduardo Bolioli and Mark Cunningham will be on display and open to the public the whole month of April, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
