Use Surge Protectors to Save Energy and Money

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. uses 3 billion dollars worth of energy a year in “Vampire Power.” Plug your electronics into  surge protectors, so you can switch them all off during the times your not using them, this should include small appliances. It is said over time many microwaves and televisions will consume as much electricity during the hours they’re not in use than the times you’re actually using them. Also remember to check into Energy Star certified electronics, and to recycle old electronics.
