Energy saving is not just for homeowners, saving extends to everyone. No tip is too small when it comes to saving you money. Check out these 3 methods to help keep cash in your wallet.
- Avoid Over-Drying Your Clothes: If your dryer has a moisture sensor that will automatically turn the machine off when clothes are done, use it to avoid over- drying. Remember to clean the lint trap before every load. Dry full loads, or reduce drying time for partial loads. Hang drying is also an option!
- Wash Your Laundry With Cold Water: To save water, try to wash full loads or, if you must wash a partial load, reduce the level of water appropriately. Hot water heating accounts for about 90 percent of the energy your machine uses to wash clothes.
- Scrape Dishes: Save water by scraping dishes instead of rinsing them before loading in the dishwasher. Run your dishwasher with a full load and use the air-dry option if available.
