We’re seriously tired of paying our electric bill. Yeah, it’s not too bad in the spring when we can have our windows open and give the A/C a break, but at the height of summer and winter? Yikes. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t even get an electric bill because all of the things in our home would run on double rainbows and pumpkin spice lattes. But because we don’t see that happening any time soon, we’d like to share a few of our favorite energy bill shrinking apps that might make you cringe a little less each month.
You could be using 10% more electricity than you need by leaving electronics and other devices plugged in when they’re not in use. It’s true! This app, which is available on both Android and Apple, will calculate how much “phantom energy” you’re wasting and determine how much you could be saving on your electric bills by unplugging devices when they’re not being used.
