Does standby use a lot of energy for appliances?



  1. 0 Votes

    Each individual appliance may not use up that much energy while on standby mode but if you take into consider all your appliances in the home, things can definitely add up! A phone charge uses up 0.25 watts per year even if it is not plugged into a phone, for as long as it is plugged into an outlet. A computer display, on the other hand, uses 12.14 watts per year when in sleep mode. “A laser printer actually uses more power in standby mode – 6.4 watts per year on ready and only 6.1 when fully on. A cordless phone uses 2.8 watts per year when the handset is in place and ready to use, but only 1.9 watts per year when you are actually on the phone.”
