Ghost Energy

Jul 11, 2017

There’s a silent thief in your home that could be costing you a load of money on your power bill.  Its call ghost energy and it’s a terrifying thing!  That glowing clock on the stove or microwave that isn’t actually in use, that’s ghost energy.  And the TV or home entertainment system in standby mode waiting to be powered up, that’s ghost energy too. 

Those outdoor lights that continue burning long after everyone’s gone to bed- ghost energy.  And all these little things really add up over the course of a month or a year.  So how can you put an end to this silent bandit?  Unplug appliances that aren’t in use.  Employ power strips for that home entertainment system than can be completely turned off once you’ve finished watching the big game.  And invest in motion lighting for your outdoor living spaces.
