Advantages of Conservation of Energy

The earth's temperature is rising are result of CO2 emissions and heat into the atmosphere. It is important that we do our best to take measure to conserve energy. There are many benefits with energy conservation. Conservation of energy is an important tool to work against climate change. Energy conservation reduces emissions of greenhouse gas from fossil fuels. There are different benefits of energy conservation like lower utility bills and allows you to save the high costs of electric bills. 

Being energy efficient is doing more work using less energy; this is beneficial to you and your environment. There are many benefits from energy conservation, the most significant reasons for energy conservation or using energy in an efficient method are:
  • Energy efficiency saves money.
  • It improves the economy.
  • It is environmental friendly.
  • It improves national security.
  • It upgrades and enhances quality of life.
  • It improves indoor air quality.
Some of the Advantages of Conservation of energy are:
  • Decrease in air pollution: Burning of fossil fuels to produce energy released various gases and fine particles into the air. Uncontrolled release of these elements into the air can reduce air quality leading to air pollution and health problems. Reducing the usage of these fuels and conserving can result in better air quality and less pollution. 
  • Better health and safety: Cleaning of appliances used at home frequently can be energy efficient. This brings good indoor air quality and decreases health related issues. 
  • Money is saved:Use of energy conservation appliances for heating and lighting conserves energy and decreases the electricity bills helping you save money. 
  • Longer life span to appliances:Using energy conservation products and electronic items have a longer life span than other appliances. Thus, it can reduce the overall cost and maintenance costs. 
  • Reduces groundwater and surface water pollution: Extraction of fossil fuels and pollution contaminates the water and becomes unsuitable for consumption. Conservation of energy reduces pollution and use of fossil fuels resulting in reduced pollution of ground and surface water.
  • Reduces wildlife and land disruption: Extraction of fossil fuels and production of usable energy leads to a significant disruption to land, wildlife and natural environment. Hence, reduction in usage of fossil energy can help conserve wildlife and nature.
