Energy Savings

Energy savings is important for saving money as well as, our environment. Our Energy Savings pages include tips for money, the use of energy star appliances and how energy is produced. By following just a few of the simple tips found on this ORUD web site, you can make your home more comfortable and easier to heat and cool—while you save money. ORUD provides current information from DOE, Energy Star, Vent Free Alliance and Rheem on energy-saving and efficient natural gas technologies.

In addition to energy savings in your home, provided below is information on how energy gets from its creation to your home and how that translates into the efficiency of that actually energy source (we call this site verse source). The importance of this is the environmental impact natural gas has verses electricity, because it is all of our responsibilities to take care of our planet.
