5 Biggest Energy User Culprits

Even when you turn off your electronics, they could still be wasting electricity. When you press the off switch, many electronics — like televisions, DVRs and satellite boxes– go into standby mode.


During standby mode, electronics don’t turn off completely. They perform updates, record your favorite shows and generally just wait for you to come back, sucking up energy as they do. This is called standby power or phantom load. The energy lost is called vampire energy or leaking energy.


According to the US Department of Energy, your electricity wasters account for 10 percent or more of your electricity bill. Check out Vic’s Energy Wasters Infographic to get some tips of those devices that may be draining increasing your energy bill.
