There is too much misinformation out there regarding energy saving for buildings. Advanced Control Corporation – the industry leader in building automation, energy management, system integration, access control and CCTV solutions, was pleased to see the Miami Herald writing about the truth of those energy saving tips in Sunday’s paper.
Michael Blasik, a building-science consultant from the Boston area, did an analysis that included the studying the utility bills of homeowners who participate in home weatherization programs and compared their savings to the expectations offered by such sources as government agencies, utility companies and the media.
Blasik found the most noticeable difference in your energy bill could come from some low-cost, low-effort measures. These included: Unplug an underused refrigerator; change the thermostat when you are away or asleep; activate your computer’s sleep mode, turn off the television when you are not watching it and to switch to efficient lightening.
