Standby for a big bill!

UK homes waste 16% of their energy – or £1.3 billion from doemstic homes – on unneeded lighting and appliances left on standby. The worst offenders (according to the Energy Saving Trust) are these – and switching off could save most households £86 each year:

– Desktop computers

– Laser printers

– TV and satellite boxes

– DVD players

– Games consoles

– Microwaves

– fridge freezers (a eco-freezer could save you £100 each year)

– Washing machines

– Transformers and power packs

– Mobile phone chargers
