1. Cool it down
Let your leftovers cool off before placing them in the fridge! Hot foods such as soup or casseroles, can raise the refrigerator’s internal temperature, making it more difficult for the appliance to cool down.
2. Toaster Oven to the Rescue
Using a toaster oven is a great way to save energy when you don’t need to use a larger conventional oven and waste heat. You can bake anything from meats to cakes in a toaster oven and save on energy costs while doing so!
3. Change Air Filters
Air filters affect more than just the quality of air but also the performance of your HVAC system as well as the lifespan of your unit. So don’t forget to change your air filters and save yourself extra dollars on energy!
4. Dryer Maintenance
Dryer balls cut down on dry time as well as eliminate static in your clothes. Don’t forget to keep your lint trap clean to make sure your clothes are being dried properly.
5. Task Lighting
Using a book light while reading or a stove light while cooking will save you those extra dollars you need. Don’t forget to turn off lights that you aren’t using and check lights before you leave the house.
