Saving energy is a great way not only to save money but to help save our natural resources. IDT Energy wants consumers to do the utmost they can to conserve their budgets and the resources in world around us.

A great place to start real savings is right in your kitchen. Did you know that your refrigerator uses approximately 20% of all your household’s electricity, on average. By turning down the thermostat in the fridge to 37 degrees Fahrenheit and the freezer to as close to 3 degrees as possible, you can save quite a bit of electricity. Use a thermometer to check the temperature, and make sure that the energy saver switch is turned on.

Don’t forget to check the gaskets. They should be clean and well-fitting to create a tight seal, keeping in as much of the cold air your fridge created as possible.
