Ways To Reduce Maintenance Fees by Olajumokeibk(f): 3:33pm On Nov 21, 2013
Let me go straight to the points;
Cut down the heating and water usage as much as possible.
If you pour hot water into a bottle and wrap it up in a towel, it stays warm for a very long time.
Don't just throw away the water even if the water gets cold, Instead, use it to brush your teeth, wash your face and to do the laundry.
Don't use the water by having it run from the faucet, pour it in a bucket to use.
Instead of using the washer, hand washing saves on water and electricity.
Ah... Don't use the electric kettle to boil the water, boil it on the stove top.
Don't throw away the used water, but use it to flush Urine down the toilet.
Always unplug any electronics that aren't in use.
Electric kettles and Electric blankets, anything that gives off heat uses lots of electricity, resulting in high bills. Rice Cookers are only used to make rice but not to keep the rice warm.
Reduce the use of a boiler to heat the air, keep your coat on to keep warm.
Search the house to make sure that there is no drafty air blowing into the house.
Blocking those drafty spots will also be of huge help. So warm.
Keep good ventilation and fresh air as it is good for air to be in its natural state when sweaty.
