Energy Monitors – a great ‘power’ tool
Energy monitors are a great tool to help with rising electricity bills. They will help you make better decisions regarding your appliances. For instance, it can help tell you the cost of keeping an appliance plugged in or when it might make sense to replace an appliance.
Choose from the Kill A Watt, the Kill A Watt EZ or the Kill A Watt PS.
The Kill A Watt, the original energy monitor, simply plugs into your electric outlet and your appliance plugs into the monitor. The LCD display will tell you the electric consumption by the Kilowatt-hour, the same measurement the utility companies use. You can also check the quality of your power by monitoring voltage, line frequency, and power factor.
The Kill a Watt EZ operates the same but you can program the EZ with your actual Killowatt per hour costs. The EZ will then display just how much the appliance is costing you per day, week, month or annually.
Finally, the Kill A Watt PS will educate you on your energy use of a single appliance or your entire computer or theater system while protecting those electronics as well. The PS features soft power-up for your systems and advanced surge protection. It will display maximum and minimum measured values of volts, amps, watts, PF and leakage current. No Load Mode powers down the unit when it detects no current is being drawn.
These electric energy monitors are an innovative solution to learning about and controlling your energy usage and electric bill. A must for those thinking of going solar!
