  1. Replacing inefficient appliances is a great idea, but let’s not forget that there are energy costs associated with producing and shipping a new appliance and disposing of an old appliance that still works.

  2. Excellent segment, Pablo. Easy to understand tips for everyday life. My questions is about the plugging appliances into a power strip. In the case of a computer, if you shut off a power surge strip, will it no longer protect your computer from power surges?

  3. Janice – something that isn’t plugged in (or plugged into a switched-off powerstrip) can’t possibly be affected by power surges because it’s not connected to anything ;-)
    I’ve always thought the “power surge” thng was something of a scam anyhow – how often does that really happen? Pablo?
