I can’t stress this point enough: living sustainably (i.e., in this case being energy efficient) and saving money so often go hand and hand. ‘Going green’ is not only helping to aide our planet, but it’s also saving you money.

I frequently get asked something to the effect of, ‘Is there anything I can do to be more energy efficient in my daily life?’ This kit is an answer to that question. If you desire to be more energy efficient in your personal, daily life, adopting these pieces of technology is a good place to start. Even small changes like LED lamps, smart power strips, and environmentally friendly heaters add up over time to rather significant savings.

If you have any questions about any of the products I’ve selected, I’d be happy to answer them in the comments section.

How to Be Green & Energy Efficient at Home, Using New Modern Tech

we all say we want to save money & be energy efficient, so why not do it

Energy Efficient LED Table Lamp, Dimmable, 4 Lighting Modes, Touch Sensitive Control Panel & Eye Care Setting
By: GUANYA

Why I Like This

Perhaps the easiest switch to make to start being more energy efficient is to swap out incandescent and CFL lights and lamps for LED alternatives. This is one of the most energy efficient LED desk lamps I could find on Amazon. It uses 75% less energy than incandescent lamps and has a lifespan of 50000 hours of light. It’s also designed with eye-care settings — a feature I always try to look for when I’m getting a desk lamp.

Contemporary, Modern Cabrini, Energy Efficient LED Tower Floor Lamp
By: Possini Euro Design

Why I Like This

A stunning, minimal design LED floor lamp. This lamp stood out to me, not only because of its clean aesthetic, but also because of its slim design, which allows for it to be put nearly anywhere (the corner of a room, behind a couch, between chairs, etc.). Like the lamp above, the LED lights allow this lamp to conserve more energy, relative to conventional lamps.

Infared Whole Room Heater with EnergySmart Technology Saves up to 35% & Energy Usage Indicator
By: Honeywell

Why I Like This

If you’re looking for a portable heater, I recommend this one. It uses Honeywell EnergySmart Technology, which, according to their site, saves up to 35% more energy than standard heaters within this product category. It’s also designed with an intuitive interface, where you can easily adjust temperature and time settings. With energy savings, comes money savings.

SKY, Energy Efficient LED Torchiere Floor Lamp – Dimmable Super Bright 30-Watt LED & Omni-Directional Head
By: Brightech

Why I Like This

Another option for a modern, minimal design LED floor lamp is this one by Brightech. At 3,000 Lumens, the SKY LED Torchiere is very bright and should be adequate for lighting a bedroom or mid-sized living room. According to their site, this model is designed to last with LED bulbs that should go strong for about 20 years. You’ll save money and reduce waste.

Conserve Energy Power Switch
By: Belkin

Why I Like This

This is really useful!! The Belkin Conserve Power Switch provides a simple way to save energy and reduce utility costs. You may not know this, but electronic devices left plugged in when not in use can still draw power (a.k.a. ‘vampire power‘). This smart switch cuts power with the flip of a switch, which means there is no need to unplug cords from the wall every time you want to save energy.

According to their page, “In a typical American household, there are up to 40 devices drawing power when not in use at a given time. This can average up to $100 a year in unnecessary energy costs.”

Energy Efficient & Quiet Air Multiplier, Cooling Fan
By: Dyson

Why I Like This

Dyson is known for clean design principles and has done quite a bit with respect to energy efficiency innovations. This model is 35% quieter and relatively more energy efficient than the AM03 model. It’s a great piece of tech for keeping your room cool, without the unsightliness of conventional floor fans.

Energy Smart, Energy Efficient Ceramic Heater with Climate Control & Timer
By: Evesun

Why I Like This

A smart convention heater for your home to keep you warm in the winter (yes, everything is ‘smart’ nowadays). The Evesun smart convection heater detects body activity and regulates temperature within 2 meters (about 6 six feet), based on space occupation. So when people are near, it’ll turn on, and when people leave the detectable area, the heater will stop heating after 3 minutes. It’s also designed with automatic temperature settings for greater energy savings.

USB Rechargeable, Portable & Energy Efficient LED Desk Lamp with Flexible Gooseneck, 3-Level Brightness & Touch-Sensitive Control
By: TR-Life

Why I Like This

Had to include this little gadget! If you like to travel, or like to have a light at your work-space, I can’t imagine a more useful lamp than this one. It’s a super portable, energy efficient LED lamp that folds up into an easy-to-care shape for efficient transport. This lamp also comes with eye-care settings and multiple brightness options.

Smart, Energy Saving Surge Protector with Autoswitching Technology
By: Smart Strip

Why I Like This

We tend to forget just how helpful a good power strip can be — and, of course, this power strip is ‘smart’ as well. This surge protector comes with 7 outlets and is designed to automatically turn off power when a plug is not in use to help save energy. Unlike most power strips, the smart strip itself uses very little energy. It uses one watt of power when fully engaged and less than 1/4 of a watt when the automatically switched outlets are off. You’ll also notice that the strip itself is broken up into “Control”, “Always On”, and “Automatically Switched” outlets.
