Energy is used in many ways in the home, perhaps in more ways than you realize. In order for a modern home to run effectively, each room of the house must have enough energy to supply a variety of appliances and electronic devices.
Modern households need far more energy to meet the needs of their occupants than homes in years past, and that amount continues to grow. As a homeowner, you may find that you are required to pay more for electricity with each coming year. If you own an older home, you may be asking yourself if it's time to replace your electrical box to gain increased electrical service.
Energy is an inescapable requirement of living in a modern home. From the AC to the washer and dryer, energy is used constantly at all times during the day. The good news is that there are many ways to decrease energy usage in the home while still maintaining efficiency. By switching to energy-efficient appliances, by reducing your need for electrical devices and by improving energy efficiency in other ways, you can save energy and drive down your home's utility bills.
