Are you environmentally conscious but unsure of how you can make a difference? If going green brings to mind images of Amish style living, you will be excited to know there are some simple and fun things you can do to reduce your energy consumption. You do not have to construct windmills and solar panels or collect rainwater to make a difference!
If you did not know already, it will still come as no surprise that your central heat and air unit is sucking the most energy. Depending on the particular unit installed in your home, you could be spending up to $1.50 per hour to heat or cool your home. Now, you may be wondering how modern patio furniture or BBQ grills could affect your cooling bills, and that is a fair question.
Although your range may only consume about 10 cents per hour in energy, regular use makes your air unit work overtime. By cooking outdoors, you save on energy costs for both the range and your cooling system! It may seem like a small thing, but every little bit helps and besides getting outside is good for the soul.
Do you want a full working outdoor kitchen or a nice gas grill and modern patio furniture? Perhaps you have no idea at all! Visiting sites like patioproductions.com can give you plenty of different ideas on outdoor living and more. Will a simple outdoor patio set serve your needs? Perhaps you have a poolside deck that is just begging for an outdoor cabana bed! Let your imagination go wild!
You may not be able to completely eradicate your energy use via outdoor cooking and dining, but with every little step, you can make a difference. Of course, who doesn’t enjoy spending some quality time in the sun with friends and loved ones?
