Beat the heat: EPA's infographic is a good place to start

Beat the heat: EPA's infographic is a good place to start | Energy Efficiency | Scoop.it

There are a few things to like about this infographic put out by the EPA's Energy Star program.

For one thing, it has a whole section on climate change instead of the usual single-minded fixation on saving energy. While their five energy-saving tips are pretty basic, they are not trivial. Recommendation 3, "seal your heating and cooling ducts", is surprisingly important, given that many people have their air conditioning ducts running through their very hot attics and are wasting serious money by cooling it instead of the space below.

In areas of dense population, we should concentrate our efforts toward green and energy efficiency. Any improvement in energy efficiency would be compounded by the number of people this would be available to. That woould increase the cost effictiveness and impact on the planet quickly.
