How To: Stop Wasting Electricity
and Lower Your Energy Bill
If you’re serious about energy efficiency, this may be something to look into as it can add up to about a quarter of your energy bill.Devices that continually draw power include but are not limited to:
- Phone, laptop, and other chargers, even when not plugged into a device
- TVs, stereos, and laptops when in standby mode
- Cable boxes and modems
- Washing machines
- Air purifiers
- Coffee makers
How do you get around this? Power strips are the easiest solution as you can keep devices plugged in, while ensuring they are not drawing power when the strip is off.
If you’re not sure about whether a particular device continually sucks power or not, you can use a device called an energy meter to measure this.
