Choosing new appliances with care or using your old ones more efficiently is the key to reducing water and energy consumption.
Do you know that every appliance has two price tags? And even if you receive any kind of appliance as a gift you will still be paying for it – for the energy and water it consumes or for a repair when needed.
The first price is what you pay to purchase it (or what someone paid) and it is pretty obvious. Though these days retailers are so creative with the promotions they run that in many cases you realize the actual price after you see your credit card/bank statement.
The second price as we said is what you pay for the energy and the water the appliance uses. Just remember when choosing your new coffee maker, refrigerator, washing machine, etc. to check if and how much energy and water it saves.
Most new appliances tend to be considerably more energy efficient than their predecessors. Energy efficiency alone can’t be a solid reason for replacing an old appliance since the energy savings are not great enough to justify the cost of the new appliance.
Still nothing in this world lasts forever and there are many other reasons people decide to replace an old appliance. I hated it when my long loved microwave oven stopped working. I was so used to it and going through researching and choosing a new one was a nightmare. What about you? Do you get attached to your possessions to the extend you miss them when they die out? Or what about that kitchen makeover you’ve been dreaming about? Those old appliances may simply not look right in a newly remodeled kitchen. No matter the reason for buying a new appliance, in most cases it pays back to buy an energy efficient model.
Selecting energy-efficient kitchen appliances can save you money in utility costs. Follow our simple guidelines for your household appliances to keep them running smoothly and efficiently year after year.
