Be gone energy vampires!

October 26, 2023 – Halloween is a spooktacular time to address the energy vampires (a.k.a. phantom loads) lurking in your home. Energy vampires or phantom loads are terms that describe appliances and electronics that are left plugged-in when not in use. These energy enemies drain electricity 24/7/365. On average, Americans have more than 20 energy vampires sucking up electricity in their home right now. This equates to nearly $100 extra on an average electric bill in just one year! Slaying these energy vampires doesn’t include a wooden stake or garlic. It is as simple as unplugging things such as phone chargers, coffeemakers, and toasters when they are not being used. It is just as important to unplug appliances and electronics while you are away for extended periods of time like vacation as it is to unplug these items on a daily basis before you leave for work or school. An easy option for combatting larger energy vampires such as televisions and computers is to use surge protector power strips which can easily be powered off and on with quick flip.
