Check Out the Kill A Watt P4400 @ Your County Library to Save on Electricity

Largo, MD – The Prince George’s County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) now offers the Kill A Watt P4400 as a part of its circulating collection. The large LCD display counts electricity consumption by the kilowatt-hour, just like your local utility; therefore, you can calculate your electrical expenses by the day, week, month or year.

Since a fifth of our electric bills, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, come from items that are left plugged in when they are not in use, or items that are in standby mode, the Kill A Watt P4400 can monitor the energy eaters in our homes and cut down our electric bills at the same time. Connect your standard 115 VAC appliances (15 amps maximum) to the Kill A Watt monitoring device to determine their energy efficiency.

Is it time for a new refrigerator? Is that old air conditioner still saving you money? Kill A Watt can uncover power-wasting appliances that you can unplug so as to reduce your utility bills. This energy cost saving item joins our thermal mobile accessory -- FLIR ONE (for both Android and iOS) -- which adds infrared camera functionality to your mobile device to assess whether or not heat or cool air is escaping from your home, increasing utility cost. Go “green” at your library, and check out a Kill A Watt electricity usage monitor and a FLIR ONE thermal camera today.
