Energy Efficiency Around the HomeAccording to a new study published in the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences, daily efforts American believe will save them money in energy costs are among the least effective while practices experts say can reduce energy consumption by up to 30% were among those least cited by people surveyed. At least 20% of the 505 across 34 states respondents believed that turning off the lights is the best way to save energy, when according to news release by Columbia University’s Earth Institute says that switching the lightbulbs to high-efficiency bulbs will save much more in energy costs. They say you can even leave them on all day and still save more that turning off the low efficiency bulbs. Other ways cited on this study to reduce energy includes buying a efficient car which only 2.8% of the people surveyed cited, switching to more efficient appliances and home weatherization. There are practices that people partake in that don’t really affect energy consumption a whole lot, such as driving more slowly on the highway as well as unplugging chargers and appliances when they’re not being used.
