Win It Wednesday

Share

Just a couple of days till Christmas, can you believe it? It was an exciting last day of school for my kids and is cloudy and very "wintery" looking outside as we speak. Speaking of weather, we had to get a new a/c unit/heat pump last year so we tried to get an "eco-friendly" version. This summer we couldn't tell much of a difference, but this Winter we can see a big drop in the bill. YAY! I'm pleased to giveaway a tool that will tell you what devices cost you to run! Plug it in to your fan, or computer or anything, and see what it costs to run that each day/month/year. The Kill A Watt EZ electricity monitor retails for $60 and I am giving away one today! If you want to learn about geoexchange, geothermal heat, then Geothermal Genius is the place to go!

I would love to have this. I am afraid to see how much electricity some of my things are using.

Pick me, Pick me! I have been talking with our electric company about our recent bills trying to figure out why ours is so, so much higher than anyone else in our neighborhood. I am forever turning things off to save money. Please, please pick me so I can figure this out and prove to my family that leaving the lights on makes a difference! TheNordys@hotmail.com

lesley said...

Please pick me! I have been trying to explain to my family that leaving a light on or turning something on and leaving costs money. Presently, I am in talks with our electric company about our bill as it is twice the cost of our neighbors and I want to figure out why! This device would rock!

Would love to win, our electricity bill is outrages. This device would be an awesome win!

I went to the site and it's fascinating! I learned that the underground temp below the frost line is constant 55 degrees! Who knew?! Not me! This is seriously so cool!

Debra "Deb" Dresden Disney-Dior said...

Oooh, this would be a great device to have, since I live in the Sonoran desert and the AC runs 10 months out of the year. I would LOVE to see this in action!

Karen said...

I've always wanted to use one of these to test things around our house. Especially the old spare fridge we have out in the garage. I'd hate to have to get rid of it but I am sure it is a massive energy guzzler. It would be good to see the numbers so we could finally decide if it should get the heave ho.

I'd love to try this product out. I'm sure it would be an eye opening experience.

I'm getting very energy conservative. Our electric company now charges twice the rate in summer and in winter, than in the spring and fall. I have all the appliances on surge plugs, that get shut off when not in use. Would love to win. Please enter me, thank you

interesting info, love to try it

I learned that the ground below the frost line is a constant 55 degrees year round. When it's 5 degrees outside it's 55 degrees under the surface, when its 95 degrees outside its 55 degrees below the surface. Ground Source Heat Pumps take advantage of this temperature difference to heat and cool.

I learned what the " Many animals hibernate a few feet below the ground for a reason; it's warmer there. Believe it or not the ground below the frost line is a constant 55 degrees year round. When it's 5 degrees outside it's 55 degrees under the surface, when its 95 degrees outside its 55 degrees below the surface.

THis sounds useful and greenish. Could be a real eye-opener.

I would love to find out which appliances are draining all the electricity.

Roy F. said...

I learned that while the most efficient gas furnace has a 94% efficiency rating, geothermal beats it with a 400% efficiency rating.

I would love to have this, my electric bill has been extremely high lately. nickbug2000@gmail.com

Yoga Mommy said...

I am a new mom and bought some new appliances and really want to see how much they are costing me. Such as the electric fireplace (and I am curious about the Christmas Tree) and photo printer (which I won) and the baby's swing etc. If I can save money by being cautious as to how much I use these items. I can enjoy them more.

I learned that Geothermal Heating is designed using Loop Fields and there are different kinds for different types of land.
A geothermal heat pump system consists of two primary components, a heat pump and a loop field. The heat pump is the unit that is placed inside your home and is responsible for the heat exchange. The loop field is the system of piping that is laid underground in your yard. Loop fields vary based on the climate, the size of the home, and the homes locations. Loop fields can be installed horizontally or vertically and also in an open or closed loop. So what’s the difference?

What a great and unique giveaway! This will help us save $ !!!

tdean30 said...

We use electric heaters in the winter. Would be interesting to see if anything puts out more than them.

Installing a geothermal system in a typical home is equal to planting an acre of trees, or taking two cars off the road in greenhouse gas reduction.

"Drilling conditions are generally not bad, although some places may be more difficult due to hard shale or rock" This is for my state. I would love to see what how much it would cost. I'm afraid they would have to dynamite a lot in our backyard, but it still might be worth it.

Our electricity bill really isn't too bad compared to everyone else we know. Of course, we have a couple of window A/C units we run in summer and we have space heaters and a honkin' big gas furnace with no blower for heat in winter. We are going to try to get HVAC installed soon, and we expect the power bill to go up. It would be really good to know what everything else is costing us so we can try to be more efficient and keep the bill from jumping up too much.

melinda said...

Thi item would be very interesting .

Leslie S. said...

I learned that there is no combustion in a geothermal heat pump; therefore there is no chance of carbon-monoxide poisoning. By adding high efficiency air cleaners with geothermal, a high indoor air quality level can be reached.Thanks!

What a fun "toy" the Kill A Watt would be to play with. I'm sure I could learn alot and teach my son about energy and energy usage... I've always been curious how much energy things like a microwave, coffee maker, and some of my lamps actually use. Thanks for the giveaway!

see above said...

Hmmm, according to geothermalgenius.org, my zip code lies in Croatia and I can save about $200 in energy coses per month... which is interesting since I usually pay aroudn $180. Still, I'm pretty sure my next house will be geothermal as long as the government and energy co. kickbacks are still in place.

I would love the chance to win this!! We work so hard at lowering our electric bill. $350 per month on a single income for a family is just too much for an electric bill.

I learned that you can claim a tax credit of 30% of the entire operating system.

Geothermal systems are usually good for 15+ years. A typical furnace will last 7-10 years with regular maintenance. The ground loop of the geothermal system (the pipes buried in your yard) has a warranty of 50 years. The ground loop is made up of polypropylene pipe, the same pipe which is used in city gas lines.

With a three hundred dollar electric bill, I would love to have this gadget...We can use all the help we can get.

I love the idea of Geothermal genius! Unfortunately, I learned that my state is not yet linked in. I am going to have to fix that...
