Corded Phones: More Efficient than Cordless

Corded Phones: More Efficient than Cordless

Recently we blogged about a company called Old Phone Works which refurbishes vintage corded phones. It turns out that not only are these phones good looking, they're also easier on your energy bill than your cordless phones...

Our current issue of Metropolitan Home reports that "tests revealed they (corded phones) use just a trace amount of electricity through the phone line, as opposed to the cordless variety, which consumes two to three watts just sitting in the dock."

Just another reason to bring our 1980's fire engine red phone out of storage and into circulation. We've done so before but the ring is shockingly loud...
