Save money and follow these tips to lessen your use of energy from electronic devices:
- Switch Your Devices Off When Not in Use
This is common sense and is a very easy step to follow. Turn off all devices that are not in use so you could save more energy. Saving little amounts of energy will become a huge difference in time.
- Pull Off the Plugs Even If Your Device is Turned Off
Devices, even when turned off, still consume energy from your power grids 24/7. Some of these “vampire” devices include satellites, digital cables, and video recorders. If you want to be free from hassle, you can install a power bar, so you can easily switch off electrical energy consumed by unused devices.
- Make Use of the Energy Saving Mode
You can save more energy by changing your computer and smartphone setting to energy saving mode. Set it to hibernate after a few minutes of inactivity. This is more practical than turning off and turning on your most used device repeatedly.
- Purchase Energy-Saving Products
When buying a brand-new electronic device, look for an “Energy Star” logo in it. Devices with this logo are proven and tested to be energy saving.
