Choose the right appliances to curb your home’s energy appetite

Your kitchen consumes the most electricity of any room in your house. Refrigerators and freezers are the most voracious, but even gas ovens draw electricity, too. Author Alex Wilson explains how to choose the most-efficient appliances, and how to maintain their high performance while cutting energy consumption. He shares news about appliance-efficiency innovations, too.
