#3. DVRs

According to the National Resources Defense Council, the combination of DVRs and cable boxes use more energy each year than the new Energy Star refrigerators! Just like typical cable boxes, DVRs are on all the time in most homes, and they don’t normally have a standby mode. Turn your DVR off when it is not in use, and don’t forget to turn off the power strip that it is plugged into!

#4. Cable Modems and Routers

Cable modems and routers use power constantly, and they are on all day long. The constant connectivity and blinking lights might not seem like much, but the 10 watts of power that they use at all times can really start to add up. If you are in the market for a new cable modem and router, look out for the Energy Star rating on the label.
