How much energy do you think it takes to power the life you live on a day-to-day basis? A recent article on SaveOnEnergy.com highlighted how much energy it can take to just fuel your morning routine on a daily basis. If you’re currently on the hunt for a Pittsburgh On Your Lot builder this spring to build your new home, you can probably only imagine how much energy that takes from your days as you search online for hours at a time. Parry Custom Homes, shares a breakdown of how we use our energy on a daily basis, for the good and for the bad.
When doing your day to day tasks, you may not realize how much energy you use on a daily basis. However, when you consider all of the electronics that are involved in your day to day life, there is a lot of energy being spent in your daily routine that you probably never stopped to realize!
In today’s modern living society, we are able to use energy without even having to work for it or think about where it comes from. To make it easier to understand the energy usage of basic daily activities, researchers at the online energy marketplace SaveOnEnergy.com converted these tasks into units of human activity. Any physical action like walking up a flight of stairs, taking out the trash, lifting weights after work, uses energy just like the electricity in our homes does. Comparing the two shows how much we benefit from electric power permeating our daily lives.
Checking your email and reading the news on your iPad requires little energy to do. However, it truly requires the same energy as climbing almost 29 flights of stairs. That is nothing however, compared to the energy it takes to make a cup of coffee. That task requires the same energy it would take to scale 383 flights of stares, which would be the same as climbing the total of two Empire State Buildings.
