A few more ways to cut down on energy use:
-- Clean off the top of your refrigerator so heat can vent effectively.
-- Only run the dishwasher when it’s full.
-- Wash clothes in cold water to save the electricity it takes to heat water.
Never miss a local story.
-- Use a drying rack instead of a dryer.
-- Turn down the temperature on your hot water heater.
