Kick off the summer season by celebrating Memorial Day weekend with a few
energy-saving tips.

Keep Your Kitchen Cooler

 

When you must turn the oven on, limit pre-heating, keep the door closed, use a meat thermometer and clean the door seal to avoid heating the whole room.
Fill Up the Fridge

 

Keeping your refrigerator full helps prevent warm air from entering when the door is open. The more open space there is inside to cool, the harder the refrigerator has to work.
Use the Dishwasher

 

Your dishwasher uses less water than washing dishes by hand. Conserve energy by running it only when fully loaded, and turn off the dry cycle to air dry dishes.

tip 

 

Driving the speed limit can help you save gas, as mileage drops dramatically for most cars traveling faster than 50mph. Each 5mph over 50 is like paying an extra $.25 a gallon, according to the Department of Energy.
