Energy Efficient Space Heaters-Advantages of heat adjustment with space heaters, the most energy efficient type of space heater, electric resistance heaters, the advantages of insulation to prevent heat loss and home made solar heaters that use beverage cans and black paint.

Energy Efficient Windows-The design of an energy efficient window and the types of gas used in between the panes of glass, the importance of insulating your whole home as well as your windows and making sure the windows meet regulation standards.

Energy Efficient Refrigerators-Energy efficient refrigerators can be found at most appliance stores and come with energy star logos if they qualify by reducing their energy consumption by 20 percent compared to a normal fridge.

Energy Efficient Doors-Energy efficient doors can be found on both the front and rear of the house and could qualify the homeowner for up to $1,500 in a federal tax credit depending on the situation.

Energy Efficient Dryers-Energy efficient dryers aren’t necessarily available with the current technology because of the cost of heating up clothing, but other measures can reduce your need to use a dryer.

Energy Efficient Furnaces-Energy efficient furnaces focus on the annual fuel utility efficiency of between 10 and 15 percent compared to normal furnaces while also requiring efficient blowers.

Energy Efficient Roofing-Energy efficient roofing comes in a wide variety of materials from foams to shingles to metals to ceramics, but all provide a high level insulation from the harsh elements.

Energy Efficient Washer-An Energy Star energy efficient washer must consume at least 30 percent less water and 50 percent less water than a non-qualifying washer meaning more savings over the lifetime of the appliance.

Energy Efficient Air Conditioner-An energy efficient air conditioner will be 10to 14 percent more energy efficient than regular if it has an energy star logo, saving you money over the lifespan of the unit.

Energy Efficient Fireplaces-Energy efficient fireplaces make up a good portion of the industry as long as various portions, the flue and a facade front are in place.

Energy Efficient Portable Heaters-Energy efficient portable heaters come in the flavor of vented heater from the exterior of the building to exhaust noxious gases from the home or living area.

Energy Efficient Insulation-Types of insulation including closed-cell and open-cell foam, the benefits of both kinds and the principles of heat movement.

Energy Efficient Freezers-Tips to make your freezer more energy efficient and the improvements with new energy efficient freezers.
