Quick Tips / Check Your Energy

796px-YardstickUse a home energy reader as your yardstick. These gadgets make gauging your home’s power – down to the last night-light – easier than converting Fahrenheit to Celsius (and when you know how much you’re using, you’re way more likely to conserve).  Just unplugging that plasma, stereo system, and the battery pack for your laptop can make a difference in your yearly power bill!

MGB recommends: “The Energy Detective” – a plug-in device that gives you info on how much power (and associated cash for energy bills) you’re using throughout your house ($145).  For a more budget friendly energy bug, check out the “Kill A Watt” to see how much energy your individual appliances are using ($24).
