Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) October 29, 2015
To celebrate Energy Star Day, 99Smarthomes.com has released an infographic designed to help American consumers reduce energy waste.
“The amount of energy wasted in America in 2012 could power the United Kingdom for seven years,” informs 99Smarthomes.com spokesman Jay Smith. “We know Americans want to do better, but don’t always realize how small changes quickly add up to big energy savings. We developed this infographic to give everyone access to 15 quick and easy ways to make their homes more energy efficient.”
The great thing about energy savings is that it is reciprocal; as you reduce your energy consumption, you save big on utility bills too.
“It’s very motivating to know that by just switching to programmable thermostats, you can save up to $180 per year,” says Smith, “and with today’s wireless technology, you can even control these thermostats remotely by using your smartphone.”
Other smart solutions include keeping on top of your home maintenance, such as changing your air filters on time and installing a drip shower head that doesn’t waste water as you lather up with soap. Smart blinds not only reduce heat loss by over 80 per cent, they can put an additional 15 per cent savings directly back into your wallet.
“We are paying for the energy that is wasted in our homes,” Smith warns, “and we waste a whopping $130 billion dollars a year as a nation! Let’s put that in perspective. Apple Inc. has a reported $178 billion in cash. The technology behemoth that is one of the most valuable companies in the world, not to mention the largest tech company on the planet, has just a bit more cash on hand that what America wastes every year. The United States Census Bureau shows America’s population to be approximately 322 million; and that means each American is letting approximately $403.73 slip right through their fingers. We are talking about a huge sum of money and a massive amount of wasted energy. When you don’t turn off a light or replace an appliance with a more energy efficient one, you don’t really think how the small change plays out in the larger scheme of things, but I guarantee that every small step you take to make your home more energy efficient results in a huge, positive change in your wallet and for our planet.”
