Electricity Saver Boxes


Do Electricity Saving Boxes 
Really Work?

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.
