Vampire Energy-How Scary!

18 May 2012

Vampire energy (also called phantom load) is not really that scary since there are no real vampires involved! Vampire energy means that when you turn off electronics, like your  TV and video game console, it is still using energy. Crazy right?

The electronics that use vampire energy are ones that have a remote or some kind of little light that is on all the time. And any chargers for  an iPod, computer or cellphone that are left plugged into the wall, all day.

How many electronics can you find in your house that are using vampire energy? Once you find them all you have to do to save energy is unplug it from the wall when  you are not using them. Ta da! You are saving energy!
