When finished using appliances, turning them off at the wall, & disconnecting the power cord,
Will not only save YOU $$$$$$$, but protect your valuable electronic equipment.
Granted, most appliances have surge protection today, but what if it failed.
An example: We had a blackout yesterday, I had already turned off my devices, & unplugged from the wall. When the power came back on, they were ok.
Even when an appliance is connected, but wall switch off, said appliance/device, still draws power.
Even solar powered homes, should heed my advice.
I’m not trying to be pushy or controlling, just advising.
My last home in Sydney, I saved over $250.00 per quarter by following the above.
The only appliance that should be left on at all times, is the fridge & freezer.
