calling Trombone Al, phantom load question
I recall you had a meter and had measured phantom loads. I searched and could not find the threads, may be too old. Can you repost the info you got, as well as how you figured out what the phantom loads were?
Just asking as DH and I have seen an increase in electric bill, and I attribute it to phantom loads as well as the DVR that he uses a lot. My plan was to unplug as much as possible but he does not think that it will make a difference. Flourescent bulbs are about 50% of the total, and we are gradually replacing.
