Make Your House Go Green
Unplug! Just keeping your cell phone, TV, and DVD players plugged in
wastes 5 percent of all the energy you use each year.
Replace those traditional incandescent bulbs if you havenâ€™t already,
or, consider LED lighting as well â€¦ an even greener lighting option.
In terms of energy efficiency, microwaves are better than toaster
ovens; toaster ovens are better than regular ovens. Reduce cooking
energy by as much as 80 percent using the microwave.
For each degree you turn down your air conditioner in the summer, you
waste about one percent on what it costs to cool your home. Anirban
Banerjee from iDream said that â€œYou donâ€™t really need winter
temperatures in the summer to keep yourself coolâ€. Use the air
conditioner for shorter hours and at higher temperatures to lower
energy bills and do your share in reducing carbon emissions.
Upgrade the old fridge or freezer â€¦.there are several energy saving
options available in the market.
