One of the things forgotten on the movement to ‘new’ energy is the fact that our homes are so inefficient / old.  A typical American home wastes more than that of a Chinese home, so says she… http://theenergycollective.com/sbattaglia/193441/us-most-energy-waste

Regardless, we compete for resources like the animals we are.  It’s pretty much paramount to survival.

If you are looking to make a difference in your own dwelling, button up the windows and doors.  (the attic is a beast, btw)

An energy audit is a rational way to start & you can do it yourself too.  Here is what it basically entails – http://energy.gov/energysaver/articles/do-it-yourself-home-energy-audits  It seems simple but if your looking to save money, its’ a precursor. If you’d like to be energy ‘rich’, invaluable info.

  1. The energy audit that I did first when moving into my new home was looking at my bills. Yikes!

    there doesn’t seem to be a company around that is will to do energy audits, but I am sure my home is the one of the least efficient around.

    I think I am going to do it unless someone can give me a good reason not to… I can’t have many more months like the last ones… and winter is not even here!

    I wish I would have done research on getting an efficient home before I by my energy sucker.
