With Thanksgiving only a few short weeks away, we gathered up some energy saving tips to help you this holiday. Go through this list to start implementing these right away.
- Big Family? Lower your thermostat by a degree or two before you guests begin to arrive. Your guests will help generate heat naturally.
- Make a list. Before you open the fridge to grab all of the ingredients you’ll need, make a list to get them all in one trip. Each time the door is opened the compressor is forced to work longer and harder.
- No peeking. Avoid wasting heat while your turkey is in the oven by opening the door. Instead turn on the oven light to get a view of how dinner is coming along.
- Cool it. Before adding hot foods to the fridge, allow them to cool off! Adding steaming hot food will force your fridge to work harder to cool it down.
