Today let’s take a look at The Energy Star rating or certification; does it really mean much to you?
But first……….., yesterday we looked at Phantom Loads and what they are. The correct answer was:
- Electronics and appliances that consume power when they are turned off but still plugged in.
A phantom load, refers to power consumed by electronics and appliances while switched off. A typical American family has 40 products that have phantom loads and that can account for 10% of residential use. WOW, that is significant!
Today’s Energy Home IQ question is:
- How much and you save by switching to Energy Star appliances, fans, and electronics over their lifetime?
This is interesting, aren’t we all about saving our hard-earned money?
Tomorrow you get the correct answer.
