The Home Depot Gift Card Collection

Home Depot  Home Depot is now carrying LED light bulbs at reasonable prices. While they may seem expensive compared to CFL's, they generate almost no heat. This makes them a good choice for rooms that always seem too warm in the summer. A lot of that heat may be coming from light bulbs, and the AC may not be able to regulate the temperature properly in every single room. Extremely cool light bulbs can give you an edge to keep a room comfortable. One of the better values is the EcoSmart 40 watt equivalent. If you've followed LED bulb pricing, this type of bulb was about $40 just a year or 2 ago. Now they are about $10.

One of the best investments under $20 you may ever make is a good low flow shower head. Shower heads from Niagara Conservation have consistently been highly regarded by the likes of Family Circle and Good Housekeeping. They deliver a good stream at around 1.5 gallons per minute. Older shower heads use as much as 5 GPM. The manufacturer says your savings can run around $91 each year in water and energy costs. You can also save 10's of thousands of gallons of water.

  Dual flush toilets can use either 1.6 gallons per flush, or save even more water by using just .9 gpf. A switch on top of the toilet quickly selects either option.

 

HUVCO tubular skylight

Many people enjoy the natural sunlight from tubular skylights. Sunlight is brought into the living area through a highly reflective mirror-like pipe.
