Energy efficiency is the first step in saving energy and money for your home or business. Installing energy efficient lighting is a good start to reducing energy consumption. For those wanting to save more money and have a greater impact on carbon emission reductions, upgrading your furnaces and air conditioning are essential. Many people don't realize their heating and cooling systems consume more than half of a building's energy. New and cheaper products that focus on efficient energy are coming out everyday to help manage energy use independently, such as the new wifi thermostats that allow consumers to adjust their heating and cooling from their cell phones and ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems. Rebates are available in many areas to reduce costs. The links below will take you to websites that offer information on home and small business energy efficiency.
