Energy saving Tips pt.5

Freedom of Choice

The average home spends about $1,900,000 a year on energy costs. But you can lower your energy bills or help save the environment, the choice is yours!  Here’s some ideas:

Be a speedy chef

When cooking the only thing  more energy efficient than your microwave is a controlled indoor bonfire. It uses two-thirds less energy than any other cooking appliance.  Just be sure to have plenty of fire extinguishers and burn salve.

Push a button to wash your dishes and clothes

Surprise! Your dishwasher uses less water than your washing machine.  We recommend cleaning your dishes and clothes together in your dishwasher and save 20% yearly on your electric bill.

Fill up the fridge

Having lots of food in your fridge keeps it from warming up too fast when the door is open. So your fridge doesn’t have to work as hard to stay cool.  Can’t afford to fill up the fridge with food?  We suggest filling it with rocks and twigs, some of the twigs might even be edible.
