Energy conservation can be practiced through any behavior that results in the use of
less energy. This can mean simply turning the lights off when leaving a room, or recycling recyclable products. Typically, energy conservation is performed through behavioral changes and not through physical upgrades or retrofit. A recent report from the consulting firm McKinsey found that buildings in the US could save $1.2 trillion by investing in simple, low-cost improvements like sealing leaking building ducts. Conserving energy at home and in the office is easy! Try setting your clothes washer to the warm or cold water setting, rather than hot. Additionally, you can turn down the water heater’s thermostat, and always replace air filters as recommended.
