Learn How to Eliminate Phantom Loads

Many electronic devices at home and at work continue to use electricity even after you have turned them off: clocks, remote controls, TVs, video games, answering machines, microwave ovens, and the list goes on. This is because some devices that claimed to be "switched off" on the electronic interface are in a different state from switching off at the plug, or disconnecting from the power point. Those devices are called Vampire or Phantom loads, and they are probably adding a lot to your utility bill without you being aware of them.

You can visualize these phantom loads and even, stop them with Save A Watt® at home.
