Are there any energy saving products out there that actually work? I took some time out to check out the latest electricity saving devices on the market.

Efergy Energy Saving Device

Efergy Elite Wireless Energy Monitor

Efergy Elite Wireless Energy Monitor

The Efergy Energy Saving Meter helps measure the amount of electricity you are using.The monitor records electricity consumption and converts it into a monetary value, based on the cost price of your electricity. This is recorded by day, week and month, and updates every six seconds, so you can easily see the cost of turning on the tv or making a cup of coffee. Data is stored in the internal memory, and past data can be seen by scrolling through the records.Essentially if you’re looking to save money and help the planet by energy saving then this is one of the great electricity saving devices. It’s simple to fit, shows the current cost of your usage in a number of units – £’s, kgCO2 and kWh – and gives immediate results.

Eco Kettle

I had never even heard of an Eco Kettle until today – perhaps one of the more obvious electricity saving devices. It is estimated that on average, we boil twice the volume of water needed. This means we use twice the energy we need to and twice as much time. With a 3kW kettle that’s the same as wasting the energy of around 50 light bulbs!The Eco Kettle has an internal reservoir which holds a full capacity of water ready for use, while the measuring button allows any quantity from a single cupful to full capacity to be released into the separate chamber for boiling. The result? A significant energy saving with exactly the right amount of water every time you boil – no more waste.During independent consumer trials directed by the Energy Saving Trust, the Eco Kettle used over 30% less energy than standard kettles – go Eco Kettle!

Energy Saving Intelli Plug

Energy saving plug

This is an adaptor with an energy saving difference: plug your PC into the master socket and extensions into the side plugs. When you switch off your PC or put it in standby mode, the power will be shut down to the extensions as well.Even better, the IntelliPlug looks for patterns of power usage rather than simply cutting off the power when it drops below a set threshold. Additionally, the Intelliplug has a basic surge protector to keep your computer safe – always important with electricity saving devices of this kind.

Energy Saving Light Bulbs

More and more people are switching to low energy, energy saving light bulbs, which you can get very cheaply indeed.In most homes, lighting accounts for around 10-15 per cent of an electricity bill. Traditional light bulbs waste a lot of their energy by turning it into heat. Each energy saving bulb can reduce your electricity bill by up to £7 a year. They also last, on average, up to 12 times longer than ordinary light bulbs.And now you can even get dimmable energy light bulbs.
