As food and fuel prices rise, saving money on energy has become more important than ever. Try these useful tips and take a more frugal approach to your energy use.
Insulate Your Electrical Outlets. This helps prevent a rush of cold air flowing into the house. Check with your electric company, as most provide insulating foam pads.
Wash your dishes correctly. Fill the basin with hot water when you do your dishes. You’ll use less water and save on all that heat for water that would just go down the drain as you rinse.
Do not use the dry cycle on your dishwasher. Open the door and let them air dry.
Let the air dry your clothes. Dry your wash on a clothesline or wooden drying stand in the bathroom.
Vacuum the coils behind your refrigerator every four to six months. This helps cut electrical use and will cut down on the noise your refrigerator spews.
Turn down the water temperature. If you have to dilute your hot water with cold to prevent scalding yourself, it’s time to adjust your heater.
