PictureLED bulbs use a third less energy and last at least 10 times longer than compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Outlet and light switch gaskets help stop drafts and save energy. A filter whistle sounds when the heating and cooling system filter is 80 percent clogged and needs to be changed. Faucet aerators save water and improve efficiency. A hot water gauge measures the temperature of hot tap water, possibly allowing you to turn down your hot water heater thermostat to save money and prevent scalds. The thermometer magnet monitors the temperature of your home. Over an eight hour day, heating bills can be reduced by as much as 3 percent and cooling bills by as much as 5 percent for every degree thermostats are set back.
