“Don’t Waste Our Water. It’s Beneath You!”

Conservation Questions to Ask Yourself?

Do you turn off lights when you leave a room?   Don’t waste energy when you are not using it.

Are the gaskets on your refrigerator and freezer doors clean and tight?  If gaskets aren’t clean and tight, cold air will leak out and the motor will have to run more often to replace it. You can test gaskets by placing a piece of paper between the door and the fridge, close the door and tug the paper. Does it slip out easily? If so, you may need to change the gasket.

Do you keep the freezer full, using milk cartons filled with water, if necessary? Object retain cold better than air.

To increase the efficiency of your refrigerator and freezer, do you clean/dust their coil every three months? Clean coils help the compressor get air and run better.

Do you defrost foods by leaving them in the refrigerator overnight?  This helps cool the refrigerator while keeping your food safe to eat.

Do you use a microwave, crockpot, or toaster oven instead of the range top or oven when possible? Picking your cooking method can help save energy.

When using the oven, do you rarely open the door, and use a timer?  Each time you open the oven, it loses 20 percent of its heat.

Do you keep pots covered so that the food will cook faster?  If food cooks faster less energy is needed.

Do you place pot and pans on range top burners of the appropriate size?  Don’t use the big burner for a small pan.

Do you hang clothes up to dry, if possible? Air drying clothes is free.

Do you clean the dry’s lint trop before every load? This help the dry run more efficiently.

Do you check the dryer every 20 minutes to see if clothes are dry? Don’t waste energy by drying dry clothes.
