Did I do them all?

1. Compact fluorescent lightbulbs
All but units like the one in the fridge and oven or those that see 10 minutes of use per year are now CFLs.

2. Outdoor solar lighting
I use that every day from dawn til dusk.

3. Programmable thermostats
Yes. The "Off" setting is programmed as often as possible.

4. Air filters

5. Electric water heater blanket
One on. Also flushed the tank this year and lowered the temp. However my water heater blanket is not electric. I wonder how that would help.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
