Apartment Living BlogApartment Living › How To Go Energy Efficient With Appliances In Your Apartment-Part III

Finally, our last bit of tips in our Part III Make Your Apartment Energy Efficient blog. As promised, ways to conserve energy using your appliances!
Appliances:

  • Okay, so this tip is actually REALLY COOL! Did you know that if you thaw frozen food in the refrigerator (instead of the countertop-which I am ashamed to say I do all the time) that you actually help the refrigerator cut down the energy it uses to control the cool temperature? The frozen food helps with that while it’s defrosting. All you have to do is think about it the night before.
  • And if you’ve been paying attention to any of our posts regarding energy efficiency, you know that you need to turn off and/or unplug appliances when you are not using them (this includes computers, cell phone chargers and small appliances in the kitchen)
  • Whenever possible use the range top instead of the oven as it uses far less energy.
  • When cooking or baking make sure you also don’t open the door any more than absolutely necessary. The oven loses about 20% of its heat every time you open the door! Every time! WOW!! So if you need to peek in and see how that turkey is doing, just flip on the light.

Well that’s pretty much what I retained from the article called ‘Tips for an Energy-Efficient Apartment’ located at Healthgoods.com. I hope you have learned as much as I did. Being energy efficient is very important; not only for the environment, but it will also save you a bundle in the long run! You can always check out our other tips on our Apartments Going Green section of our blog as we strive to put more information out there for everyone. Also, feel free to add any thing that we haven’t yet spoken about. The more information the better!
