Check Door Gaskets & Clean The Coils On Your Refrigerator

The average Las Vegan homeowner spends approximately 8% of their monthly utility costs on keeping perishable food items fresh. Energy Miser suggests easy tips so consumers can cut expenses. They propose 4 items consumers should check monthly to help reduce costs by even a few dollars. Ultimately, these steps may take less than 5 minutes to complete.

1. Check the gaskets on the doors of your refrigerator. Ensure the gaskets are not cut or flattened. Next, take a dollar bill and insert it between the gaskets, the refrigerator and the closed the door. If you can pull the dollar bill out with little resistance you need to replace the door gaskets.
2. Next clean the coils underneath the refrigerator with your vacuum cleaner.
3. If you have a refrigerator on your patio or in the garage, you have to consider that when the temperature in your garage or the temperature outside is over 95 degrees that appliances will consume much more electricity. You may want to consider unplugging it and using a cooler when you entertain.
4. If at all possible, try to keep your freezer full; this will help reduce the run time of the compressor.
