Don't let Energy Vampires drain your bank account!
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.
These habits can drain you dry. You don't need garlic and a stake to kill energy vampires, just...
- Unplug the computer when you're not using it
- Unplug the telephone charger after it charges
- Use motion activated lights instead of keeping the porch light on all night
