As I'm sure you know, your electricity bill changes throughout the year. In some areas, it's higher during winter when you're running your heater non-stop. In Phoenix, where I live, the A/C is running full blast all summer, which can raise your bill three to four times.
There are certain steps you can take to lower your seasonal bills, such as better insulation, window coverings, not running appliances at peak hours, and so forth. However, there are also some things you can do to bring down your bill year round.
Today, I'm going to talk about one that most people don't even realize is a problem. On the surface, it sounds too simple to be real.
Turn off your gadgets.
I told you it sounded simple, but there's a big catch. The gadgets that you've turned off might not actually be off. These are called "vampire electronics," and I'm going to tell you how to slay them.
