Kill A Watt
Want to make your home more energy efficient? Want to find the real energy hogs in your house? Then the Kill A Watt is the Tech-Tool for you.
Professionally, I have used a variety of power monitoring tools and the Kill A Watt is the best balance for price and quality.
How it works:
You just plug the Kill A Watt in a standard power outlet and then plug into it whatever it is that you want to test. That’s it. You can forceast your costs with a little data from your electric bill.
At home we are energy geeks to begin with and yet we still found hidden energy hogs using the Kill A Watt.
(BTW – our oven has a built in analog clock that drew an unusual amount of current. It must have been defective. We never look at the oven clock so I opened the back of the oven and disconnected the clock. One small step for energy efficiency.)
