For example, Episode 5 explores refrigerators. By watching a short video (2:29 minutes), you can learn six tips for saving energy and money. Some of them are:

  • Don’t hold the door open. It is better to open and close several times.
  • Are you wasting money with a half-full fridge? In short, no, but you may consider purchasing a smaller one next time.
  • The Energy Trust of Oregon will pay you to recycle your fridge – and will even and haul it away.
