choosing the perfect electric range

When choosing an electric range for your kitchen, you will have many, many options. There are three main types of electric ranges for you to choose from. Do you know what they are? I created this blog after spending months researching different products and choosing the perfect range for my kitchen. I wanted a stove that would be efficient, nice looking and that would last several years with very little maintenance. It is my hope that my months of research will help you find the range for your kitchen with fewer steps and less time in the decision making process.

3 Tips For Conserving Energy When Doing Laundry

Blog

There are probably a few reasons why conserving energy is important to you. You might worry about the cost of your electric bills, and you might also be concerned about the impact that you and your family's habits have on the environment. There are so many ways to conserve energy in your day-to-day life, and one great place to start is with the way that you do your laundry. These are a few tips for conserving energy when washing you and your family's clothes.

1. Invest in a High-Efficiency Washer

One thing that many people don't realize is that EnergyStar actually does not provide ratings for dryers; this is because they are seen to be similarly energy efficient as they have always been. However, washing machines have changed a lot over the years, and newer models are much more energy efficient than older ones. A new washing machine can use half as much water as an older one, and it can save you 37 percent on energy costs as well. Plus, you might find that a new washing machine will do a better job of cleaning your clothes and will look much sleeker and more modern in your laundry room.

2. Hang Your Clothes Out to Dry

Take a tip from your grandmother, and consider hanging your clothing up to dry rather than tossing every load in the dryer. You can invest in a clothesline, or you can buy an indoor clothing rack if you don't have a big yard or if you don't want to hang your clothing up outside. You may want to toss loads in the dryer for a few minutes to soften them up after they are dry, but you will still be using much less energy than if you completely relied on your dryer to dry all of your loads.

3. Use a Shorter Cycle

Don't automatically put your washing machine on the "heavy duty" cycle, and avoid setting the long timer for small loads that you put in the dryer. Many people make the mistake of using the longest cycles on both their washing machines and dryers, and this can really add up when it comes to energy use and water use, particularly if you do multiple loads each week.

As you can see, there are a few ways that you can conserve energy when doing laundry. If you follow these tips, you are sure to notice a decrease in the amount of energy that your family uses when doing laundry throughout the month.
