In the run up to Halloween, DECC have launched a fun mini-campaign to make people aware of the energy vampires in their home – chargers plugged into the wall, TVs on standby and incorrect settings on products that suck energy.
Don’t be a sucker, Save energy. Save money. Switch it off and be #energyaware! Check out the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s vampire infographic about how to save money on your energy bill.
Leaving appliances on standby cost the average home up to £86 per year.
