With winter weather coming fast, it’s a good time for homeowners to service their home heating systems. Doing so can save money on fuel, and might even prevent a fire.
Fewer Americans Are Turning Out Lights
Americans are less apt to turn out lights when not in use — or seek out energy-efficient appliances — than they were just a few years ago, according to a new poll.
The poll, from Harris, found that majorities of Americans still do basic things to save energy, but the percentages have dropped since 2012. For instance, 79% do things like turning off lights, televisions or other appliances when not in use. But that’s down from 82% in 2012.
