Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 10, this year. While you may be tempted to send the special women in your life a virtual gift card this Mother’s Day – which is an excellent way to help support local businesses – what would brighten her day are gifts designed to conserve energy.
The need for energy-saving products is more significant than ever before as more people are working and studying from home during these challenging times. You could also add to the present by sending her a gift certificate to a restaurant, small business, or electrical contractor that she can redeem later.
LED Light Bulbs
LED lights bulbs are a great gift that can save mom about 75 percent a year on lighting costs. Not only do ENERGY STAR certified bulbs use less energy than traditional, incandescent bulbs, but their life expectancy is also rated in years rather than weeks or months. LEDs are widely available in various shades and as dimmable bulbs. If your mom has a smart home or has been hinting at creating one, you can also give her the gift of a Wi-Fi-connected LED starter kit.
The summers in Conroe, Texas, are hot. Your mom’s electric bill may increase when she turns on the air conditioner. Help her save by giving her a learning thermostat. These thermostats are designed to learn her cooling habits and, within a short amount of time, automatically adjust the home’s temperature in response to her comings and goings. Plus, she can monitor and control the temperature even when she’s away, just by using the compatible smartphone app.
You may not be able to treat the special women in your life to dinner, but you can help them conveniently cook healthy dinners at home each night of the week with an Instant Pot. These appliances are particularly ideal for busy moms and, because they eliminate the need to use the oven or stovetop, may save energy. There is a wide range of models on the market today, including smart Wi-Fi machines and those with air frying features. For the mom who already has one of these multi-cookers, you can purchase an air fryer lid. You can even find fun decals for them online.
