Why does EHW continuously state Americans can reduce energy consumption by 60% or more? There are numerous topics to this answer, just like there are numerous sections to this web site. One powerful realization to this statement is how today we leave our home to go out and about 76 items can be using energy! YES, 76 items!

No one is home and heat or central air cooling is running as if we were. Appliances, electronics, lights,
entertainment units and other items can be using energy. This all adds up to a big energy bill, wasted energy,
and harming the environment.

Let us realize that back in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and even part of the 1970s... People in America when leaving their home to go out, would check to make sure everything was off. If you looked at the electric meter outside, the wheel that spins around would not be moving when the refrigerator wasn't running! The gas meter would not be showing any consumption, et cetera.

Yes... They had appliances
in the 1940s:

Toaster, Ice Box (refrigerator), Oven,
S
tove, Vacuum, Blender and even an Entertainment Center with a Phonograph Record Player, Radio, and Television!
