Tis the season for all things scary but nothing is as spooky as the energy vampires lurking in your home! That’s right! Energy vampires or phantom loads are terms that describe appliances and electronics that are left plugged-in even when they are not in use. These items literally drain electricity all-day, every-day. In fact, most Americans have at least 20 energy vampires sucking up electricity in their home right now! On average, energy vampires cost U.S. households upwards of $100 extra on their electric bills in a year. Awareness and conservation are key to making an impact on both your electric bill and your carbon footprint! Tackling these little monsters is as simple as unplugging things such as phone chargers, coffeemakers, and toasters when they are not being used. While it is important to unplug unused appliances and electronics while you are away for extended periods of time like vacation, it is equally important to do it on a daily basis before you leave for work or school.
