If you’ve bought a HD television in the last few years, or have been thinking about it, you’re likely familiar with 1080p resolution (often marketed as full HD). But the talk lately is all about 4K TV and OLED TV, which might leave you wondering if it’s really worth an upgrade or the extra cost. TV manufacturers keep looking for new ways to bring your living room closer to reality, but is it right for you?
Refrigerators aren’t given too much thought, except when they stop working. But the fact is that older units are some of the largest consumers of electrical energy within a home.
So if you’re looking for a new refrigerator, why not put some thought into getting one that is energy efficient with the latest technology. Upgrading to an efficient fridge could save you $40 or more each year.
I can’t think of a technology that’s been getting more press time lately then the tablet. The technology is evolving at a rapid pace, adding features and capabilities that are making the tablet a great choice for a second (or third, or fourth) computing device.

While some moms may appreciate a new, energy-efficient appliance as a Mother’s Day gift, your best bet might be cooking a great meal for mom.
While you’re in the kitchen, consider the tools and appliances you’re using and whether it’s time to upgrade to new, energy-efficient versions. You won’t just save energy and money, you’ll get some great new features as well.

In the last 30 years computers have become a standard appliance in a lot of households, maybe not as integrated as the HAL 9000 of science fiction movie fame, but still pretty important.
When you factor in the peripherals, such as printers and scanners, you might be surprised how much energy computers actually use. Don’t fret though: with a few simple changes, you can reduce the amount of energy your computing needs require.
