P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor

Updated on January 24, 2012

I was going through my electric bills the other day and noticed it was about 50 dollars more then usual. I was shocked here I was trying to maintain a greener home and save on my energy cost yet for some reason it has gone up. I called the power company, and as usual they could do nothing about it. So, I decided to research and see if I could find anything to help me understand where my kilowatt hours were being spent. I came across the P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor which does exactly what I need.

I wanted to find out what appliances in my home were causing the kilowatt usage hours to rise so dramatically. So, using the P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor I hooked it up to one device at a time. I hooked up the usage meter to the fridge, microwave, lamps, electronics, and anything else that was plugged into a wall outlet. To my surprise I found several items like my coffee maker, toaster oven, my son’s game console among others were taking a lot of power. I realized these things are not being used all the time and the best way to utilize some savings were to disconnect them.

The P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor is extremely easy to read and tells me exactly how much power it is taking. After using the P3 p4400, I was able to calculate within a plus or minus 5 kilowatt hours how much electricity was being used in my home. Simply by using this small device and identifying where the power consumption was I dramatically lowered my energy cost. I went from a 350 dollar bill to a 150 dollar bill in just one month I could not believe it. Most of power was being used by things that are plugged in all day yet have no real value or usage every day. So, simply by unplugging I saved a ton of money. It also helped me by allowing me to find out how much my stove and fridge were using so I could save even more to upgrade them, as well. The Kill A Watt also calculates voltage, line frequency, current, and power factor. You can calculate your electric bill before you even receive it from the electric company.

The P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor is an extremely handy device it even lets me identify line voltage, line frequency, which helps me to determine if a problem in the line is causing the extra usage. In that case, I can call, and complain about “dirty energy” to the power company and they can clean it up. It also helped me identify quickly and easily whether or not the outlets were actually working. This saved me the frustration of figuring out if the device I plugged in was the cause. So, I just replaced the necessary outlets.

So saving me a ton of money and time the low cost P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor was well worth the price. See how much energy you can be saving and get yours today.
