New SEE The Light Home Energy Toolkit by Kilojolts Consulting Group helps homeowners save money by bundling ten conservation tools with handy room-by-room tips.

Ever wish you had a friend in the energy conservation business? Someone to show you how to stop energy waste from flying out the window (and everywhere else) in your home and lower your utility bills by up to 16%? Energy consultant Gary Markowitz, founder of Kilojolts Consulting Group, is your new best friend. He’s bundled 10 simple tools, one how-to Workbook, and 30+ years of energy conservation experience into a single, well-designed package called the SEE The Light Home Energy Toolkit. Packed with easy-to-understand advice and indispensable conservation tools, the Toolkit is the perfect gift for new homeowners or renters, or anyone looking to jumpstart a home efficiency project.

Launched after such positive response to the consulting firm’s popular SEE The Light product suite for commercial, industrial, and municipal sectors, the new residential Toolkit is a $99 home energy efficiency “starter kit” with room-by-room tips and tools for cutting your electric, water and heating bills by an average of 16 percent. The $99 retail price (plus tax and shipping) could yield a potential $350[1] in utility bill savings utilizing all the tools in the kit; implementing the workbook’s tips will multiply the savings year after year.

Markowitz developed the Home Energy Toolkit in response to commercial clients’ requests for a “toolbox” of his favorite tips and energy conservation products to use for employee incentives or rewards for adopting energy-smart behaviors. “Clients were going to big box stores and standing there for hours figuring out which light bulb or shower head to give away as gifts,” recalls Markowitz. “With thousands of home energy efficiency products to choose from, our clients were stumped.” Markowitz tapped into his expertise and relationships with energy product manufacturers and retailers to create this “dream team” energy conservation tool for the home. “We tested top brands for simplicity and reliability, and selected 10 products every home owner or renter needs."

The Home Energy Toolkit includes the indispensible Kill-A-Watt Appliance Efficiency Monitor, an LED light bulb, weather sealing tape, outlet and switch sealers, a magnetic thermometer, a faucet aerator, a “shower coach” and a low-flow showerhead, and handy “Turn It Off” reminder stickers and notepads. Toolkits can be customized with corporate logos for employee recognition gifts, utility customer incentives, tenant welcome gifts and residential real estate thank you gifts.
