Unplug appliances

Begin by simply unplugging the electronic devices that you would like to place a timer on. You can use it on a coffee maker, toaster, or pretty much anything you choose!

Set the intervals on the timer

Digital timers can be set in intervals so that you can choose how many hours it will run. Typically they are set in 12-hour cycles. If you plan to use the time in conjunction with a coffee maker, and you only use it from 7am-9am, set the intervals to create this time frame. This will ensure that your coffeemaker will only receive power during the on interval and the timer will prevent power being drawn to your device throughout the entire day.

Plug in your timer

Once you have set your intervals, plug your appliance into the timer and let the timer get to work! It will probably be a good idea to test the timer before you plug it in and leave it unattended. Try setting the timer so that it will come on in 1 minute from the time you plug it in and set it to turn off after five minutes! If your timer works as it is intended, then you are ready to set the times for your device and you will start saving money instantly!

There’s not much better than saving energy, except for saving money along with it! By installing digital timers to your electronics, it will help you to conserve energy by not having appliances running all day. Instead of your coffeemaker running for 22 hours, it will run for two hours and then be turned off! Get started using digital timers in your home and start reaping the rewards of saving money and conserving energy!
