Answer: A: Eco mode - is it really eco?
... A lot of these eco modes use passive ways to clean (clothes, dishes, etc) by lengthening the soaking bit in the program so the dirt has time to slowly get released, as opposed to the more intensive programs where this is done by more spinning, pumping, etc. On washing machines the temperature is us ...

Answer: A: EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... Thanks a lot for your answer @riktemmink! The utility bill usage is based on two readings I had to submit, so that should be accurate (see screenshots below). Also, no connected solar panels (the ones on our roof are owned by the housing association) or any other generating device. What I did noti ...

EnergyNote meter's readings 70% higher than utility meter, why?
... Just wondering if anyone else had this happening, it seems that the EnergyNote's clip-on meter gives consistently higher readings than the utility meter. Looking at my utility bill, in the months Jan-Mar we used 467kWh, but looking at the EnergyNote analysis page, the same period shows 810kWh used. ...

Answer: Re: Halogen spotlights should go
... Hey, Laser: mine are 350 Lumens and I actually even find them a bit too bright. Halan: they were less than £4 each, so with one kWh at around 15 pence you save the full price of the bulb after around 590 hours of use (1kW / 45W = 22.2; 400p / 15p = 26.6; 26.6 * 22.2 = 590.52h). So if you have the ...

Halogen spotlights should go
... I replaced my halogen spotlights as soon as we moved in and everyone else should too. In a row of four, one halogen bulb consumed 50W, while an LED one with a similar lumen rating (amount of light emitted) is using 4.5W each. That's a staggering 200W to 18W switch without any less light at a cost o ...
