How to Defeat Energy Vampires

October 24, 2014 | Blog

It’s almost Halloween! One week from today, little ghouls, goblins and vampires will come knock-knock-knocking on the door.

But Halloween isn’t unique when it comes to being on the lookout for vampires. We’re not talking True Blood or Twilight. We’re talking about energy vampires. They’re in your home right now. They’re sucking energy out of your home. And they’re sucking money from your bank account.

If we have your attention, let Lee’s Air explain a few of the most common energy vampires and how you can defeat them without a stake to the heart.

Common Energy Vampires

  • Television sets
  • Cell phone chargers
  • Lamps and lights
  • Playstations or Xboxes
  • Cell phone chargers
  • Microwaves

You may have already figured out what an energy vampire does by looking at that list. These are appliances or electronics that stay plugged in constantly – even when they’re not being used. This means they continue to pull in energy 24 hours a day and seven days a week. And that costs you money – about $100 a year, according to Energy Star.

So what can you do? It’s pretty simple to defeat energy vampires. Just buy an energy strip with an on/off switch. Plug your energy vampires into the energy strip, and turn it off when those things aren’t in use. If you do that, you don’t have to worry about plugging things in and unplugging them constantly.

Have a great Halloween!
