Home Energy Saving Devices for a Greener Home

There are a number of home energy saving devices which will repay their purchase cost within a reasonable time. This being so, many of them are also money saving devices!

What's here?

home energy saving devices - bye bye stand byElectricity saving is becoming important for all of us because of the effects upon our planet of profligate energy use. Energy efficiency can be achieved partly by using some of the home power saving devices described here.

This page takes a look at LEDS and CFLs, home energy metres, stand-by busters and some other home energy saving devices which should pay you back within a reasonable time frame.

What counts as a reasonable time frame depends upon how deep your pockets are! Some of the more expensive home energy saving devices may have a long payback time but still be worth the outlay because over their lifetime they save you a good deal of cash.

Of course, there is no substitute for turning off appliances and lights when you don't need them! Simple and cheap.

Home energy saving devices: Check your energy supplier!

Energy meters

"Kill a Watt" is an energy measuring gizmo. Plug one of these home energy saving devices in to any household socket then plug in your favourite energy-guzzling device. The Kill a Watt shows you exactly how much energy you are drawing. It's quite inexpensive at less than £20.00 in the UK. I believe there is a US version for 115 volt power supplies, too. These home energy saving devices should easily earn their keep, provided that your family is ready to learn from the info they provide! They can also help sort those perennial questions such as "Which is worse, the TV or the computer left on?". You'll have the proof!

Stand By

Now you can slay the vampire energy devices with one fell swoop. Stand by buttons on idle machines can account for as much as 10% of energy use in a household, so it is well worth making sure that your electricity charges are not being hiked by these energy suckers.

from Amazon is a system which has had rave reviews from users. You just plug in the devices and use a simple infra-red remote to contr...
