Energy efficiency or conservation? What’s more affordable?

I had a chance to think about the difference between energy efficiency and energy conservation today. These terms are showing up more often these days because more people want to reduce their impact on the environment but I don’t think many people understand the difference between the terms.

An example of energy efficiency would be if you changed your light bulbs from incandescent bulbs to LED bulbs or upgrading your insulation, you have to buy products to become more energy efficient.

On the other hand, energy conservation is making lifestyle changes to use less energy all together. For example, turning off the lights when you leave a room, adjusting your thermostat, being aware of your energy usage in general and making adjustments in your lifestyle to save energy.

To save money on your energy bills without any investment in solar panels, wind turbines or energy efficiency products, think about energy conservation since it’s something we can all do if we set good energy habits. Here in the USA, most of us have grown up with very reliable and abundant electrical service, so its easy to get into the habit of wasting energy, don’t you agree?

What have you done to become more energy efficient or have you came up with a creative method to conserve energy?
