Did you know that appliances and electronics we plug in and forget about, like televisions, computers and telephone chargers, are sucking electricity and money from you even when you are not using them?
It's scary...consumers spend nearly $4 billion a year on electricity for appliances and electronics that are off or in the standby mode! That's more than $200 per year for an average family.
You don't need garlic and a stake to kill energy vampires, just remember to ...
- Unplug personal computers, monitors, copiers, printers and fax machines when not in use
- Unplug the telephone charger after it charges
- Unplugging VCRs, televisions, stereos and kitchen appliances when not in use
- Use motion activated lights instead of keeping the porch light on all night
