Control Your Lights With a Sensor

One of the first energy saving devices I installed in my town-home when we moved in last year was an occupancy sensor for my kitchen lights. The model was from Leviton and can be seen here. The concept is extremely simple. When my Wife or I enters the kitchen the light comes on. When we leave the kitchen the lights go off (after a minute or two).

Using a CFL in a Warm Climate

Each week I receive a number of comments or emails that strongly disagrees with something I have written. I have no issue with this at all. We live in a society of free speech and I really do encourage all reasoned opinion, no matter how different it may be. I find it a little upsetting when the comments posted say more about my character than what I have written, but I accept that this has become a common practice today!
