What would you do with the money you could save?

I read with interest the survey by the Energy Saving Trust, following their Energy Saving Week.

"People were asked, 'if you were to save hundreds of pounds on your fuel bills by implementing efficiency measures, what would you do with the savings?' Encouragingly, and potentially an indicator of the austere times we live in, half of us say we would save the money. Women seem slightly more inclined to save than men, but there is not a lot in it. And unsurprisingly, men are more interested in buying more gadgets."

It also went on to say that only 1 in 10 people were interested in the running cost of their electrical appliance, when the greater influence was the initial purchase cost. This could be false economy, as the running costs could be huge, to implement efficiency measures we must know the running costs of appliances. An A rated 22" LCD TV would typically cost £5 a year to run whereas an A rated 56" TV would cost £19 (even if it was in the sale at half price!) compared to more than £50 a year for an old TV. One of the first things we look at with a new car is its fuel efficiency so why should other large household purchases be any different?

One simple way to implement efficiency measures in the home is to fit a voltage optimisation device, the unit fits next to your fuse box and simply maintains voltage to a constant 220V. Here in the UK voltage can fluctuate, appliances can work across the EU range of voltage (207V to 253V) however many appliances will actually work more efficiently at the lower 220V that the device typically maintains – meaning greater efficiencies and potentially prolonging the life of your electrical equipment. The VPhase device costs £270 and will need fitting by a qualified electrician, it should keep working for the next 25 years or more with absolutely no running cost, and with savings of around 10% on electricity bills, it will soon be providing saved money to spend on more gadgets!
