- Preheat oven only for baked foods that require precise temperatures such as breads, cookies, and cakes. Casseroles, roasts, and broiled foods don’t need to go into a warm oven.
- Vacuum the refrigerator coils twice a year. Dirty coils make the refrigerator work harder and use more energy.
- Turn your oven off about five minutes before cooking time is complete.
- When a 1/4 inch layer of frost has accumulated, it is time to defrost. Frost acts as an insulator and forces the appliance to work harder.
- Clean the lint filter after every load of laundry. This decreases the drying time and increases the airflow.
- Use a covered pan to boil water. It will use less energy and is much faster.
- Use microwave ovens to save energy and reduce cooking time.
- Consider washing and drying dishes by hand, rather than using a dishwasher.
When cooking – don’t continually open oven door to check on food, you lose 20% of your heat every time the door is opened.
