Are You Looking for a Qualified Electrician?
Did you Know?
Advanced Power Strips (APS) look just like ordinary power strips, except that they have built-in features that are designed to reduce the amount of energy used by many consumer electronics. There are several different types of APSs on the market, but they all operate on the same basic principle of shutting off the supply power to devices that are not in use. By replacing your standard power strip with an APS, you can significantly cut the amount of electricity used by your home office and entertainment center devices, and save money on your electric bill.
There are many ways you can reduce electricity use in your home:
- Appliances and electronics — Purchase energy-efficient products and operate them efficiently.
- Lighting — Purchase energy-efficient products, operate them efficiently, and incorporate more daylighting into your home using energy-efficient windows and skylights.
- Electric space heating and cooling — Purchase energy-efficient electric systems and operate them efficiently. Incorporate passive solar design concepts into your home, which include using energy-efficient windows. Properly insulate and air seal your home.
- Electric water heating — Purchase an energy-efficient electric water heater and operate it efficiently.
