Vampire Appliances and Your Home

What are vampire appliances?

Vampire appliances are not in fact appliances that vampires use as the name would suggest. We don’t mean a fridge filled with treats for Dracula or a charger owned by a bat. Vampire appliances are appliances that, even when they are on standby or not in use, drain your power.
Vampire appliances cost Brits an average of £68 per year, making up 6% of their energy bill.

Which appliances are energy vampires?

Well, there are your obvious ‘standby mode’ devices including game consoles, televisions, and PC monitors. For example, your TV is constantly using energy to perform internal data and connect to remote controls, making your TV readily available for you, and as handy as this is, it adds to your energy usage.

Then there are your less obvious energy vampires, these devices drain your energy by relying on power to keep them in real-time. These include; microwaves, smart home devices, speakers, white goods such as your washing machine and dishwasher and also kitchen appliances for example your kettle or coffee machine.

How do I defeat an energy vampire?

Unplug appliances and electronics especially mobile phone chargers and video game systems.

If your appliances such as your television, game console or phone charger are plugged into an extension cord, switching off this extension cord when it is not in use could lead to saving yourself money on your energy all year round.

Energy saving tips for your garden

We all love to save money in our homes, but what about when it comes to our gardens? Running your garden in an energy efficient way doesn’t need to be complicated or difficult. Follow our money saving tips below to get your garden into shape.

Solar lights

Solar lights are a great way to light up your garden while keeping costs low. Whether your garden is big or small, swapping your electric garden lights to solar lights will not only be considerably cheaper but also help you to become a lot less dependent on the national power grid.

Water usage

watering can

If you are a keen gardener, you will know that come summertime, it is important to water your garden daily - especially in the drier months. The easiest way to cut costs would be to use a watering can instead of a hose. This will help you to control the amount of water you are using and save you from wasting the extra water in the hose once you are done.

Power tools

Before getting your power tools out to tackle your garden, have a think if it is really necessary or if you are just wasting money. Simple swaps like changing your electric hedge trimmer to a manual one will not only save money when it comes to your energy bill, but also help get in a cheeky arm workout.

Making extra shade

planting trees

We all know that shady spots come in handy when the sun comes out in full force. By planting trees around your garden, you will create cooler spots to relax under and ensure that the heat coming from the sun is blocked from your windows. This will stop you from using extra fans in your home to keep it cool, saving you both money and energy in the long run.
