Energy Conservation in the Home

Energy waste in the home has potentially serious implications for the environment. This is because it requires additional natural resources in order to produce more energy than is actually needed. Consuming these resources, such as coal or oil, in turn leads to more pollution in the form of smog and acid rain. In addition, there is also the threat of global warming due to the greenhouse gasses that come from burning fossil fuels to produce energy. Conserving energy, on the other hand, not only protects the environment but also the household budget. Saving money in the form of reduced utility bills is the immediate benefit of energy conservation in the home, which makes conservation mutually beneficial for residents and the environment.
