We use energy in the home in many ways, both directly and indirectly. Here in the United States, a high proportion of energy is used to moderate the climate indoors and bring it to within a comfortable range, either by heating or by cooling. Another significant use is to lower appliances, electronic equipment and artificial lighting. Saving energy should be just as instinctive as putting on your seat belt when you get in the car. Turning lights off, learning the proper setting of thermostat, costs nothing but will save you a significant amount of energy dollars.
