Being energy efficient and helping to conserve our nation's resources is a hot topic these days and there's good reason why. Saving money may be the biggest and most obvious benefit to most families, but equally — if not more — important, being energy efficient helps save our natural resources while adopting renewable energy and cutting down on pollution.
Knowing the facts about energy consumption and conservation is important for everyone as the United States continues to advance its efforts to conserve.
We've done some digging ourselves and are sharing some quick facts to get you started.
If you're considering financing energy improvements for your home, shop around for an option that best suits your situation, making sure you understand the terms and risks of each option.
If you're looking to get started with energy-efficient projects but wanting more information on what will provide you with the biggest bang for your buck, you are in luck. The Department of Energy has rolled out a series of new data-driven tools and calculators to help you determine good starting points — taking the size of your house, year it was built, location, and much more into account.
We hope these new tools will help you get green — or greener — as we all work together to conserve and save.
