Users take inventory of the devices/appliances they currently have .

Depending on how efficient the appliance is compared to other products , a different appliance may be suggested to the user that can help cut down user costs . The amount of savings a user could benefit by replacing the item is then displayed.

Information transparency is key to this app . Being aware of the
