How to Make Your Kitchen More Energy Efficient
It is no secret that energy costs are on the rise across the country. As a result, millions of people are looking for effective ways to reduce their monthly energy bills and establish more energy-efficient solutions for their homes. Well, the best place to start is with the kitchen.
Below are the top three steps to make your kitchen more energy efficient.
1) Remove the Dishwasher
Dishwashers consume entirely too much electricity. However, if you don’t mind washing dishes by hand in the sink, then you could save a substantial amount of money on your monthly electric bills.
At the very least, you could wait until your dishwasher is fully loaded with dishes before you turn it on. But most people can exist without a dishwasher altogether.
2) Create Distance Between the Refrigerator and Oven
Ovens and boilers produce a lot of heat. So if the refrigerator is close to an oven or boiler, it will have to work harder to generate cool temperatures inside of it. That, of course, will cause the refrigerator to consume more electricity.
Therefore, you’ll want to create more distance between the refrigerator and oven. Then your refrigerator won’t need to consume as much electricity.
3) Use LED Lights
Switch all the traditional halogen bulbs in your kitchen with LED light bulbs because LED is more energy efficient than halogen.
