/PRNewswire/ -- Consumers can dramatically reduce their energy bills if they take a 3-course meal approach to energy efficiency, according to a
based marketing company.
"Energy savings strategies fall into three categories," explained
, vice president of marketing at Soluxe Energy Solutions in
, Connecticut. "People who adopt one improvement from each group can reduce their consumption by 50-100 percent" he added.
Kaminski said the company breaks savings strategies into three categories: Fuel, insulation and technology, or "FIT." "If homeowners adopt a balanced meal approach of one strategy from each category they can slash their energy bills," he said.
According to the company, fuel strategies include converting from heating oil to natural gas or improving fuel efficiency through furnace upgrades. Insulation includes sealing the building envelope or sealing leaking ducts. Technology applications include
geothermal heat pumps
energy star appliances
"By trying to be FIT," Kaminski said, "consumers can reduce their own bills and cumulatively reduce our dependence on imported foreign oil."
Soluxe helps consumers identify the appropriate improvements for their homes and businesses. "We help demystify the world of energy savings," Kaminski said, "and find qualified contractors to do the work."
