Becoming green is harder than many people think. Going green means that you strive to better your home and yourself for the environment. This includes using solar power, using other alternative energies, preserving water, and many other green techniques that will help us go green. Meters have become a popular tool in helping people who want to go green make sure that they are saving water and conserving energy when they can.

What Are Meters?

Meters are tools used to measure either water usage or energy consumption. Many people that are trying to go green and conserve water place water meters in their sinks and showers to see how much water is being used and how much water is being wasted. Electric meters can hook up to different things in your home, including a direct power source and can let you know how much energy you are wasting and how much you are conserving. These meters can help tell people where they are not conserving energy or water and let them know that they need to do more to conserve energy.

Where Can I Find Meters?

Depending on the type you want you may be able to find a meter at your local home improvement store. Many retail stores in your area may also carry the meter that you are looking for. To find out whether or not stores in your area carry these meters, you can give them a call or visit the store itself to see if they do carry these. If you cannot find a store that carries these meters you can go online and do a search for these meters. Many green companies have websites dedicated to the sale of meters and other green products.

Different Kinds of Meters

There are many different kinds of water meters as well as electrical meters. You might choose from a plain design to a more unique and broader design. Here are two different meters that you may find interesting.

  • Personal Water Reading. This unique tool is placed in any location that your water goes in. Including sinks, bathtubs and anywhere else you might have water coming from or going to. The digital display will tell you how many drops of water you have used in one day. This is a great way to determine if more needs to be done in your household to conserve water.
  • Flower Pod. This unique design allows for a neat decoration in your home that detects power usage. When the power is used too much in your home, the flower wilts, but when energy is being conserved the flower is brilliant. This is a great way for people to have great home décor while being able to detect their energy usage.

There are many different meters out there that can help you determine your energy usage and your water usage. Once you know those numbers you can determine how your energy and water usage is affecting the environment and you can start doing whatever you can to help lower those numbers. The lower you get your usage down the lower your energy bills will be and the lower your carbon footprint will be on the Earth.
