We have to ensure that our homes and offices are as energy efficient as possible in reducing waste of energy. With the rising increase of energy cost, it is important that we focus on energy efficiency to make sure that we benefit as much we can from energy we use.
Make small changes to everyday behaviour.
Stu is right.
Everything we own, including clocks, tvs, alarm systems, gdos, doorbells, washer/dryer, microwave, induction cooktops, water heater, etc. use power even when "off". We can unplug a lot of stuff, but face it, there are some items that It just doesn't make sense to disconnect. I live in a modern all electric home, and my power use between 12 midnight and 8AM is roughly 350 watts. 70 of that is my pair of Magnum inverters. The rest is phantom loads. At this level, I feel quite proud of myself, at getting it this low. If you can get below this level, then you qualify as a SUPER ENERGY SAVER for sure!!! Just thought I'd set the bar at a point where mere mortals have a chance of keeping up with me. Flame suit on!!!
