Energy Saving Tips For Renters

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.

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
