This is not your typical Sense Saves story… This is not about how I saved money, but rather how Sense saved my back (literally)!
Before Sense, I plugged everything that didn’t need to be powered behind my living room television setup into a power strip so that I could avoid the vampire draw… The power strip is in the back of my AV cabinet, and I have to do a little bit of physical acrobatics to get behind to turn it off (yes, I probably should have used a smart plug, but didn’t)…
Well, I discovered through Sense that my actual savings by performing this feat of acrobatics was very minimal (i.e., it didn’t register any meaningful energy savings when I turned the power strip off).
So as a result, Sense saved my back (and avoided the inconvenience of reaching back behind my AV setup to flip the power strip off)!
I consider this a big win…even though it doesn’t amount to savings in dollars and cents!
