A Few New Green Gadgets

October 13, 2009

So have you thought about your greenifying your home appliances?  Everybody knows about the government’s Energy Star program.  It’s a seal of approval given by the government for appliances that help businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.

It’s all very utilitarian in most cases, though.  What about those other newer electronics?  Have you thought about those?  

Your computer is the first place to look.  I speak from experience on this.  You know how they say “leave your computer on, all the time”?  Have you ever seen what that will do to an electrical usage bill? 

To put it in a rather simplistic way, most laptops run on 65-90W power supplies. Contemporary desktops are using ballpark 350-500W power supplies.  The average homeowner uses 80 percent less energy by turning off the personal computer and clicking on the laptop.  At current laptop prices, the cost could be recovered within six months. 

Another item worthy of checking the green-stats on would be televisions.  Those huge new flat-screen televisions can hit you with a double whammy.  They are costly at the store and costly to operate. 

But some of those wide-screens can have much smaller electric consumption rates.  The Samsung 8000 series features 46 to 55 inch screens that operate using 40% less electricity than competitors.  You’ll want to check how much electricity your TV (or TVs) are using.

There’s also a device to do just that.  The Energy Detective is a device on the small side of an alarm clock that measures electrical usage.  You hook up the device, cleverly acronymed as “TED,” and within seconds are shown information about usage and cost.  If you can see it, you can manage it.  (Find out more at www.theenergydetective.com)

It’s all part of being a better energy consumer.  Greenifying is not always easy, but it is always worth it to all of us.
