The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Prepaid Gas And Electricity

Prepayment meters have become very popular today and many people are now using them for their electricity and gas. This is a plan that means consumers pay for energy before they actually use it. It functions the same way prepaid mobile phone services work so when you run out of credit you need to top up otherwise your gas or electricity supply is switched off.

Different energy companies offer different type of prepayment meters with the key meters being one of the options that you have. These are meters that come with keys that are electronically coded specifically for your meter and has your tariff information. There are also smart card meters, which work by downloading energy usage information and sending it to your supplier when you top up. Token meters are the third type of prepayment meters even though they are slowly dying out in some areas. Some use cards while others make it possible for you to buy tokens directly from your mobile wallet to continue enjoying the energy.

The advantages

· Prepaid gas and electricity comes with the advantage of managing your energy consumption. When you pay for energy you can afford at that particular moment, you are able to limit your usage so that it lasts for the period you want.

· The meters make it possible for you to tell when you are misusing your energy, hence you can easily come up with measures that cut on your consumption. They make it even easier for homeowners to tell how energy efficient new and existing appliances are so they can make any necessary changes.

· The prepaid option saves you from unexpected high bills. This is because you only use what you have paid for and you therefore do not have to worry about the bills at the end of the month.

· They save you from estimates that can end up overcharging you. This is because the prepayment meters do not require any meter reading for you to be billed.

· You can still take advantage of tariff rates if you have a compatible prepayment meter. It simply means you can determine your prices depending on when you decide to use your electricity.

The disadvantages

· Most of the prepayment meters are single rate, meaning that you pay the same for electricity and gas regardless of what time you use it. It is a plan that can therefore be more expensive in terms of energy supply.

· The meters can sometimes be inconveniencing because you need to be keen and have credit at all times to avoid disconnection when you least expect. This means that you need to have everything in order even when you are sick to avoid disconnection.

The advantages of prepayment meters outweigh the disadvantages and it might be a good idea to consider having them installed. Some energy companies are now phasing out the old meters and embracing the prepayment meters and you can easily make a switch if you feel they are the best option for your energy needs around the home.

Advantages Of West Facing House Plans

Image result for house plans

West facing house plans are ideal for people who like enjoying the setting sun. If you are wondering what a west facing house is, this is a house that is located on a plot with a road on the west side. One of the main advantages of the design is that it allows you to enjoy the warm evening sun. It’s believed that houses that face west bring more wealth and prosperity and the owners of these houses don’t have enemies.

In addition to people living in west facing houses being prosperous in life, they are also said to be extroverts and are loved by many people. They also make friends easily which helps them in their businesses and careers.

How to Design a West Facing House

As an architect you need to consider a number of factors when designing a west facing house. For ideal results you should avoid planning the house to be built on a T-shaped plot. This is because a house constructed on such a plot doesn’t look elegant. According to Vastu, a house built on a T-shaped plot diverts the positive energy in the house causing conflict in couples.

For the owner of the house to enjoy the benefits that come with this design, it’s recommended that you design the house such that the master bedroom is located on the south-west side. Vastu also recommends that the master bedroom should be located on the south-west side as the direction promotes better understanding among partners. You should build the children bedroom on the west side of the house while the guest room should be in the North West direction.

To ensure that enough sunlight gets into your house, you should eliminate any clutter that might be in the western side. You should also ensure that all tall trees are in the backside.

You should ensure that there’s less open space at the front of a west facing plot. When designing the house you should ensure that the main gate is located at the mid-west or northern half of the plot.

Experts recommend that the eastern and northern directions of the plot are the best for water storage; therefore, these are the best places to place the water storage tank.


As mentioned before, a west facing house is ideal for people who like enjoying the evening sun. While the evening sun is great to look it, it can sometimes be annoying especially when it slips into your house making it hard for you to watch television or work on your computer. To prevent this you should install blinds on your doors and windows.

One of the most effective products we have found in the fight for bed bug control is Transport GHP, or General Household Pest. This product is made by FMC Corporation.

  • Active ingredients include Acetamiprid and Bifenthrin. This allows us to quickly eliminate any existing colonies of bed bugs in your home, often within as little as 24 hours, and to control their population for up to 90 days.
  • In addition to bed bugs, Transport GHP also helps protect your home from ants, beetles, cockroaches, chiggers, earwigs, fleas and more than 30 other species of household pests.
  • Our pest control technician will carefully apply Transport GHP inside and to the outside surfaces of your home including the exterior siding, foundation, porch, window frame, eaves, patio, garage, storage shed, and other areas where these annoying insects may be hiding.
