Many systems will take a switch to some level of biodiesel without any extra parts or biofuel with slight modifications.
Keep covers on your windows when you are not in your home. This helps to keep your house cool and lower the amount of energy used. Try adding window coverings that block heat, such as shades or darker, and dark curtains.
Consider switching to solar-powered water heaters to make your home more energy efficient. If your location does not get too cold, you can use a solar water heater year-round. However, it’s best to keep a traditional heater for times when you need a lot of heated water, or if the sun does not come out for some time.
