Slay energy vampires in your home

Slay energy vampires in your home

October 13, 2021 – It may be the spookiest time of year, but did you know that energy vampires lurk in your home year-round? 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 drain electricity around the clock! On average, Americans have more than 20 energy vampires sucking up electricity in their home right now which is estimated to add nearly $100 to their electric bills in just one year. Awareness and conservation are key to making an impact on your electric usage. Ridding your home of energy vampires is as easy as unplugging things such as phone chargers, coffeemakers, and toasters when they are not being used. Whether you are leaving for your work day or taking an extended vacation, it is essential to unplug unused appliances and electronics. For more tips on conserving electricity, visit
