Conserving energy in the home is a methodical approach to a never ending battle with the environment. Time and weather extremes tear away at our walls, foundations, roofs and windows until they no longer hold back the effects of cold and heat. Constant vigilance is required to keep nature out and comfort in. Watching your HEI go down each month is a sure sign that your conservation efforts are paying off. Sealing the leaks, adding insulation and replacing older less efficient appliances are the big “money makers” when it comes to energy conservation. Paying attention to air flow and solar effect can breed new ideas about how to conserve. Monitor your consumption in the most minor detail to see if your conservation efforts have paid off.
