The largest misconception people have regarding energy is where they believe they use and waste the most energy. Heating and cooling are the main energy consumers in buildings and account for two thirds of a building’s total energy consumption. However, most of this energy is wasted due to inadequate insulation. Insulation is the most effective way to reduce energy costs. By using well-proven energy efficiency techniques, 70 to 90% of a building’s energy need for heating or cooling can be cut.
