These days it seems like all home appliances cost too much to run. We are here to help out and you can take this information to hopefully save money.The appliance that uses up the most energy in your home is your air conditioner. In the summer, it will run for most of the day, using up a lot of power. We suggest you raise your thermostat a few degrees. Raising it only a few will let you still feel comfortable. Another option is installing a ceiling fan to cool your house without running your air conditioner.

Another appliance that consumes a lot of power is your water heater. The water heater runs when you shower, run the dishwasher, and do a load of laundry. With this one object working to heat multiple appliances, something should be done to make sure your water heater does not weaken. One suggestion is short showers or lowering the temperature of the water will save you money. Changing how you do your laundry and dishes will also save a lot.

When it comes to running your washer, set it to use cooler and less water than normal. The colder setting on your washer will do a good enough job of cleaning your clothes. For your dishwasher, most of the power is from heating up the water. The best way to reduce this is to not overuse your dishwasher. Make sure it is full, but not too full. If you overload the dishwasher, not all the dishes will get clean and will have to go in another cycle.

If you are cautious of how your refrigerator is being used, you can still have fresh food and not have it run too much. Don’t set the temperature too cold. The recommended temperature for the refrigerator is 35° to 38°F, and 0°F for the freezers. Also make sure the seals are tight and the door gaskets are working. If not they will need to be replaced. Make sure you defrost the freezer regularly and most importantly, keep the door closed.

It is important to use your appliances correctly so you do not overdo anything, and waste energy and money. Hopefully these tips have helped you out.
