A quick way to make use of your time during this Lockdown.

Certain appliances should be serviced in order to make them more energy efficient. While it is true that checking an appliance and/or getting it serviced can cost money, these steps can more than pay for themselves in terms of the amount of energy saved. In addition, regular servicing can prolong the life of the appliance and make it safer too.Here are three main appliances that you would need to be careful about. 

Cooking Stoves:

Cooking stoves might run on mains gas or bottled gas. Keep the stove and burners clean to reduce the risk of fire. Follow all instructions for a self-cleaning oven. Some people cook with solid fuel stoves. These should be inspected annually and kept clean at all times, and the chimney or egress for the air should be cleaned twice a year.

Your Air Conditioning:

If you live in a place that is warm all the time or experiences hot summers, it is important to maintain your air conditioning unit/s. With small window appliances, keep them clean and dust free, especially the filters. With a unit that cools the entire home, follow the manufacturer's instructions and maintain according to the warranty's suggested schedule. Keep the vents clean so the unit can operate efficiently.

Refrigerators and Fridge/Freezers:

Follow the guidelines in the booklet and check the warranty. Be sure to dust under the unit, around the coils at the back, and any air vents at the front. Check the length of the warranty and servicing terms, if any. Consider adding on a service contract through an appliance insurer or the place where you bought the item. In some cases, they will not only cover repair or replacement, but also the cost of any spoiled food if the unit breaks down completely when it is full to the brim with your grocery shopping.

You might think maintenance would be cumbersome, but think of it as a long term perspective of saving money in the long run.
