It’s that time of the month again; the dreaded energy bill has arrived right on time. As usual, it is still a little more than you think it should be and you are scratching your head, trying to figure out what else you can possibly do to lower it any more.
As per a recent blog post by Stream Energy, the answer could be a pretty simple one. Look around your home and take inventory of all of your appliances and electronic gadgets, Do you realize that even when turned off, those gadgets still draws electric when plugged in (Facebook)? It is a classic misconception that if they are turned off, those devices do not still use any energy.
The truth of the matter is that every single gadget can cost up to $1 a month on your electric bill. Now, that doe does not seem like much money but if you think about it, an entertainment system can rack up as much as $130 each year, even if it is turned off. Now think about the kitchen appliances and other gadgets zapping energy, it can add up. An additional 5 gadgets can run upwards of $100 and adding that to to the $130 from the entertainment system, you’re looking at over $200 each year that you could be spending.
The good news is that this issue can be remedied pretty easily. Simply use power strips to plug all of your electric gadgets into and just shut down the power strips when items are no longer in use. Additionally, you can unplug any of your devices that are not in use and that will also do the trick!
