Electronics and Appliances
Just as we encourage to carefully turn off lights when not in use, the same is encouraged for electronics and even some appliances. Don’t allow your Xbox to run when you aren’t playing a game, and shut off your computer you should definitely used. If no one is watching the television, turn that off too. The same goes for radios, coffee makers, fans, space heaters, curling irons, and anything that plugs into an outlet and turns on.
As for home appliances, try not to run a washer or dryer unless you have a full load, and don’t run the dishwasher unless it’s all the way full. One of the most important parts of conserving energy and saving on monthly utility bills is to have your devices serviced and cleaned regularly. If an appliance is old, worn down, or deteriorating, it will have to work harder to perform the same duties. This uses more energy and water. Change filters, flush tanks, and do what needs to be done to ensure your appliances are in prime condition.
