If you find your energy bill is running rather high lately, look to your household appliances for cost saving techniques. According to Energy Star, an average home spends about $125 a month on energy bills. By incorporating some changes to your household appliances, you could well be on your way to cutting your monthly bill by 5% and promoting a green environment. Whether you're shopping for a washer and dryer unit or a new refrigerator for your home, help turn it into a green environment by buying an appliance that has the Energy Star label on it. By doing so, you'll purchase a product that uses 10%-50% less water and energy than most other models.
