New Year's Resolution #5 - Save Money: Kill A Watt

You can identify which appliances are really costing you money with the Kill A Watt device. By plugging the Kill A Watt into a wall socket and then connecting an appliance to the gadget, the Kill A Watt will measure the consumption of power by the kilowatt-hour allowing you to calculate just how much that appliance will cost you in power.

The thought here is to use the Kill A Watt to determine which appliances you should use less or perhaps replace with more energy-efficient appliances to save money in the long run.

But measuring appliance consumption is just the tip of the iceberg. By plugging this in, you can also test if an outlet is working, or evaluate the quality of the electrical power provided by your utility company. It does this by monitoring voltage (Volt) and line frequency (Hz). It’s perfect for detecting voltage drops around the house, to predict brownout conditions or to make sure a new home’s outlets are in working condition before escrow closes.

Imagine being able to forecast your electric bill before you get it. With the Kill a Watt, you can calculate electrical expenses by the hour, day, week, month, even year. With an accuracy within 0.2%, you can safely know what to expect your expenses to be.
