Conservation Methods

A.Solar panels: Collects solar power and converts it into energy

B.LED Lights: These are more more efficient, last longer, and cost less in the long run

C.Direction Changing Ceiling Fan: These can help keep warm and cold just by turning a switch on the fan

D.Smart Thermostat: Smart thermostats know when you are home and when you are not and get used to what temperatures you like the most it will also turn up the heat if it is too cold and someone is home and will also turn down the heat if it becomes too hot and someone is home.

E.Remote Composting Toilet: Takes human waste and puts it in a bin.

F.Energy Star inverter Mini Fridge: Uses up less energy, converts DC currents to AC currents, and costs less than a regular fridge

G.Mini Wind Turbine: Since it's on the side of the house, whenever we are driving it turns and produces energy.

H.Reclaimed Wood: Takes unused wood and uses it instead of throwing it away and buying more wood.

I.Spray Foam Insulation: Spray foam insulation doesn't allow as much heat and cold out of the house as regular insulators do.

J.High Performance Windows: These windows allow more sunlight into the house which reduces the need to turn on the light during day when the sun is just asking to be a lightbulb.
