New products help reduce electricity wasted by equipment left on standby


New products help reduce electricity wasted by equipment left on standby How often do you leave appliances and electronic equipment on standby? Or you switch off the item, but don't turn off at the wall socket. It can be difficult to reach that socket behind the TV! But are you aware that even if a product is not in use, it could still be drawing electricity?

Entertainment systems are typically the biggest energy drains in the house, consuming electricity 24/7. It is estimated that, left on standby, one system could be costing approximately £60 per year.

Belkin's recently introduced a range of “Conserve” products could help this issue of wasted energy and increased electricity bills. Take a look at the Conserve Smart AV™ Auto-Off Surge Protector as a solution for your entertainment equipment.

We also particularly like the “Conserve Socket”, a portable socket that includes a timer which automatically switches the power off after a selected time interval - 30 minutes, 3 hours, or 6 hours. This prevents items such as electric toothbrushes or chargers for mobile phones, power tools or digital cameras to be left on charge unnecessarily.

This new collection of energy efficient products is available from high street retailers.

Anything that saves power sounds good to me, and I could use that for most things. However, switching video power off at the wall usually means you have to re-set the clock, date, etc which can be a nuisance.

Interesting stuff though.

The Conserve Smart AV™ Auto-Off Surge Protector has got two outlets that stay on for devices that need continuous power, like DVRs.
