A great way to lower your home energy bill and your personal carbon foot print is by updating your old appliances with new ones that are energy efficient. This is a great way to go green, assuming that your old appliances actually need replaced. Do not just replace everything because you want to be energy efficient because that will be wasteful, which is counter productive to the whole going green and reducing your carbon footprint movement.
You would be surprised to learn how little it costs to run these energy efficient appliances compared to your old ones that were not energy efficient. In fact, I recently got a new chest freezer for home and the little yellow energy efficient tag showed me that it will cost less than $100 in electricity for the year. Yep, that’s right, the entire year.
