We look after your old appliances with our Mississauga dumpster bin rentals. You might be upgrading the old refrigerator and stove. Maybe that washer and dryer that’s being hanging around for years has finally broken down.

Essential Disposal Services has a variety of disposal bins at your service. If you’re getting rid of an old appliance, the chances are you’re bringing in new ones. Here’s a few tips to save energy and lower your heating and cooling costs.

Some of the appliances you buy can still cost money even when they are turned off. In fact, some of these can cost you up to $200 a year extra. If you’d rather not unplug the new device when you’re done using it, consider a smart power strip.

You can turn these off and on with the flip of a switch. What’s more, the good ones have built-in surge protectors that keep your new appliances safe.

Heat Your Water Sensibly 

Experts recommend that you turn your thermostat to 120°F to save money on your water heating bill. Heating water is the second-biggest cost for most homeowners. There are other ways you can lower this energy cost including taking shorter showers instead of long baths.

Do you let the water run while you are brushing your teeth? How about stepping away from the sink while it’s filling up to find a dishtowel? Even just a few extra minutes of running water can add up over a year.

Finally, cold water gets your clothes just as clean in the laundry as hot.

Set Your Refrigerator’s Temp Properly  

Listening to the experts can help you save money on your heating and cooling costs. For example, Energy Star suggests a temperature ranging between one to three degrees Celsius will keep your food fresh without wasting electricity.

Making sure that your windows are sealed properly helps. Weatherstripping and caulking will seal any air leaks around your doors and windows. There is an additional $200 a year in savings to be had by insulating your home properly.
