does turning all appliances to stand-by save energy



  1. 0 Votes

    Turning appliances onto their standby mode will consume less energy than leaving them completely turned on.  It is best to turn off appliances all the way if possible.  Standby still consumes a continuous amount of power.  To save the most energy, turn off the appliances all the way when possible, such as electronics, toaster ovens, and coffee makers.  Turning off major appliances like the refridgerator is not so simple or sanitary, but there are many things you can do to make them more efficient.  The link below explains how to maximize energy reduction in machines like fridges, freezers, washing machines, and entertainment systems.

    When appliances are in standby mode, they do consume less energy, but they still consume some. It is best to turn most products completely off and to unplug them if possible. One of the best solutions is to put plugs into a power rod that you can easily turn on and off. This prevents any chances of products that “vampire” drain energy. “Vampire” drain is when products continue to consume energy even if they are turned off. Many older video game consoles do this (the power block will feel hot even when the system is off). Plugging products into a power strip that can be turned on and off will prevent any “vampire” drain. Turning computers on and off daily isn’t preferable because computers take more energy to boot up than other tasks. Putting your computer in sleep mode when you are not using it during the day and turning it off at the end of the day are good ways to save energy.
