Energy Efficiency Basics
Energy Efficiency can include air conditioning and other mechanical equipment, in a home or building, which reduce energy consumption by utilizing advanced power saving technology. Most commonly you will see the EPA’s Energy Star certification on certain appliances and equipment. Energy efficiency also comes in the form of maximizing cold or warm air retention through the use of insulation in ceilings and walls as well as weatherproofing windows, doors and other parts of the building.
