Thankfully, Liz Hunter, Director at Money Expert, has revealed the top five "worst appliances" for consuming energy when left on standby.She clarified: "The term, 'vampire device', is used to describe electrical devices that continue to drain power when they're plugged in but not actually being used, such as leaving a television on standby.""Although this may be convenient, it will be contributing to your already increasing energy bill.

While it may not seem like a major problem in the short term, over the course of a year the aggregate cost of leaving multiple devices on standby can add a noticeable extra amount onto your bills." "Some of the most common 'vampire devices' include microwaves, computer monitors, coffee machines, white goods and chargers," reports the Express.
