Convert Your Home To Green
As homeowners there are things we can all do to save energy and contribute to a "green" environment. While home energy management is desirable for most to keep costs within reason, other than perhaps one or two obvious high electricity consumers in our homes, it's sometimes difficult to know more precisely how the total kilowatt-hour (KWH) monthly consumption breaks down. Before investing in major new appliances or home electronics, you may want to calculate the expected impact to your monthly bill. With the right measurement tools you may be able to combine energy savings with other desirable factors to make a more satisfying purchase overall.
The Energy Detective (TED)Perhaps the first energy management tool to consider is the TED Model 1001 pictured at right. This is a device that measures your total household power consumption in real time. This unit provides instant feedback and accumulated consumption throughout the day, week, and month so you know how your usage is tracking long before your bill arrives. If you're on a strict energy budget, this device will allow you to temper activities to stay on track. If your goal is to reduce your monthly bill by 10% or 20%, TED will provide the data allowing you to react as necessary. Of course by helping yourself, you're also helping your community to protect our environment.
The Kill-A-Watt EZThe Kill-A-Watt EZ from P3 International provides a simple to use plug-in power meter which shows you the amount of energy used, and more importantly the associated cost, of the appliance or electronic device plugged into it. Once you enter your KWH cost from your electric bill the EZ will begin measuring the consumption of the attached device. After a few minutes of operation the Kill-A-Watt EZ can display the projected usage cost of the device by day, week, month, or year.
The combination of the above two measurement devices can provide you with the accurate data you need to build a "go green" plan for your home and meet your energy budget. The Kill-A-Watt EZ allows you to measure the large consumers of power in your home to compare with the advertised consumption of new "energy efficient" models. Once you have identified devices to replace, you can make real progress toward you ultimate energy goals by picking the highest consuming devices to replace first. Or picking a device to replace with a new model providing desirable new features and acceptable energy savings. Once the new appliances or electronics are in place, TED can help you manage your consumption to stay on budget. For more information visit the TED store.
Typically heating and air conditioning is at the tops your home energy consumption. An effective IP programmable thermostat with remote access via the Internet, may best fit with your overall "go green" plan. Take a look at the NT20e IP Thermostat from Proliphix.
