You don't have to do a complete remodel to save energy. Even small changes can make a big difference in your utility bills. Have you found a way to save energy at your house?
- I used biogas in my home. Biogas is produce from waste of animals, like dung in a confined tank fermenting and giving flammable gas for final use.

Evaporative Cooling for AC
- One trick is to re-route the cold water (condensate) line from my mini-split AC to drip the distilled water over the hot condenser coils, making the unit more efficient by using both the temperature change from cold water to hot coil temp, and then the heat of the phase change from liquid to gas as the water evaporates.

- I used SB221 bronze film on the west facing windows of my home and installed fluorescent and LED lighting, as well as keeping things unplugged when not in use. Put in new weather stripping on all the doors.
