Post Saving Energy When You Print
by: Peter Warrior

Printers and copiers use a lot of energy and standby mode can be misleading. If you want to save energy while printing and copying, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Laser printers use a lot of energy. If you do need a laser printer, you can save energy by buying a slower one. The fastest laser printers tend to draw more energy than the slower ones, even when not in use.

Use less paper. It takes a lot of energy to make new paper approximately 15 watt-hours per sheet. The less paper you use, the less energy you're using, essentially. Print on both sides of paper sheets whenever you can, and use recycled paper it takes considerably less energy and natural resources to recycle paper than it does to make it from scratch.

Use sleep mode not standby. Most printer energy is used when the machine isn't actually in use during standby mode. If you're not using your printer, turn it off it won't use more energy to power up than it does while in standby. If you want to save energy while your printer isn't being used, look for a printer that offers a low-energy 'sleep' mode instead.

Your printer can use a lot of energy. But follow these tips, and you should be able to keep your energy use down. Use sleep mode when you're not using the machine, and turn it off if you're not planning to use it for a while. When buying, look for an inkjet printer with energy saving features such as sleep mode.
