Do Electricity Saving Boxes
You must have seen the adverts about these energy saving boxes, or maybe you have seen the boxes in a friends house.
The adverts usually claim that these electricity saving boxes, costing around €20 - €30 or thereabouts, can preserve your appliances from damage and cut your electricity bills by 10% or more.
So how can a little plug-in box do all of that?? The answer is - it cannot in any realistic sense save you money on your electricity bill.
Can these little boxes prevent your washing machine burning out in a "brown-out"? IMHO no way possible. Can the boxes prevent damage in large energy surges? I don't think so!!
If you are offered one of these little "Miracle Boxes", I would say save your €20 and put it towards your energy bill - that way you will experience REAL savings!!
How do you really get genuine energy saving?? I will write a post on some related ideas soon.
