It seems like you can’t watch television for more than an hour without hearing about some new appliance or HVAC system that will save you money on energy bills. There has been and increased push when it comes to improving technology in this area. Every time I visit a local appliance store, I see stickers and signs all over the appliances that detail how energy efficient each item is. It has become commonplace and competitors are always trying to outdo each other in this area. The bright yellow stickers plastered on the front of everything make it easier to decide on which one works best for you. The government has put significant resources into promoting and even requiring energy efficiency. I like the savings that I get on my energy bill each month, and recently, I upgraded my HVAC system for this very reason. I have seen a significant decrease in my monthly energy bill. When I bought the air conditioning system, the salesman told me that it was the most energy efficient air conditioning system on the market. I didn’t go into the whole process thinking about that but, I am thankful now that I bought one that was so energy efficient. At the time, I just wanted a system that worked and would last me many years. I didn’t want to go to that great of an expense again anytime soon. The government is even offering tax incentives for people who upgrade to more efficient items. I will now be looking at other appliances in my lake home to see if I can save on energy expenses in other areas.
