Tip Thirty-One

November 29, 2011

Unplug your appliances.
Unplugging your appliances when you're not using them could help reduce your energy costs. Even when your appliances are plugged in and you're not using them, they are still draining electricity and costing you. Between 5 - 10% of residential electricity is used by devices that are plugged in 24 hours a day.1 To get in the habit of unplugging them when you're not using them, put reminders by your appliances. Soon it will be second nature and you could end up seeing significant reductions in your monthly electric bills.
