If you notice small increases in your electric bill, take a look at the vampire loads around your home. Vampire loads, or phantom loads, describe appliances and fixtures that continuously use electricity, even after you turn them off. Over time, the small increases in your electric bill can quickly become a huge expense on your budget. You can lower your electrical expenses by controlling when and how vampire loads operate.
If you're planning to host an event for fundraising or just for entertainment, then you'll want to keep security in mind. The larger the guest list, the more types of security you'll want to employ. Even if you know everyone you're inviting, the dates they bring may have questionable motives. If you serve alcohol, even mild-mannered guests could get out of control. At the very least you'll want security cameras and a few security guards.
