Save energy and help the environment, it is the responsible thing to do. Commercial electrical energy has to be produced, often at the expense of releasing greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases trap energy from escaping to outer space.
The way greenhouse gases cause the Earth to heat up is simple to understand. The Earth takes in energy from the sun, and later gives that energy away. The energy leaving the Earth includes infrared radiation, which is absorbed by certain gases. When the gases that absorbed the infrared radiation gives the energy off, it can be reabsorbed by gas in the atmosphere, or even the Earth itself, inhibiting the cooling process. The best way to avert this process is to reduce energy usage, so any product that saves on electrical or gas energy consumption has a positive impact on the environment, while saving the use of commercial power money.
The products discussed in this article are designed to reduce energy consumption. Thus, they serve a valuable purpose in the efforts to halt global warming. Even those of us with solar power may be connected to the power grid, so use of energy saving products still can have a positive impact.
