Appliances around the home
Switch off appliances on standby. Appliances on standby can account for 10% of your electricity. If you switch off just one appliance at the wall you could save 45 kilograms of greenhouse gas. Count them… how many are on standby in your home or office right now?
When purchasing your next appliance always check the energy rating label. The more starts on the label the more energy efficient the appliance.
Check if your fridge door is sealed properly by placing a strip of paper between the door and the fridge. If the paper can be pulled out easily, it might be time for a reseal.
Set your fridge’s temperature between 3°C and 5°C, and the freezer to somewhere between -15°C and -18°C. Every degree lower after that uses around 5% more energy.
Consider upgrading to a new dishwasher of your current one was manufactured in the early 90s – chances are its using twice as much water and 40% more energy.
