Try these energy-saving tips to save money at home and work
CHICAGO (Oct. 30, 2019) – ComEd wants to help customers ward off energy vampires this Halloween and is providing tips to help businesses and residential customers save money and energy. Hint: none involve cloves of garlic.
Vampire energy, also known as standby energy, is what is drawn from outlets when equipment is off but still plugged in. Many types of home electronics and office equipment, including mobile phone chargers, computers, printers and game consoles, continue to draw electricity while they are plugged in and turned off.
Avoid being drained with these tips:
Close the coffin for good with the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program. It offers a variety of rebates, discounts and assessments to help homeowners, businesses and municipalities save more wisely.
ComEd customers can also schedule a free ComEd Home Energy Assessment. An energy advisor will identify opportunities to save and offer free energy efficient products. Schedule an appointment online today at ComEd.com/Assessment or call 1-855-433-2700.
