Don’t be an energy turkey this Thanksgiving

Don’t be an energy turkey this Thanksgiving

November 26, 2019 – As your prep your home for family, friends and Thanksgiving day fun, be sure to include energy savings in the mix. With these simple steps, you can prevent yourself from being an energy turkey while gobbling up savings:

Ode to your oven:
Your oven treats you well! Treat it well this Thanksgiving by cooking multiple things at once and resisting the urge to peek into the oven will keep your oven working only when it needs to. If you can cook some appetizers, dinner and dessert items at once, you can cut down on your electric usage while giving your oven a much-deserved rest. Remember that every time you open your oven, the temperature drops by 25 to 30 degrees in addition to raising the temperature in your kitchen.

Be a microwave maven:
Microwaves use half as much electricity as conventional ovens, and cook items in a shorter time. Consider using your microwave to cook smaller items like side dishes, and leave the big dishes for the oven.

Be brilliant when it comes to burners:
Make sure you match up pots and pans to your burners. Using a small pot on a big burner wastes electricity.

Give your fridge some free time:
Your fridge works hard all the time! Consider using a cooler rather than opening your fridge over and over to get out cold items like drinks. Be sure to give hot food time to cool down before storing them.

Let your dishwasher do its thing:
Save time, water and electricity by using your dishwasher to clean your Thanksgiving mess. If possible, scrape food from dishes to prevent the need to pre-rinse. Be sure to fill it completely to get the most bang for your buck!

Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at LCEC!
