That's correct, energy saving bulbs didn't just come out a few years after the turn of the century. Since 1982 we have conducted and managed thousands of energy audits for homeowners, businesses, organizations and celebrities. Not one report recommended a single action that implied sacrifice or conserving. Never once have we stated that to save money and energy one must turn down their thermostat and wear a sweater. Yet, we have been instrumental in saving our clients money and oil for our country. We help homeowners achieve energy bill savings up to 60% or more when all recommended energy saving steps have been implemented correctly. You do not have to sacrifice by doing more with less, in fact you can have more and pay much less. American homes can be efficient with common sense and the correct application of current technology that really works. Thus, lowering your energy bills to be 1/4 of your neighbors with comparable homes. Then you can help them lower their energy bills. After all, this is a team effort and we are all on the same team.
Now we are introducing our new energy saving action that will continue to present "Trade Secrets" and Energy Saving actions on our new web site called GoingTrueGreen.com. We will keep you posted on our progress and eventually we will phase out EnergyHotwire.com, but this phase out will be several years from now.
Currently our plans are to host both web sites, EnergyHotwire and GoingTrueGreen so that information and facts can be obtained by our readers. Information such as why fuel suppliers or utility companies may tell numerous stories and excuses as to why you shouldn't implement an energy saving action. Since some of these companies and individuals, just want to sell you more of their product, not less. So don't expect to find just an energy saving tip or two on our GoingTrueGreen.com web site... You can learn what energy saving steps will work best for you and your house's specific situations. You will discover that there can be over one hundred energy saving steps that may apply to your energy consumption. Please don't expect to do one magical step that will lower your energy bills significantly. The only real way to achieve maximum savings is by determining which steps are best for you and spending the time to implement them. In most cases once you identify one step that will offer you a substantial savings, the only way to accomplish that step is by doing two other steps that are prerequisites for the first step. For example, making an energy saving change on your heating system probably means you have to address your Domestic Hot Water (the water you drink, shower, and cook with) and how you make it hot. Also you will need to review and probably address the insulation level in your attic and walls.
We will be able to determine what energy saving actions presented throughout our new web site's blog postings and videos are worth implementing. Several actions will have paybacks within months. Most money, energy and Earth saving actions will offer you a percent return so that the payback will be less than two years. We usually don't recommend steps that take longer than three years, unless there are other justifications besides saving energy. After all, it is nice to have a monthly savings on our utility bill that will reimburse us for the cost of implementing the energy saving action(s), such as buying a new refrigerator.
So what is the bottom line? We thank you for visiting and we invite you to become a deeper shade of green and more energy independent! This will take some work on your part, but at least you will learn facts about energy topics from your basement to your attic and no longer feel intimidated or overwhelm.
