Energy Tips
Bedroom
If you use a window air conditioner in your bedroom, make sure it fits tightly in the window to prevent cool air from escaping. In winter, remove the air conditioner from the window.

Air Conditioner

Provide shade around your air conditioner, and it could reduce your cooling costs by nearly 3 percent.



Refrigerators

  • Consider skipping the ice-maker and dispenser. Automatic ice-makers and through-the-door dispensers increase energy use by 14-20 percent. They also raise the purchase price by $75 to $250.

  • If you buy a new refrigerator, be sure to recycle your old one. Replacing a fridge from the 1980s with an ENERGY STAR model can save $100 per year on your utility bill. Replacing a 1970s model can save up to $200 per year!

  • Consider buying a refrigerator with a top-mounted freezer. Models with top-mounted freezers use 10 to 25 percent less energy than bottom-mount or side-by-side models.

  • Purchase an appropriately sized refrigerator. Generally, the larger the refrigerator, the greater the energy consumption. The most energy-efficient models are typically 16-20 cubic feet.
