What is energy efficiency? [Video]

Energy efficiency is a vital part of the home, but why? What exactly is energy efficiency and why is it so important?

Energy efficiency is the ability to perform the same tasks without using a large amount of energy, in effect, using less than before.

Many confuse energy efficiency with energy conservation. Conserving energy can be explained as turning off a light, while efficiency would be more like changing the light bulb out for a new, LED bulb. 

By replacing bulbs or other appliances that are known to waste energy, money spent on utility bills can be saved, as well as reducing the amount of created greenhouse gases.

Investing in energy-efficient changes in your home will reduce your carbon footprint over time. Schedule an energy audit with Alban Inspections today to learn more.
