By using electric shavers, electric stoves and electric stools, some American Jews have started to transform the home of their dreams.
For a start, the tools can save money, as they can be purchased online and are less expensive than in-house electric equipment.
Electric shavers are popular among the young, especially in urban areas where there is a lack of electric heaters.
The tools can be used in the kitchen and are great for preparing meals.
“They save money,” said Shira Einav, a New York-based realtor who helps people buy electric shavings.
Some people have also found them practical for using with their children and pets, she added.
Einav said electric shaves also are a great way to prevent infections, which have soared in America in recent years.
I had a child who had polio for 10 years and we used his electric shaving.
It saved him from a life-threatening disease.
– Aida Shai, Brooklyn, New York, USAAccording to Shai and her colleagues, the technology is more than a hobby.
It’s part of an attempt to cut down on pollution in cities where the electric utilities have been shutting down the cooling systems.
A study in 2010 found that the use of electric shavens and electric smokers saved about $1,200 per household.
Many American Jews are also turning to solar heaters, which can be installed in homes and have an output of up to 1,000 watts, said Avital Ben-Levi, an Israeli researcher at Tel Aviv University.
Ben-Levy said Israelis are looking to install more solar heat at home.
He added that some Israelis have begun using electric appliances that are not covered by the heating laws.
Shai said people in her New York City neighborhood have used electric shoves in their homes to heat their dining rooms and other spaces.
She said the technology has been used in many other places, including India, Turkey, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
In India, electric shoving is common, especially among the poor, and many residents are using electric blankets, electric water heaters and electric blankets to cool their homes, said Nanda Nandi, an official in the Indian Electricity Regulatory Authority, which regulates the country’s power market.
Nandi said the utility has introduced measures to reduce pollution, including installing more electric heat pumps and solar panels.
Israel has also introduced regulations to limit the use and production of new solar energy plants, which it says are inefficient and pollute the environment.
But Ben-Israel said that the country is facing a serious crisis with the spread of heat-trapping substances, including lead, mercury and cadmium, in the environment, and has not been able to curb the emissions.
Ben-Israel told Al Jazeera that he has had some success installing solar heat in his home.
The electric shave is the cheapest solution to protect the environment and his children’s health, he said.
But, he added, it is important to use common sense.
We must remember that if you don’t buy something, it’s not going to be that great for you,” he said, pointing to a recent study in which researchers found that electricity use by Israeli households rose nearly 20 percent in the first three months of this year.
Al Jazeera’s Amira Hass, reporting from Tel Aviv, said Israeli households use about 2,000 solar heat pumps per year, which are more than any other country.
This is because they are connected to the grid, Hass said, adding that the government has set a goal of reducing power consumption by half by 2030.
