Alternative Energy

It’s no secret that our current methods of using fossil fuels for energy is harmful to the environment. Not only that but we are actually running out of deposit fuels and if we keep consuming energy at our current rate without replacing fossil fuels with a more renewable authority we will run out within the next 30 years and have no energy at all!

The hope is that we will soon have more sustainable methods of producing energy which are not harmful to the surroundings but until then you can help the surroundings, as well as your cash reserves, by practicing energy conservation.

We live in a society where we want the best of everything and we want it now. Unlike a age group ago, we don’t think of conserving energy. But perhaps we should. We need to save the earth

Im not suggesting that you turn off all your lights, throw out your stove and buy a cow, but conserving a Lilliputian bit can go a long way and if we all did it, it would really add up and would not only ease the consumption of fossil fuels but also reduce environmental pollution.

Five thing’s you can do to bulwark energy is to unplug those appliances that you aren’t using all the time. Your chargers, digital cameras, even your televisions and LCD screens should be unplugged at night. These actually consume energy even when they’re off as some are kept in “stand by” mode or have LEDs that are continuously using energy. The same goes for your laptop computers, don’t just leave them in relax mode turned them all the way when you go to bed at night.

You can do is get a programmable heatsinc . Experts say that the most efficient way to use it is to have it at 63 or less during the day when you are home, and 51 when you are sleeping at night and when you are not at home. must Having a programmable thermoregulator and programming it as such will ensure that you don’t go above these temperatures and can go a long way in reducing your oil or hydrogen consumption.

Three more ways Appliances are another area where you can bulwark energy. Be sure your refrigerator is set between 39 and 41F and your freezer between zero and 6F. Don’t preheat your oven and only use your dishwasher when it is over flowing. Use ice cold water whenever you are able in the washing machine and be sure to clean the lint filter in your dryer so it can run most efficiently. Of course, if you can afford it, buying new energy efficient appliances – they’ll save you on your electric bill.

Habitual energy conservation is a good habit to get into because no matter how plentiful or renewable energy sources are in the future, there’s just no reason for waste. So, the sooner you can get in the habit of conserving energy, the better for both you and the planet.
