I can't imagine how much I have spent over the years in my quest for great sound. Now I've really done it! I have built a music room!  The ultimate stereo component.


Tips & technology cut your laundry drying costs

In this post, we’ll concentrate on techniques you can use to get your clothes dry while lowering the energy it takes to do it.

Last month, we focused on getting your clothes clean the most energy efficient way. So it only makes sense to follow with with a look at how to dry your clothes.


After the refrigerator, an electric clothes dryer typically uses the most electricity of any appliance in the home.


The challenge is that there’s no ENERGY STAR category for dryers, so you’ll need to consult the EnerGuide label to get a sense of how efficient a unit is.



It’s not just about TV anymore

Shopping for that new big screen television and overwhelmed by the selection and features available? 


It used to be that walking in to buy a TV was all about picture quality, refresh rate, size, and (hopefully) energy efficiency, but that’s slowly changing. Taking a page from Apple’s playbook, most TV manufacturers are now bulking up their product offerings with things like YouTube playback, app stores, video conferencing, WiFi, and 3D.


'Second price tag': a product costs more than you think

You’ve decided to make a big purchase - a big screen TV, a new kitchen appliance, or some other large electrically powered device. Now comes the joy of price comparison. 

Wait!  Did you know that you continue to pay for the product after you’ve brought it home? And I'm not talking about credit card payments. Electronic powered devices obviously need electricity, and you have to pay for for what we like to call “The Second Price Tag”.


Gotta have my tunes all day.

Not sure if you're like me, but I have music playing from first thing in the morning, until 45 minutes after my head hits the pillow. I can't explain exactly how that came about... I would love to hear your thoughts on music, quality playback...
