5 appliances and smart home gadgets that’ll save you money in 2023 – TechRadar

You can’t escape the skyrocketing prices we‘re grappling with today. Almost everything, from your utility bills to that starter home, is costing more today than it did a year ago. To survive this era of inflation, you just have to save where you can, and upgrading some of your outdated, time- and energy-guzzling home gadgets is a big step in the right direction.

It probably isn’t a surprise that it is the best air fryers that dominate many of our energy-saving conversations. Even the local hairdressers and bakers have shared their praise for these time-saving kitchen beasts. We also have an eye out for deals on other appliances, like dehumidifiers and heated clothes airers, which can save your pocketbook in the long term.

When it comes to building a smart home, there are many ways to make your house more efficient. The best smart locks can notify you if a door has been left ajar, letting heat escape; and the best smart thermostats will activate the central heating when and where you want it.

Earlier this month, money-saving expert Martin Lewis revealed a simple equation that can help you cut your winter energy bills in the UK, which is something the rest of the world can utilize too. The math involves finding the wattage of an item, then working out how many kilowatts or what fraction of a kilowatt it’s using, then multiplying that by the cost of kw per hour. But since we can’t all run these calculations when we need to,  it may be simpler to elect an appliance or smart home gadget that you know will save you money in the long run.

We’ve already done the Lewis calculations so you don’t have to. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the key appliances and smart home gadgets that will help you save money on your utility bills.
