1000 Flowers for the Planet - #545 Open the Oven Door
Another great tip from zerowastehome.com is to open the oven door. After you’ve cooked your delicious meal or baked scent-filled goods for self and family, don’t close the door, turn off the oven and walk away. DO turn the oven off, but leave the door open and allow that heat to disperse into the room. This will keep your home cosy in winter, maybe even allow you to turn down the central heating by a degree and save a little bit more energy, which is always a good thing for the planet, and you’ll remain toasty warm. Conversely, in warmer weather it allows the oven to cool more quickly, helping the air conditioning to work more efficiently if it’s not struggling to combat the extra heat in the room. Easy tip, good effects.
