March is the month of GREEN, and at Flame Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, and Electrical we are all about the green too. We won’t be talking about shamrocks and leprechauns, but we will be talking about being green by being energy efficient. So here are 5 quick and easy tips to help you save money and energy this month.
-If you only need a little bit of water from the sink, keep the handle in the cold water position. If the handle is in the warm water position energy is still used to heat the water, even if the warm water never reaches you by the time you turn the sink off.
-Make sure to cover up any leftovers that you store in the fridge. If left uncovered, these foods will release moisture, which will make the fridge compressor work harder.
-Don’t rinse or soak your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, unless food is really burned or dried on. Scrape off leftover food instead.
-If you aren’t going to be using your computer for the next two hours-turn it off!
-Whenever possible, turn off the lights and use natural light in your home.
