There is always room for improvement. As you know, my blog is always about saving electricity. On this occasion, the kitchen, pay less for electricity in the kitchen, how can we save energy and pay less for electricity in this room of the house.

Just to give a quick glance to our kitchen, it is the room in the house with more appliances, more lights, and more things to do than any other room in the house. Yes, more than a game room. The kitchen drags more electricity than you can imagine. Let’s lower our energy consumption by giving our kitchen a hand with energy efficiency and pay less for electricity in the kitchen.

Ways to save electricity in the kitchen

  • Section the light fixtures

  • Prepare meals for days ahead

  • Use less water, especially hot water

  • Keep fridge door closed

  • Less use of the oven

If you section your kitchen lights, you do not have to turn on all the lights of the kitchen when you are getting a glass of water. Use LED light bulbs and use only the necessary lights for what you will do when entering the kitchen. As an example, an average room has 3 to 4 lightbulbs, an average kitchen has about 16 to 20 light bulbs. This means that you are using 4 times more energy in the kitchen than in any other room in the house.

If you do meal prep, you are not only saving electricity that will lower your energy bill. This will save you time and you will have more energy for yourself. If you like smoothies, you can fix a smoothie for 2 or 3 days ahead and you are using the blender only once. Who doesn’t like pasta? When you make pasta, cook the pasta in larger portions, you will have pasta in the fridge for the next few days. You just must leave the pasta without any condiments or sauce.

When washing the dishes; depending on your family size but, I never use the dishwasher, I do not have enough plates to fill up the dishwasher. Use the dishwasher when it is full. Remember that the dishwasher uses quite an amount of water, hot water, and dry the dishes with heat.

We talked about the fridge in the last few blogs. Remember that for every 60 seconds that the fridge’s door is open, it takes one hour to acclimate to the thermostat temperature. That is a lot of energy waste.

Finally, the oven. The oven takes time to reach the desired temperature to bake or cook whatever is needed to bake or cook. Not only that, but it also generates a lot of heat, this will make the room temperature rise and the A/C will need to help the house to acclimate.
