Van Nuys, CA (PressExposure) September 24, 2009 -- Lance Kimball from Appliance Repair Specialists of Tampa, said, "appliances account for about 20 percent of a household's annual electricity use." Since most of our nation's electricity is generated from fossil fuels (such as coal and natural gas), which contribute to global warming and air and water pollution, replacing older appliances with more efficient models can amount to a huge home energy saving. However, these appliances are only as efficient as the person using them.
No matter what model of energy saving devices you own, there are easy ways to make sure it is using as little electricity as possible.
For example, your stove:
Electric - If your burners are not heating... 1. Make sure they are sitting straight in their proper positions.
Electric - If your oven is not heating... 1. Make sure the clock is set on manual cycle and not the automatic time bake cycle.
Gas - If the top burners are not lighting... 1. Wipe off the burner with a hot, damp rag and then dry completely.
Gas - If your oven is not heating... 1. Make sure the clock is set on the manual and not the automatic cycle. 2. Raise up the top and keep the area clean and free of grease build-up.
