If your kitchen appliances are getting old, you may want to consider investing in some new, Energy Star-labeled ones. Although it may seem like unnecessary spending, these appliances can significantly cut monthly energy costs. For example, self-cleaning ovens can save up to 25% of the energy generally used by ovens. This is because they are better insulated, and the heat is distributed evenly throughout the oven. Ovens with big windows can also help you save energy, as they allow you to check the food without letting heat escape unnecessarily.

Refrigerators are another large energy consumer. In fact, they are usually the largest energy consumer in the house. Energy efficient fridges will come with an energy-saver switch. Also, keep in mind that the traditional freezer-on-top fridges are more energy efficient. For more tips and information, you may find it useful to contact your electric company, like IDT Energy.
