Heating and Cooling adjustments will save homeowners thousands of dollars over the long run. The art of reducing energy is a subtle one, but it remains extremely accessible. No, energy saving does not require going to extremes. It is not necessary to solar panel your roof, switch to organic beef, or drive a Prius if you want to save money. Instead, a few simple adjustments to your appliance use can save you money and our mighty mother, Earth.
Washer and Dryer 101
For most men, doing laundry is a daunting task to be feared and avoided like the bubonic plague. But, if one is forced to wash their clothes, they may be able to weather the storm with this in mind: you can save money. First off, always do full loads. Seems obvious but some fail to grasp it. Secondly, run your laundry cycles successively. It takes energy to rapidly cool and heat the water used to clean your clothes. But running a successive cycle reduces energy use beyond a doubt.
Figuring Out the Fridge
One of the easiest ways to save money is to make an energy conscious decision and purchase an energy efficient refrigerator. Older refrigerators obviously use far more energy than the newer ones. Although you might sink thousands of dollars upfront into a new shiny refrigerator, it will pay for itself in the long run as you enjoy the blissful bliss of lower energy bills.
