ENERGY CONSERVATION TIPS
Use these timely tips to lower your electric bill.
Lower the hot water temperature on your water heater to 120 degrees (140 degrees if you have a dishwasher).
Use an extra layer of insulation on your hot water heater.
Do you have a leaky faucet? Slow drips in your sink could be costing you hot water. Fix those faucets!
Install your water heater as close as possible to where the most hot water will be used. The less distance it has to travel in the lines, the less heat you’ll lose.
A manual defrost freezer should be defrosted when frost is 1/4″ thick.
Open the doors on your refrigerator and freezer only when necessary.
A freezer operates more efficiently when nearly full, but not overcrowded.
Clean your refrigerator’s condenser coils twice a year.
Baking? Don’t peek! The temperature inside your oven drops 25 to 50 degrees every time the oven door is opened.
Don’t waste heat! Turn the cooking eye on your electric range to OFF just before food is done.
Cooking frozen food? Defrost your food first!
Use cold or warm water for most loads of laundry. Cold water rinses as well as hot. Rinse economically with cold water.
Wash full loads of laundry whenever possible. Partial loads wastes energy — and water!
If you have several loads of laundry, try to dry them one after the other. An already warm dryer saves energy and saves time.
Permanent, press cycle or cool air use less energy on your laundry dryer. Use this cycle when drying synthetics.
