In previous articles we discussed why its so important to consider energy saving
today & the impact it has on the monthly budget. Reduce your energy consumption & you will reduce your energy costs.
We also looked at Energy Labeling & what it means so you can decide which it the right appliances for your home & budget
Now we will look at some other things you can do which will further reduce your monthly energy consumption
Replace your old refrigerator if possible within 10 years. As your old refrigerator approaches 10 years or less it will consume twice as much energy as a new star energy efficient model
Defrost your refrigerator & freezer as soon as you get ice build up as your appliance
needs to work harder to maintain the temperature
Place weatherstrips around windows & doors, this prevents your appliance from working overtime to produce more heat or cooling that has escaped
Replace faulty plumbing & leaking taps, a single leaking hot water tap can waste 6
600 litres of water per month. This not only increases your water bill but also increases your gas or electric bill to heat the water
When using the dishwasher, wash only when it is full & use the shortest cycle possible to get the dishes clean.
Leave the door open & avoid using the drying cycle, Try using the dishwasher last thing at night then your dishes are dry & ready to use the following morning.
