IWLA Sustainability Council Tip of the Week: Does leaving lights, computers, and other appliances "on" use less energy than turning them off and-on repeatedly?

No. The small surge of power created when some devices are turned on is vastly smaller than the energy used by running the device when it's not needed. In the past, cycling appliances and lighting on and off significantly reduced their useful lifetime. However, these problems have been largely overcome through better design. The rule of thumb today is: Turn off the lights when you leave the room and use the power management software that comes with your computer and monitor.


Exceptions to the rule: Switching CFLs on-and-off frequently will shorten their lives so leave them on if they will be needed again within 15 minutes.
