The new Siemens Z6.0 comes in two powerful and extremely efficient models, the Z6.0 Power and the Z6.0 Eco. Boasting the symbolic green power cord, these vacuums are setting the bar high in terms of environmental features and operating economy. Using lower wattage but delivering top performance, each energy saving vacuum offers a new dimension in floor care. Siemens Z6.0 cleaners combine the enhanced efficiency, offered by the Siemens compressor technology with a new aerodynamic system, designed to improve airflow within the cleaner. This results in up to 50% savings on electricity plus a significantly increased air throughput. And the new, green tagged air guidance system releases airflow blockages and prevents the air swirls that impair efficiency.
To match their advanced aerodynamic system, both models feature innovative and powerful motor fans that resemble an aircraft turbine. Due to their aerodynamically-shaped impellers that reach a top speed of 800 kph, these Siemens vacuum cleaners convey exceptionally high air volumes while minimizing energy consumption.

This new water heater from Gorenje Tiki is actually a heat pump which saves money and contributes to a cleaner environment. Mounted on the water storage tank, the heat pump represents the most energy efficient and cost effective way of water heating, drawing the heat from the ambient air and using extra energy source to heat the water up to 55°C. The Gorenje pump is equipped with a system for thermal disinfection in order to prevent bacterial growth, by extra heating the system in even intervals up to 65°C. At the same time, the pump can be used for cooling smaller rooms. Compared to oil heating or gas heating, the investment in heat pump pays off in few short years.
The upright floor water heat pump comes in 200, 300, 400 and 500 liter sizes. Gorenje Tiki also makes a compact version with heat pump and water tank built in one unit. Additional one or two tubular heat exchangers are available for combination with other energy sources, like central heating system, solar energy, etc.

While we normally do not write about something as mundane and often unattractive as a water heater, new GE hybrid water heater is certainly worth of noticing. This is the first ever water heater to be listed on U.S. Department of Energy website as Energy Star Rated. With its innovative approach, the hybrid water heater combines heat pump technology with traditional electric elements, pulling heat from surrounding air and transferring it to the tank. Such a process creates the same amount of hot water as a traditional water heater while reducing energy expenses up to 62% and having a rather dramatic impact on monthly utility bills and the environment. Your annual savings can reach $320.
Realizing that after air heating and cooling, home water heating is the largest in residential energy consumption, and while our homes have gotten generally more energy efficient, most Americans still have conventional water heaters that are barely more efficient than ones sold 20 years ago and the percentage of energy used to heat water has been growing, GE designed this hybrid water heater to take care of environment and your bank account.
The GE hybrid water heater features an easy-to-use electronic control system that offers both simplicity and flexibility, giving you all control you need. Set the thermostat and forget it or easily change the desired water temperature or operating mode to maximize energy efficiency.
