The following article will help to answer many of your questions and provide useful information on how you can get started with the use of greener energy sources in your home today. Use a laptop computer instead of a desktop, which uses more energy. Making this switch can reduce your power consumption by up to 75%. This is especially true if you are an Internet addict or do heavy word processing. Because laptops are portable, you can also enjoy the convenience of taking your computer anywhere. Use a dehumidifier in your home. Humid air often feels warmer. Try running the dehumidifier before turning on an air conditioner. The air conditioner can be more expensive to purchase, and uses more energy. You might be able to get away without using the air conditioner. If you would like to save the environment, remember that it can be done in small steps as well as big ones. You might not be capable of spending lots of money in going green, but there are simple things that you could do such as cleaning your furnace's filters each month or by setting your heat at sixty degrees when you are not at home. Reducing the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees could save you a lot of money as well. Every little thing you can do will help. Use light with greater responsibility to make your home greener. During times of the year when the days are longer, keep light usage to certain times of the day. Use dimmers to cut down on light use, and use sensors and timers to make sure that lights aren't kept on if no one is inside the room. A low flow shower head is a great way to be green. You won't notice a difference in the feel of your shower, but you'll save a lot of water. You'll not only have lower water bills, but you will also help the environment by saving water. If you are trying to conserve energy in the summer, be sure to keep your shades drawn to block out the sun. Both curtains and blinds will help keep the heat from the sun out of your home during the summer months. Doing these things will let you use less air conditioning in the summer. You'll save money as well as energy. Be sure that any solar panels you install are facing toward the sun. Specifically, if your home is in the Norther Hemisphere, the optimal angle for solar panels is your home's latitude plus 15 degrees. The panels need to face south, by the way. This ensures you are getting plenty of power. Try not putting the temperature up too much, as it may be unnecessary. If you find the air a


little chilly, put on a sweater or an extra pair of socks. When heat is raised to a higher level you end up using a lot of energy you didn't really need to use. Use the ideas you have read in this article, and start incorporating them into your plan for your household. You will soon start saving a lot of money and help save the environment at the same time. Work at it little by little and before you realize it, your house will be green! magnum energy, marine ice maker
