Have you ever received a really high power bill and thought what the …! We did and I took drastic measures to reduce our monthly and daily power usage to save money and costs. I started researching all the ways I could start saving immediately without having to spend any money on energy efficient lightbulbs, etc. I went ahead and did the research for you to start saving as fast as today if you read on and do these simple tips. Let’s pull the plug to save!
Electronics and appliances (especially those with digital displays) continue to draw power when they are plugged in. This is also referred to as a phantom load or vampire power. Things like cell phone chargers and rechargeable batteries won’t stop drawing power as long as they are plugged in.
If you’re like me and you need statistics, numbers and data to be convinced then maybe these facts will help you reach for that power cord and unplug.
I hope that this post gives you the encouragement to unplug and save a few dollars for yourself! Walk around your house and see how many things you can unplug out of the walls. How many habits can you and your family change to save power?
