Title: Energy Savers: Homes
Url: http://energy.gov/public-services/homes
Publisher: United States. Dept. of Energy. Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Description: Energy-saving activities are on the rise in the United States and around the world, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Savers for the home website provides helpful guidance to apartment dwellers and homeowners. The Department of Energy believes that all energy-saving efforts make an impact, so they encourage visitors to look for those changes that are feasible for their living situation and income level, rather than opting to do nothing, because it seems small. Visitors will find that the website divides energy-saving measures into several categories, including "Appliances & Electronics," "Insulation & Air Sealing," "Landscaping," and "Windows, Doors & Skylights." In the “Windows” link, information is provided to visitors who want to buy new energy-efficient windows or how to make existing windows more energy efficient. Along with each category link there is a right hand side menu with the headings "Learn More," "Features," and "Energy Savers Blog" that provide the visitor with links to other websites that would be of use, such as a map of appliance rebate states or the financing and incentives available for energy efficiency measures.
