Saving energy, increasing efficiency and conservation are all terms used to describe ways we can reduce our overall energy consumption. Why conserving energy is important?
There are several reasons for why we would do this in our houses, but it boils down to two main ones: To save money by reducing our electrical bill (or our general energy bill for that matter) and lower the stress we put on the environment by using less energy.
The climate change or the climate crisis is rapidly getting worse and we need to reduce energy consumption even on an individual level. In fact, if everyone started saving energy at home, we are already on a good way to getting emission levels down to normal.
Energy conservation has been getting an increased amount of attention in many countries in the last few years. Better energy conservation and management is starting to take place in the industry. Clean energy companies and organizations such as Energy Saving Trust, funded by the British Government, are doing a great job at providing useful information on energy conservation programs and home energy saving.
