Will save a typical family of four over 100 Euro per year on water charges and even more on your energy bill when you take into account the costs of heating the water. Price €19.95
2: Blade Saver – A product which featured on the Dragons Den on RTE in 2014. It will re-sharpen your blunt razor blades used for shaving and help them last ten times longer. Typically will save someone that shaves regularly about 50 Euro per annum. Price €9.95

4: Outdoor Tap Lock – Another popular item with customers at present with the impending water charges to the forefront of the minds of many people. Fears definitely seem to exist about water theft and even children carelessly forgetting to turn off outdoor taps. Using a magnetic key (2 Keys come in pack) it fits the vast majority of taps without the need for padlock which tend to rust up and seize when used outdoors. Price €28.95
5: Firewood Moisture Meter – If your father has a stove or a wood burner he is sure to appreciate this product. It gives a reading of the moisture content of firewood. If it is more than 18% it is advised not to burn it as it is a waste of energy and can create creosote which is a major cause of many chimney fires. Price €29.95
6: Owl Energy Monitor – If your father likes gadgets and numbers this energy monitor will provide hours of entertainment. The sensor clips on to the over-wire at your energy meter. Check your latest energy bill to see what you are paying per KW (probably about 0.20 cent) and insert this information into the wireless monitor. Then you can get a live feed on the monitor on what you are spending per hour on energy in your home. Turn the kettle on and you will see it instantly shoot upwards. A great way to understand your spending better and to adjust behaviour patterns (like boiling the kettle four times before you get around to making a cuppa) and save money on energy bills. Price €43.95

11: Instant Electric Hot Water Tap: A very popular product with our customers particularly during the summer months when switching the heating on or turning on the immersion just to heat water is something you would rather not do.
