Energy-Wasting Appliances to Unplug or Use Less
There are a number of small changes you can make in your apartment that can help lower your electric bill without sacrificing something important, like the comfort of air conditioning. For example, many electronics, especially ones with digital displays, pull electricity from the outlets they’re plugged into even when they’re not currently being used, and even when they’re turned off. If you’d like to save some electricity, unplug the following items when you’re not using them, if possible:
- Desktop and laptop computers
- DVD players
- Plasma Screen TVs
- Gaming consoles
- Coffee makers
- Cell phone chargers
- Hair dryers
Another tip to keep in mind is, in general, new appliances are much more energy efficient than older ones, so it may be more economical in the long run to upgrade your TV, computer, etc. Additionally, when it isn’t too hot or humid, cool your apartment by opening windows and running your ceiling fans.
