KW Saves kWhs: Kitchen Appliances

Here’s an easy way to help you lower your heating costs. Check back each month for additional ideas.

Refrigerators and freezers actually operate most efficiently when full, so keep your refrigerator and freezer as full as possible (using water bottles if nothing else). Be careful about overfilling them as this will reduce airflow and cause the appliance to work harder.

Don’t peek in the oven while baking! Every time you peek, the temperature can drop 25 degrees F, making your oven use more energy to bring the temperature back up.
