We're passionate about energy saving products. Here's our guide to some of the best products in the industry.
The average American household spends more than $2,000 a year on energy bills. Nearly half of that goes to heating and cooling. Programmable thermostats are one of the most effective and least expensive tools to combat this cost. Not only do they save money; they reduce energy use and greenhouse gases and add considerable convenience and comfort to your home.
You could be losing almost a third of the energy in your home through cracks, gaps and holes in your interior and exterior walls, around your windows and in your ceiling. Air sealing has never been more important or safer to do yourself, and the payoff is huge. If you use the right tools, caulking and foaming are remarkably easy to do.
How clean is your air? We know that the quality of the air we breathe is crucial to our health, and yet we tolerate some of the worst pollutants in our living rooms. Start here to find the fans and air cleaners that keep your house comfortable and safe simply, and without a fuss. Lose the allergens. Wave off dander. Take a deep breath.
Timers are an inexpensive way to save money and electricity--they aren't just for empty houses anymore; today's high-tech dimmable lighting needs high-tech dimmer switches to match. Give your memory and your utility bill a break by using smart controls and switches throughout the house and even outside.
Knowing where and how your home leaks and peaks can result in a nearly instantaneous 20% reduction in energy usage, which translates into an equally snappy reduction in billing. We’ve picked out energy monitors that are accurate, durable and install without a fuss.
Today's efficient lighting options range from the new generation of CFL and LED bulbs that stay cool and glow warm, to holiday strings, solar outdoor lights, headlamps and more. Find energy-efficient lighting solutions that make our houses glow just the way we like them to, when we want them to, without stealing our pocket money.
Smart power strips automatically turn off electricity to all the things you don't need--when you turn off your TV, a smart strip turns off power to DVD players, home theater components, cable boxes, game consoles and so on. Save electricity, save energy, save your electronics!
