These amazing, innovative new devices work like conventional outlets, but with one extra special feature. They can be controlled via smart phone, even when you aren’t at home. This means that if you accidentally left the iron plugged in before you left for the office, you can turn it off from the comfort of your desk and not worry about starting a fire. It also means that you can leave power hungry appliances plugged in, without wasting electricity.
Traditional water heater tanks can require a lot of energy to heat such a large amount of water. Older models of water heaters are often expensive to power, and can make everyday tasks like showers and washing dishes a major hassle. In contrast, tankless water heater units are small and sleek. They can fit inside of a hanging cabinet or beneath your bathroom vanity, giving you much needed extra square footage. However, the best part about owning a tankless model is that your hot water will be delivered on demand, when and where you need it. No more long wait times for a hot shower, or wasted energy. They also require fewer repairs overtime, so you’ll be saving money in multiple ways.
If you’re still using an outdated analog thermostat, then you’re likely throwing cash down the drain every month. New digital models allow homeowners to program their thermostats, which will automatically turn off your heater or air conditioning unit once the desired temperature is reached.
Years ago, when most people began to switch to money saving, ecofriendly LED bulbs, they had to abandon their mood lighting. The few existing dimmer devices that could be used with LED’s were either not adequate or were very expensive. Today, there are multiple options available, and they are more affordable than ever before. In fact, many dimmer switch models on the market are designed to be used with both CFL and LED bulbs.
