Tuesday Tip Jar


Here are some more time & Energy saving tips for the beating the summer heat and energy bill.

Nothing is more energy efficient for cooking than your microwave. It uses two-thirds less energy than your stove.

Surprise! Your dishwasher uses less water than washing dishes by hand. Then let dishes air-dry to save even more!

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.

Do your laundry efficiently by using the warm or cold water setting for washing your clothes. Always use cold water to rinse clothes. (Save: 4 percent)

When you need to use the dryer, run full loads, use the moisture-sensing setting, and clean the clothes dryer lint trap after each use. (save: 0.5 percent)

Turn off appliances, lights and equipment when not in use. (Save: 2%)

Unplug electronic devices and chargers when they aren’t in use-most new electronics use electricity even when switched “off.” Turn computers and printers off at the power strip. (Save: 1-2 percent)
