Your old refrigerator or freezer can be costing you more than you realize. Models built before 1993 can use two or three times more energy than newer, high-efficiency models.
By getting rid of a second fridge and a standalone freezer in the garage or basement, you could save up to $150 a year. To make it easy, we partner with the statewide Focus on Energy program to offer free appliance recycling – and a $40 cash-back rebate per appliance (limit two per household).
Through this program, 95% of refrigerator or freezer components are reused, and the refrigerant and foam insulation are disposed of safely.
Appliances must be in working condition and 10 to 30 cubic feet in size. See www.focusonenergy.com/residential or call 1-855-398-5226 to learn more.
Electrical problems contribute to 51,000 home fires in the U.S. each year. Consider installing ground fault circuit interrupters in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, workshops and other areas where water and electricity may come in contact. For more tips, see www.esfi.org.
