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.
