Library of Extraordinary Things: Improve

In addition to lots of books about DIY, we have some tools to help around the home.

Cut down on wasteful spending with the help of a Thermal Leak Detector from Black and Decker.

Cut down on costs and find out what appliances are actually worth keeping plugged in. Simply connect appliances to a Kill A Watt, and it will assess how efficient they really are. An LCD display counts consumption by the Kilowatt-hour. Calculate your electrical expenses by the day, week, month, even an entire year. Also check the quality of your power by monitoring Voltage, Line Frequency, and Power Factor. You can see if it’s time for a new refrigerator or if that old air conditioner is still saving you money.
