Heat

Heat travels from high to low concentrations, unless something is in its way. A good way of saving energy is to trap heat when you want to keep something warm and to prevent it from coming in when you want to keep something cool. Here are a few ways to do that:

- When the option is available, use revolving doors instead of normal ones.
- Let hot foods cool off before putting them in the fridge.
- Thaw in the refrigerator instead of on the counter.
- Make sure your refrigerator seals properly.
- Keep your fridge away from sources of heat (oven, sunlight, etc.)
- Don't unnecessarily open the oven to check on your food.
- Cover your pots when cooking.
- Consider installing double pane windows.
