Kill A Watt® monitor
Ever wonder how much electricity that big screen TV consumes? Or that old refrigerator or freezer in the garage? You might be surprised how the cost of appliances and gadgets found in our homes can add up on an energy bill each month. A Kill A Watt monitor is a great way for members to see how much energy an appliance is consuming in their homes.
The Kill A Watt monitor is a small, lightweight device that plugs into a typical 120 volt outlet. Simply plug the Kill A Watt monitor into the outlet and the appliance into the Kill A Watt. Leave that appliance plugged into the Kill A Watt for an hour, and the easy to read LED display will show you the actual cost of power consumed by that appliance. The unit will also project the cost of continued use of the appliance by day, week, month or year. Members can compare the cost of their appliances to an average energy use cost chart included with the Kill A Watt or log on to www.energystar.gov to see if it's time to upgrade to a more efficient ENERGY STAR® model.
Members can check out a Kill A Watt monitor at the Beltrami Electric office and find out how little changes can add up to great savings!
