Green energy is something a lot of people talk about, but there are not many sources available as of yet. Use this information to educate yourself about energy sources and better ways to care for the environment.
While it makes sense to change from traditional light bulbs to energy-saving light bulbs you should wait until your old ones are all burned out. It is not a good idea to throw away perfectly good bulbs in order to make the switch since that would be a way to waste energy as well.
If you want to conserve energy, adjust your air conditioning unit, so that it is set two degrees higher in the summer and two degrees lower in the winter. You will probably not be able to tell that you have changed it, but taking that step will save you on your monthly bill and bring down your carbon emissions.
Your furnace filters should be replaced annually, and inspected for monthly cleanings. Installing the filters in warm-air registers is also a great idea. Doing so will prevent debris in heating ducts and it reduces energy.
Check with a technician and see if switching to biodiesel for your home instead of fuel oil is a viable option for you. Many systems allow a switch to biodiesel or biofuel with slight modifications. Biodiesel is cleaner and more efficient to burn than oil, and it has a better affect on the environment.
There are no easy answers to the energy problems of today’s society, but learning everything possible about energy sources is a good place to start. The more people that understand the various energy sources options, the better changes can be made.
