We all love to lavish gifts on loved ones and friends over the holidays. If you’re like me, you may have gone a little overboard and need a little cash to help pay for it all. Xcel Energy to the rescue! If you have an old refrigerator or freezer that is in working order, Xcel will come haul it away AND pay you $50 for the privilege. Plus they estimate you’ll save an additional $50 per year on your electric bill by unplugging an old dinosaur appliance. So give it a thought. Do you have an extra refrigerator or freezer in the garage or basement? Are you really using it? On home inspections we see extra appliances plugged in all the time and wonder if they’re being put to effective use. It sounds like such a great idea to have an extra beer fridge but would it be possible to move the beer to your kitchen fridge or to buy a small dorm-size refrigerator instead?
