Despite the recommendations regarding the devices on standby, the advice is not to turn off the wi-fi to save on bills. Here because
For weeks (and perhaps months) now we continue to talk about what must be the main precautions regarding the behaviors to be implemented at home, with the aim of calm consumption and avoid high bills.
But while the advice is always to make sure that the devices in stand-by are turned off correctly, on the other hand the advice is to avoid turn off the modem when we don’t have to use it (for example when we are away). Here because.
That’s why you don’t have to turn off the wi-fi
L’rising energy prices it seemed a topic to be dealt only in newspapers or on TV; however, from the moment the bills arrived in our homes, everything became more concrete. The (right) advice that is heard the most around is that of install the classic “slippers” that allow you to connect the plugs of several devices close to each other and turn them off all together by pressing “off” on the multi-socket.
When we go away from home, go to sleep or, more simply, do not use the devices for a prolonged time, it is always useful turn everything off, in order to save on consumption and fight high bills. However, this does not apply to the wi-fi router. The advice, in fact, is to always leave it on. Here because.
Obviously turning off the router during the night would still represent a saving, but negligible if we think about the fact that the cost in energy terms, within a year, is between 23 and 51 euros. Therefore, from a purely economic point of view, turn off the device it wouldn’t seem that useful.
But one of the main reasons why many recommend turning off the wi-fi router is the health. However, at least as far as recent studies are concerned, there is no evidence that any Health problems depend on too high and continuous exposure to waves from this device.
Finally, it is useful to remember that turning on the wi-fi router is not as immediate as that of a hairdryer or an appliance. When you restart the device, in fact, it starts one start-up procedure which consists of testing, hooking up to the line, connecting to the network, hardware checks, etc. Proceedings that would still require an additional energy expenditure.
