As our planet’s resources continue to vanish, it is more important now more than ever to conserve energy. There are many easy ways to do this.
Quite a bit of energy is lost through the home. For example, houses with poor insulation lose energy as heated or cooled air escapes through cracks and empty spaces. The heating and cooling unit has to work much harder to keep the house at the desired temperature. Better insulation means less work for the units, which in turn means less energy consumed. Even turning the thermostat down a few degrees in winter or up a few degrees in summer will also help.
Turning off an unplugging appliances and electronics when they are not in use will also help to conserve energy. Even if they are off but are still plugged in, appliances and electronics still consume up to 40 of the energy they consume when on.
Finally, switching to compact fluorescent light bulbs is one of the easiest ways to conserve energy. They create the same amount of light as a traditional bulb, but use 75 less energy.
Conserving energy for our future should be a way of life for every household and business. Can’t get enough? There’s more: Conserve More Power With These Green Energy Tips!
