The hype around pollution has become so much these days that people are beginning to understand how important clean air is, in order to survive. And in most cases, this issue of falling sick to pollutants (especially in your home) can merely be avoided by changing all the residential air filter types that might be used for your air conditioner, heater and yes, this extends to even drinking pure water as well in the form of a water filter.

Although, even though you know how and when to change these types of filters, one question that might intrigue you is the fact that certain brands of filters such as 3M Filtrate might not necessarily be available, and would require you to do a bit of legwork in order to get what you want.

However, one place which might have all the brands and types of filters that you might need for your home is over the internet at specific sites that not only offer these products at nominal costs but also don’t require for you to do much other than knowing what you want.

And so if you have been noticing that you need to change any of the filters, including the water and heater filter, you can be sure that you will find them at these sites that have been online for some time now, thanks to their resourcefulness.

Why The Fan Coil Unit is Phased Out

When one thinks of the conventional HVAC system, perhaps the simplest device that has been used for sometime is the fan coil unit. Of course, this device has been in use to keep work space cool and especially in cases where heat tends to get generated in large amounts, and can cause damage to equipment if this isn’t taken care of.

However, these systems are gradually being replaced by more advanced systems such as portable air conditioners that not only are able to provide additional air conditioning along with the stationary air conditioning units that are already present.

Of course, these portable units don’t need too much space and can literally fit in anywhere in places where there is a stronger need for more air conditioning. But this is not all that these portable units are capable of doing. Another vital function that most of these units can perform these days is the process of dehumidification which entails being able to dry wet areas in which these coolers are placed as well.

So if you think that your organization could make use of these kinds of units that will lead to greater productivity as well as prevent damage to costly equipment such as servers and so on and so forth, you can look for information over the internet at specific sites that offer these products at nominal prices.

February 14, 2011 by · Comments Off on Three Excellent Water and Light-Saving Gadgets 

Going green is anything but a fad as this way of living with renewed respect for our environment is seeping into the hearts and minds of people everywhere while also allowing companies to benefit from creating new products and services for customers everywhere. The overall benefits from going green results in one being able to save money, improve their health and most of all, save energy that can be used for later generations in the coming years.

And the place where we can begin doing this is in our homes, so here are three gadgets that are under $ 50 and can save you a lot of energy (read: money) at home:

Gadget #1: Philips EnduraLED

Known to last 25 times more than a normal lightbulb, and is far more efficient in terms of energy compared to the latter, it costs about $ 39.95 and according to experts is definitely worth the cost. The 12.5 watt version of this bulb is enough to light a house up much like the 60-watt build that you might be using.

Gadget #2: Occupancy Sensor Light Switches

Almost 60 % of lighting costs go to rooms that are not occupied by anyone, and while this can drive some people nuts, using this device which is equipped with a motion sensor will ensure that the light is turned off when one leaves the room.

Gadget #3: Bricor & Caroma high-efficiency/ performance shower heads

While conventional showerheads use about 2.5 gallons of water per minute, two efficient showerhead devices such as the Bricor Bravo and Caroma Flow can save almost ten gallons of water in ten minutes of using the shower. One can only imagine how much an entire family can save in a year!

Living in Hawaii

Living in Hawaii is a dream that can become a reality for you! Who wouldn’t want to live in Hawaii and have a life filled with beautiful weather, wonderful people and weekends spent lounging on the beach? While Hawaii is a tourist destination for people throughout the United States and Asia, it’s also a great place to live and work. It is home to many large corporations, who are always looking for talented employees willing to relocate off the mainland and into Hawaii.

If you have dreamt about living in Hawaii, now is a great time to make the move. Real estate is at its lowest prices in decades, meaning that it’s more affordable than ever to purchase a home or condo on one of Hawaii’s popular islands. In fact, some people are even making a living out of purchasing property in Hawaii and selling it at a significant profit.

The reason that many people can do this is because there are many homes and condo in Hawaii which have gone into foreclosure in the past few years. These bank-owned homes can be purchased from a lender at a fraction of their value because of this reason. In many cases, these homes have not been lived in for some time and are in need of repairs before they can be lived in again. However, a person willing to put in the time and effort to refurbish these homes can fix them up and sell them for a nice profit.

So why not take a chance on your Hawaiian dream? There are plenty of cheap apartments to live in while you start refurbishing and selling the bargain homes you have bought. It’s a good idea to do the work yourself so you can be assured of its quality and save money. That means that now is the right time to move to Hawaii and start flipping those homes.
