Seven Energy Wasters in your Home (4)

Hot Stuff



Appliances only account for 13% of electric bills, so naturally, most people don’t upgrade to an energy efficient toaster. Still, if you are committed to reducing the amount of energy you use, you need to focus on larger appliances that use a heat coil, such as a refrigerator or washer and dryer. To do that, make sure that your fridge’s filters are cleaned regularly, and consider using only cold water to wash laundry loads. That can save $30 to $40 each year.
