For those looking to save a few extra dollars on your Hydro bill, beware of 'Vampire Power'.
Printers, video game consoles, cell phone chargers - they all use power even when they are not turned on. 'Vampire Power' from unused devices can account for up to 5% - 10% of household electricity use. So, if you are not using something, unplug it. Your energy bill will thank you.
Another great way to save on your energy bill is to install the NEST smart thermostat. Our household saved more than the cost of the unit in its first year. There are so many features in this device that will help save hundreds of dollars in utility cost.
