  1. Thanks for the great share! I also like the idea of Home Energy. The best part I like is this: The reliability and availability of modern energy sources cause people to tend to assume that it will always be accessible. And as for the case of non-renewable energy sources, most people do not know or maybe even refuse to accept that it will eventually run out.

  2. Thank you for mentioning that cleaning your air filters can help you save energy. I would want to keep my filters clean to allow an easier flow of air into the house as well as helping the heating or cooling units perform getter without straining. I will make sure to remember to do this as I look fro more ways to save energy. Thank you fro sharing.

  3. I like that you said that energy saving steps require little to no expense. When I was moving from fall to winter I noticed that my energy bill was going up. Some tips for saving energy would have been nice to know.

  4. I would have never thought about checking my home’s insulation levels. It is good to know that a low level of insulation in your home can make your electric bill go up. I just bought my first home and I don’t really want to pay to much for my power. I guess I should take a look in my attic.

  5. We have recently noticed our energy costs go up significantly. We want to make sure we are managing our home energy correctly to lower environmental impact and cost. I hadn’t thought about how something as simple as opening and closing the drapes could help save money. We may need to look into having more energy efficient electrical appliances installed as well. Thanks for sharing!
