Recycling pays off

Recycling pays off

Hanging on to an old fridge or freezer? It may be collecting more than just dust. According to ENERGY STAR®, keeping a second fridge in your garage or basement could add up to $80 a year in unnecessary energy costs—and even more if it’s an older model.

Luckily, our $50 recycling rebate makes it easy and rewarding to say goodbye. Just schedule your free fridge or freezer pickup and we’ll come haul it away to be responsibly recycled. Plus, you can also get $10 for each working dehumidifier or room air conditioner.

With in-home and curbside pickup options, there’s no cooler way to get $50.

Benefits of recycling your fridge or freezer:

  • Save space and energy.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Safely dispose of hazardous materials.
  • Save more than $220 in lifetime energy costs by replacing it with a new ENERGY STAR certified model.

If you have a working dehumidifier or room air conditioner you’d like off your hands, register for one of our small appliance recycling drop-off events. We’ll mail you a $10 rebate for each one you drop off and make sure to responsibly recycle it.

  2. Apply for a $50 rebate.
  3. Schedule a free pickup to recycle your old fridge and get another $50.
Amp up summer fun with these energy-saving party power plays

Amp up summer fun with these energy-saving party power plays

It’s official. Summer has arrived. Time to heat up the grill, turn up the tunes and get the party started. To save energy and money, try these simple party power plays. 

 

Take it outside

Hosting a crowd indoors can raise your home’s temp and make your A/C work harder. Instead, invite your guests to grab a cold one, head outdoors for the real fun and close the door behind them. And while they mingle, you can relax knowing you’re keeping the party energy up and the indoor temp down.  

Grill, baby, grill 

Give your oven the night off and your A/C a break. Grill instead. Add some cold sides and you’ve got the perfect recipe for the hottest party on the block.    

Cool it

Let your fridge relax, too. Allow leftovers to cool completely before putting them in your fridge. Doing so helps prevent unnecessary heat from entering your fridge and causing it to work extra hard to lower internal temperatures. Another great idea opt for beverage coolers that can be filled and wheeled into place outside for partygoers.   

Go for glow

Keep a good party going. Place strings of energy-efficient LED lights or solar-powered lanterns throughout the yard to give it a glow. Then, to save even more, add a timer to automatically turn off the lights at the end of the night.   

Avoid getting soaked  

If your party involves a pool, take a closer look at your current pool pump. It could be draining dollars. If it’s making noise, is shutting off unexpectedly or is more than seven years old, it may be time to take the plunge and purchase a new, more energy-efficient model. We offer a $350 rebate on ENERGY STAR® certified variable speed pool pumps.  

Follow these energy-saving tips and your next backyard bash won’t just be fun, it’ll be budget friendly, too.

Quick tips to help you save this summer

Quick tips to help you save this summer

It’s June, and that means summer is here. You can offset the summer heat by incorporating some energy efficient habits into your routine. Here are a few tips to help you save energy and money as temperatures rise.

Take advantage of shade. Blocking the sun’s warm rays can help lower your home’s temperature. Try planting trees or shrubs outside of your home’s windows, or purchase sunlight-blocking shades or curtains.

Keep hot air from leaking into your home. Seal openings with weatherstripping or caulk.

Install a smart thermostat. You can save energy with an ENERGY STAR® smart thermostat by setting temperatures to match your schedule. Leaving for a few days? Adjust the thermostat before you leave home or control it from your phone. We also offer rebates up to $100 for the purchase of a smart thermostat.

Check your HVAC air filter every month. Your heating and cooling systems use more energy than anything else in your home. Routine maintenance, like replacing or cleaning air filters, can lower your system’s energy consumption by up to 15%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. If the air filter looks dirty, change it.

Use a ceiling fan. As long as indoor humidity is not very high, running a ceiling fan allows you to set the thermostat four degrees higher without a noticeable change in comfort.
