This summer season, as we all look forward to enjoying the great summer outings or out of the country vacations, we also expect energy bills to rise due to the intense summer heat. Whether you are using your aircon more often, using more water to take showers, or using more electricity to run fans to get a cool breeze, energy saving tips can help your pocket and the Earth. Here are some energy saving tips to help you through this hot summer:

Efficient operation

Have your aircon cleaned or replace filters monthly for more efficient operation. Dirty filters restrict airflow and can cause the system to run longer, increasing energy use.

Unplug appliances and electronics

Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use. Plug home electronics, such as TVs, DVD players and computers into the MEIJI 13 Series Extension Sets MES-1303 to 1306. It has an individual power switch that you can turn off when the equipment is not in use.


Ceiling Fan

  1. When it is not that hot, give your aircon a much needed break by using a ceiling fan.

MERRY CHRISTMASChristmas is here! With it are the rush and hustle of buying gifts, preparing for parties, cooking favorite dishes, and giving to others the blessing we have for this year requires much effort and sacrifice.

Time is an essential commodity

Time is an essential commodity especially in this busy season so owning a timer can greatly help individuals who are not usually at home or who would like to be in control of what’s going on at home.

Timers vary in shapes and sizes

Timers vary in shapes and sizes and for Meiji timer, upon the user’s preference, it can also be customized accordingly.  Having a timer can allow you to organize your schedule WITHOUT  having to compromise the tasks and things you need to attend to.  Scheduling the activities ahead of time so it could be programmed into your timer can also work to your advantage. For example: You would like the garage lights to be opened every 6:00 pm so you wouldn’t need to go home to a dark house after work.  Another example would be if you would like to relax into your  air conditioned room at 10:00pm every weekends. This can be arranged with your Meiji Timers!

Very useful for students and workers

Also, giving timers as gift can be greatly appreciated by the receiver since this can be very useful for Timer with Voltage Protetectorstudents, workers whether single or married alike.  This gift is low-maintenance unlike the other gadgets in the market  and inexpensive as well as handy because one can bring it anywhere even in faraway travels.

Timers can really help us celebrate the season

There are timers that operate on batteries while other ones may use wire type.  Some also opt to have them come with alarm systems and an individual can easily set it on his desired time and sleep to his heart’s content without worrying of waking up late for an engagement. There is no danger of it getting lost because almost anyone can afford to buy it.  Timers can really help us celebrate the season free of hassle because in the midst of preparation and whirlwind of activities, one is reminded of his priorities of what should be done first and when.  One thing that’s clear is the durability and being user-friendly of the gadget.  Even old folks can use timers without having to read the whole manual with complex technical terms.  One can just set it to his own satisfaction accordingly.  There are many brands that offer these kind of gadget so people must choose wisely depending upon the model and style they want for themselves or for somebody if it is given as a gift.

24-hour timerIf you’re looking for great deals, you may include this article in your list. Recently Meiji Electric has showcased one of the most interesting items in their product line. A new technology of Timers with Voltage Protection!

As we personally use this at home and it works perfectly, I felt it was only appropriate to write an article about it. My sister and I was looking for an aircon timer in a hardware store. Luckily, we were told about Meiji’s 24-Hour Timer. As we reviewed the item, we found out that it not only can be used for aircon, it also has 8 timer options, with your choice of days! My sister and I are currently maximizing these options in our room. Our setting was set in 8 ways of course:

Meiji’s 24-Hour Timer

On Mondays, since she has no work, turn on time is at 11pm and turn-off time at 12noon. For Tuesdays, turn on at 10pm and turn off at 5am. On Wednesdays, since we have Bible Study, turn on at 7pm and turn off at 5am. For Thursdays, we usually stay home, so the air condition is already on by 7pm and off at 5am. Friday is our night-outs with friends so its set to turn on at 1am and off at 10am. Saturdays and Sundays, we set it to be on from 1pm and then turn off at 4pm and then turn on again at 10pm and then off at 8am the next day.

So this was how ours was set. You may also use this with your flat screen TVs, sound system, water heaters/pump and more. As long as you comply with its load capacity at 4,400W, 20A, just plug and play!

But it doesn’t stop there. This item also has a built-in voltage protector to keep your appliances safe from the usual fluctuations in our country. No need to worry about resetting the items plugged-in as Meiji Timer with Voltage Protector will automatically turn-on as the voltage stabilizes to a power safe to use for your appliances.

Setting your Meiji Timer is a one time thing so once and for all, do away with the hassle of manually turning on and off an appliance whenever you wish to do so. No more manually turning on your aircon just to get more hours of sleep during the weekends! What are you waiting for? Try it now!
