It seems like new appliances are emerging every day, but which ones are worth the money you’re spending? Here are five appliances that can not only make your life easier but also help you save:
Nest Thermostat We all know the feeling of not wanting to get out of our warm beds to get ready for work, or forgetting to adjust the temperature before leaving the house and seeing the extra usage reflected on our bills. The Nest Thermostat can help eliminate those problems. This smart thermostat learns your habits and adjusts the temperature accordingly – making your house more pleasant while you’re in it, and less wasteful when you aren’t. It also comes with a smartphone app to show you how much energy you use (and save!) each day!
Unlike most pop-out outlets that are designed to fit into desks or tables, this outlet is made to improve your traditional wall outlets. With three spaces for plugs, this outlet maximizes your wall space, and its child-safe design and ability to disappear into the wall offers an extra layer of protection for children’s inquisitive fingers.
This multifunctional device pairs smart-home devices with money-saving insights into how much you spend to run certain devices in your home. The WeMo plugs straight into your existing outlets and allows any device plugged into it to be controlled by an app on your smartphone. This app also sends you reports on how much energy each device uses and estimates how much it costs you per month, showing you where you can make changes to save money.
Tired of lecturing your kids about turning off the lights when they leave the room? Cringing every time your electricity bill arrives? With an occupancy/ vacancy-sensing light switch, you have one less thing to worry about on a day-to-day basis. These light switches sense when you enter or leave a room and adjust the lights accordingly, meaning fewer things on your mind and more money in your pocket.
Have you ever wondered exactly how your energy bill gets so high? It can be hard to improve when you aren’t sure what’s causing the problem in the first place. This device measures surface temperatures around your home and pinpoints exactly where there are drafts or energy leaks so that you can minimize your energy costs and maximize your savings.
