Energy Conservation in the Home! How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

I’ve written before that:

When you think of green energy technology, you might think of things like wind mills, solar panels, or biofuels. While these advancements are certainly at the forefront of green energy, technology like computers, processing chips and electronic safety systems are also doing important work in maintaining the efficiency of such systems.

Bottom line, energy efficient actions is a renewable energy.  For example:

•  Making the switch to LEDs, or movement sensors, could save up to 80% of the energy used per bulb, compared to a standard lightbulb.

• Invest in a high-capacity solar battery which is an ideal backup electricity supply solution. It allows you to go ‘off grid’ if needed.

• Appliances and equipment that carry the Energy Star mark fall within the top 25% of the most energy efficient products, on average.

This great infographic has more ideas too. Enjoy!
