Energy Tips
Laundry Room

Wash full loads whenever possible. If you must wash a small load, use the appropriate water level setting.



Bathroom
Fix leaky faucets in bathroom sink, tub, or shower. Not only can you save 10 to 20 gallons of water per day, but you can keep energy dollars for water heating from going down the drain.

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.
