Technology today has made it easy to save money with just a smal out of pocket expense. Here are just a couple of examples of things you can purchase for a small amount, but will save you in the long run.
- Smart Strip Energy Saving Power Strip
($31-$42)-Smart Strips have a few different models available and save energy costs by automatically shutting down or starting up your peripherals after it senses the computer has been shut off or turned on.
- Light switch and outlet insulating sealers
(we just installed these this year) (about $2)-These reduce drafts from outlets and switches located on the outside walls of your home.
- P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor
($24-$50) This device makes usage costs extraordinarily easy to calculate. Simply plug the device into the electric appliance before plugging the appliance into the wall.
These are just three of the thousands of tools on the market you can use to monitor and lower your electricity usage.
