Good morning Brian. Where do we get started?

Brian Kelsey:
Good morning Jennifer, lets get started with heating and cooling our homes because that is a big, big thing we think about. A big cost and you know thinking about the environment so there's this cool new product from LG it's called the Art Cool Gallery and basically it's a picture frame 20 x 20 picture frame that you hang on your wall and cool air and hot air, depending on what you need comes out from behind it and it's really really amazing you can put what ever kinds of pictures you want in there as you can see here, but you don't have to run any duct work throughout your house. It's a spit system meaning that there's a unit that sits outside and that controls anywhere from 2 to 8 of these units. So you can have different zones in your house and you save so much money because with traditional HVAC units you loose like 30% of your energy through the duct work, you don't have any duct work with this it's direct so you don't lose any of that, and they're energy star rated as well so within all that you have a huge savings and it's really really easy and convenient and it looks like a picture frame you don't have that big ugly wall unit or a window air conditioner those are kind of an eye sore so really really cool. You can go to lghomecomfort.com for more information on that.

One of the other things I wanted to talk was fixtures you know, we really really need to think about saving water, it's on everyone's mind but one of the questions I get asked a lot is well I want to save water and I want to be eco friendly but I want it to look good as well and there weren't a whole lot of choices well Moen has a whole full line of eco performance kitchen and bathroom faucets as well as shower heads that save water without sacrificing performance I've got a couple here, this is the Walden pull out kitchen faucet it's Moen's spot resistant finish meaning that it really cleans up really really well and look at it it's beautiful and we also got the Winford eco performance shower head in a brushed nickel and again these products are just beautiful rock solid but more importantly they save water.

Jennifer Lewis-Hall:
