So maybe you can’t afford to replace all your windows right now or purchase a new, super-efficient heating system. But until you do, there are still some simple things you can do to save energy. And every little bit helps!
Avoiding Thermostatic Shock. You can reduce those shocking heating bills by simply turning down your thermostat a few degrees during the day when no one is in the home. Every degree you lower your thermostat could save you about 3% on your monthly heating bill. So if you turn it down a mere three degrees, you’ll save about 9-10% on your heating bill. (And remember, if you leave your thermostat turned too high, you’re going to be shocked by high bills!)
Microwave for “Unconventional” Savings. Remember, using a microwave to cook meals uses about half the energy of a conventional oven. So here is your opportunity to be “unconventional” once in a while and save some money doing it.
Clean Your Fridge Coils. Vacuum the coils on the back of your refrigerator at least every three months. When dirt builds up on these coils, the refrigerator has to work harder to keep contents cool, so it uses more energy.
Laundry Lessons that Lessen Energy Waste. Of course, washing clothes in cold water can also save on energy. And here’s another laundry tip: put a dry towel in the dryer with each load of wet clothes. The towel will absorb dampness and reduce drying time, saving energy and money.
