KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – You know what they say, it takes money to make money or in some cases to save it.
Sometimes, spending a little cash on the right product can save you even more money in the long run. WATE 6 On Your Side Consumer Reporter Don Dare shows you some products that will help you cut costs.
Fleece Throw Blanket
On cold nights turn down the thermostat and save on electric bills with a soft, machine-washable heated fleece throw blanket made by several manufacturers.
Some cost $25 and feature three heat settings for consistent heat distribution and a three-hour automatic shut-off for peace of mind.
With a low-flow showerhead, you can save up to 30% more on water and energy.
Many of the low-flow showerheads are maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant.
The better quality ones come with patented pressure-compensating technology for a strong, consistent flow rate, no matter what the available water pressure is.
LED Light Bulbs
You can cut down on electricity and you monthly bill by replacing standard 60-watt incandescent bulbs with efficient soft white LED light bulbs.
Each bulb has a total lifespan of up to 11,000 hours and are sold by the pack.
