Take the 1:5:10:365 challenge: Do one thing – for 5 to 10 minutes – 365 days a year to make our home and planet environment better.

1:5:10:336 EcoTip: When electronic equipment temperature goes up the life expectancy goes down. The shorter the life the greater the waste.

***********************************

 Additional Information:

According to information from Middle Atlantic Products

Most studies have shown that for every 10ºF rise over 85ºF, digital equipment life is reduced by approximately 40%!

To help improve their longevity –

  • Don’t stack electronics.
  • Keep them away from heat sources and sunlight
  • Keep them clean and their vent openings clear and away from obstructions.

Of course turning them off when they aren’t being used will keep them the coolest.
