Those who shop frequently have noticed that prices are much higher. Not to mention water, gas, electricity, and even telecom companies, whose prices will rise next month. That's why we must save where we can. If we learn to follow these habits gradually, we'll be able to lower the gas and electricity expenses by cooking meals.
When preparing meals, save gas and electricity!
There are certain things that we don't know, while others we even know, yet because we don't remember we don't execute. However, it is certainly worth it to bet on them after a year.
When you leave the door open for a while, the fridge consumes more energy. If it's the freezer, the damage can be even greater. It starts to form ice, and then we'll need to keep the door open for a long time to remove it.
Consider what you will need to remove first before opening the fridge door. This way you will avoid leaving the fridge door open for a long time.
Another vital point is to keep the refrigerator away from heat sources. Likewise, do not place hot food inside. Otherwise, he will have to work harder to maintain the cool temperature inside.
Regardless, you should always defrost food in advance, and this does not imply any taste issues. Unless we do this, we will need to use running water or in some cases the microwave. This is a higher expense.
Before lighting the stove, make sure you have all of the cooking supplies you will need to have at hand, preferably already cut.
If you have the chance, do it again. This way you save time as well as energy!
Another important aspect to keep an eye on is to cover pots and pans whenever you cook to avoid heat loss from the stove.
Cook only with the water you need, and reuse it at the end.
Choose to use the microwave rather than the oven, and save 60% less energy. Lastly, wash the dishes in the dishwasher rather than washing them manually. In fact, some people prefer to pre-wash the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. However, this is not the case.
It's just that the detergents we use today are super powerful and efficient at cleaning up. This pre-wash will only consume electricity and gas in an unnecessary way.
