I really hate watching the evening news. I have no interest in it, do not care what is going on most of the time and it flat out depresses me! They never have anything positive to say these days. So why bother with it? Well, I was over a friend’s house and they had the news on, and for once, I have to say they actually said something non-depressing and actually useful! They did a whole story on energy savings in the country, and with it, came a ton of energy savings tips. The energy savings tips they gave were some things I already knew about, like not leaving lights on when you don’t need them and not running the television set if you’re not watching it. But the energy savings tips that really got my attention were related to the use of heating and cooling products. They said that central heating and air conditioning systems were the main cause of ultra high electric bills, and that there was a few ways around this. One energy savings tip they gave for HVAC use was to buy a few space heaters for the Winter instead of using the heating. That one was really a shock! I never knew that space heaters did not use a ton of energy! The other was suggesting buying a few ductless mini split air conditioning systems to cut use of your central air conditioning system in the Summer. Another energy saver I didn’t know about! Well, thanks to this news story, I know what i’m going to be buying very soon!
