If you have never visited the EnergyStar.gov website, it is a great place for you to learn about energy usage and energy savings techniques. The energy Star website has many sections, one of the sections is called energy-efficient products. This energy-efficient products section helps you by pointing you in the direction of products that can help you save energy at home. Some of the things spoken about on this page are programmable thermostats. There’s even a video, it teaches you how to correctly use a programmable thermostat. Truth be told, I don’t think the energy Star.gov website has quite caught up with our hot Texas summer needs. I see here on this website, they say the number one energy use is heating. Well that might be the case throughout the country but it is not the case here and Austin Texas. This page talks a great deal about things like furnaces and heat pumps. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting place to visit if you have a few moments.
